Covid-19 pandemic is changing many aspects of everyday life. Including perspective, and anticipation of the future. Since the socialization of new habit adaptations or new normal, there are many things that we have to adjust. Working from home, studying from home, and worshiping at home are three activities that have become the new normal.
Like it or not, our daily life will no longer be the same as it was before the Covid-19 Pandemic. How then can we continue our activities, while adopting and becoming part of new habits? Of course, the safest and most convenient way we can do is implement health protocols. Here we present five tips for arranging a house when it’s new to normal:
Layout To Support Productivity
Having a private workspace can help you concentrate more on working from home. You can create a comfortable working angle like an office that can support productivity. Choose table furniture and work chairs with enough storage to put important documents. When selecting these two items, make sure they are level with the direction of view, have a comfortable seat and back.
Add Plants For Decoration
The length of time spent at home is not impossible to bore you. You can outsmart this by adding decorative elements in the form of potted plants. Raising plants also helps maintain mental health, that is, relieves physiological and psychological stress. When things get tough on a daily basis, caring for plants can help you divert your mind to relax.
The result? The mood will improve.
You know a messy and unorganized space can affect your mood. Not only does it make the mood gloomy, but cluttered rooms also tend to make you lazy and can delay work. Besides being uncomfortable to the eye, messy rooms are also not good for health. In the new normal era where everything is done at home, a clean and tidy room is a must. So, don’t underestimate the importance of storage. Which shelves or cabinets you need? Closed cabinets or open shelves? The right storage area will keep your home free of dust.
Free Up Space, Choose Essential Decorations
Staying at home does not mean minimal movement, especially in today’s era where health is a top priority more than ever. Staying active at home is not impossible, you know. The key is in the arrangement of the space so that it is spacious enough for exercise. Making it happen is not difficult, starting from arranging things and decluttering until only the essential decorations and furniture are left. Organize important items that you always use on a daily basis. That way, when you want to exercise, you can get rid of these items temporarily and rearrange them easily.
Pay Attention To Air Ventilation And Natural Lighting
Good air ventilation is one of the requirements for a healthy home. Pay attention to the ventilation in the house, do you open the windows often enough? Good air circulation will help you clean the room from dust, germs, and dirt. Natural lighting is just as important. Lack of sunlight makes the room humid, and it can become a breeding ground for disease. Open the windows in the morning to get some sunlight and fresh air. It’s not difficult to organize a healthy house when it’s new to normal? A healthy home helps you carry out your daily activities.
