Work From Home, Take the Laundry Somewhere Else is the New Normal
July 14, 2020
Once upon a time, you went to work every day and dreaded weekends at home when you inevitably had to face a mountainous pile of laundry. But because of the coronavirus outbreak, you’re now working at home. And it blurs the line between work and personal life.
States may be lifting restrictions, and you’re free to go out. But authorities still encourage people to continue remote work as needed. You may find it safer to stay at home as much as necessary. Or you may have realized that remote work is more effective for you. Either way, your prolonged stay at home could make you feel like you’re in an endless loop of eat-sleep-work-chores.
The best way to break that cycle is to balance the things you have to do at home and the chores you can pass onto someone else.
Laundry is a prime example of something you normally do at home. But you could arrange for pickup and delivery as one simple way to separate the professional and personal tasks you do in one place.
Why should you arrange laundry services today?
- You can focus on getting your work done.
It’s one thing to focus on your work when your colleagues are milling around. It’s another thing to work at home, where your bed and other distractions seem to slow down your productivity.
When you have someone else take care of your laundry, you have more time for yourself. So even though every day feels like a slow working day, you can take your time and have one less chore to worry about after your virtual shift.
- You minimize chores you normally worry about.
Housework, like preparing meals, cleaning the bathrooms, and dusting the furniture may feel troublesome when you also have to do remote work. Lighten your load by ditching the laundry.
Laundry services clear up at least a couple of hours that normally take up your time. This means you won’t have laundry plaguing the back of your mind every time you’re on your work computer. You also get more time to reward yourself with after.
- You have a clear divide between work and personal life.
Life can get frustrating when you need to get everything done in one place. So when you have to do remote work, delegate some household chores to experts you can trust.
It’s a tough time for everyone. So if you have an opportunity to ease the burden just a little bit, take it. It may feel unusual to work at home and have some of your chores done somewhere else. But it’s the best thing you can do to have a clear divide between work and personal life during this time of social distancing and remote work.
