Tips To Relieve Stress of Working From Home


Many people think that working from home could be in a lot more relaxing way. However, the employees who work from home feel highly stressed compare to the ones who work on site.

Why? Perhaps it is due to the higher use of mobile devices and the uncertainty or insecure to check on the phones constantly. Difficulty concentrating, loss of interest at home, feeling hopeless because of COVID-19, and feeling distant from others can also be the factors of the employee to feel stress.

1. Set your routine schedule

Create a routine that you can stick to it while working. Plan for your day according to your flexibility. If you wait until you feel like working, you may be going to delay your work too when you don't feel like working. Prioritize your task, and I will suggest completing the most complicated or challenging task first to avoid last-minute work. When you have a plan, you probably feel more relaxed to have a schedule to follow.

Report suggests Wuhan lab had emergency shutdown last October

According to Sinchew, The National Broadcasting Company (NBC) revealed that three sources briefed on the matter about an unofficial private analysis report on mobile phone location data claimed that the Wuhan laboratory which studies coronavirus, had shut down once in October.   Photo source: NBC NewsThe report is obtained by the NBC news verification unit which is based in London. The report suggests that there is no mobile phone activity in the area of ​​the Wuhan Institute of Virology from October 7 to October 24 last year. Thus, it is believed that a "dangerous event" may happen in between October 6 and October 11.Neither the report provides direct evidence of laboratory shutdown, nor mention evidence of novel coronavirus leak out from the laboratory.If the Wuhan laboratory was really closed at that time, it might prove that the novel coronavirus leaks out accidentally from the laboratory.However, many scientists are skeptical of the lab theory and still believe in a more reasonable explanation that the novel coronavirus is transmitted from animals to people.The analysis did not provide direct evidence to support the closure of the laboratory as it seems to present only a small fraction of mobile phone data.Cover photo: Freepik ll Freepik
