To ease this situation up, we have a few hacks which can easily tackle this situation.
Quit hitting the snooze button when the alarm rings is the foundation of this hack. Once you snooze it, it often happens that right from the moment you get up, you need to shove your face on the laptop screen. That shouldn’t happen. Get up, get freshen up. Listen to some songs and have breakfast. Talk to your family and then after lighting up your mood, you can start working. It will help you to bring more productivity into your work.

Happy Monday!! This weekend, I had an eye check up and got my eyes dilated, then went to the beach with my friends. Definitely was not a smart mood, everything was so fuzzy the whole day! 🙈⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyways, I've been working for 3 weeks now and despite it being virtual, I've been having so many opportunities to talk and learn from different leaders across the company. I've been taking notes here and there and thought I would share some! Here are 5 PIECES OF ADVICE FROM MICROSOFT ENGINEERS:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. In a large company, VISIBILITY is key. Think about what deliverables you can work on to show strong impact. Speak up in meetings if you have an opinion. 👁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Culture is the most important thing for a team and company to succeed. Everyone who is hired is there for a reason; you are smart. To have culture, we need to bring our AUTHENTIC selves to work. 👩💻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Ask your mentor/manager for TRANSPARENT COMMUNICATION. If they see ways you can improve, it's better to know earlier so you can work on it, rather than when it's too late. 💬⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. Work life balance is crucial. Typical Americans work for over 40 years and burnout is real. You have plenty of time to work so make sure you prioritize your interpersonal relationships. 💛⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5. ASK questions!! ❓⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is one piece of advice you've gotten from someone? About ANYTHING – food, life, wellbeing, career, etc?
Another tip is to avoid working on the bed. Select a table to work from, or even sofa for that matter. This way, when you come to bed even in between the breaks, your mind is able to think it can get some rest now, so it relaxes. Continuously sitting on bed will not bring the same feeling to your mind, hence you will face discomfort.
Get up often, do some light stretches, get some fresh air from the balcony and keep your mind lighter. It is very important to clear your clutter often, else your system will hang. These are very basic hacks to follow. Also, make sure to distinguish between your dining table and work table. When you eat, there shouldn’t be any stress on the same table.
