How to Stay Productive – Pandemic Edition

Here are some tips and tricks on how to stay efficient, keep a professional mindset, and manage video meetings like a pro. Here’s some handy info on what to wear, which equipment to purchase, desk options, and what to do when life goes back to normal.


You have surely tried PJs as at-home business attire but quickly grasped it’s quite challenging to remain focused while wearing bedtime clothes, so I highly recommend smart clothes, such as shirts and pants.


The type of equipment you should buy depends entirely on your requirements and preferences. You’ll need solid lighting, a reliable mic, and a nice background to keep your viewers focused. You can try posters, but be careful about the dimensions. I bought a few posters based on rough dimension estimates, and they didn’t work.


Sitting for long periods can be harmful to your health. But, do not despair. The solution is standing desks. They are sturdy and reliable, and there is a wide range to select from.

Return to the office 

Now that you have perfectly set up every single piece of equipment, your boss calls you with great news (or not so great news, depending on your inclination) – you are now free to come back to the office. No problem, you can easily dismantle your setup and move it.
