Amid the coronavirus outbreak, Bethenny Frankel and her BStrong disaster relief initiatve have stepped up to provide kits to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Now, The Real Housewives of New York City alum is sharing her best tips for staying positive and productive while working from home during a self-quarantine.
In an interview with CNBC Make It, Bethenny explained she actually prefers to work from home. Even under normal circumstances, she tends to stay away from the office.
“I’m a very good user of time, which is why I’m fine working in or out of the office,” explained the Skinnygirl founder.
To limit distractions and stay as focused as possible, Bethenny strongly advises using social media as infrequently as possible.
“I think you should go and look at your social [media], get a sense of what’s going on,” she explained. “But I don’t think you should be living on social [media] or on the news, because it’s very activating.”
Instead, she suggests hunkering down to keep your mind on the task at hand. “You can get a lot more done in a short period of time if you just put yourself in a room and focus.”
Bethenny said there are plenty of advantages to working from home that you can use in your favor, such as the ability to think with a fresh point of view.
“When you’re home, a lot of times, better ideas come. When you’re not at work, clarity about work happens,” she said.
With all things considered, Bethenny also mentioned that even if your home workday does not necessarily go as planned, you can still maintain a positive mindset.
“I always say, ‘All roads lead to Rome,’ which means you will get derailed and may hit a roadblock, but as long as you’re moving forward and staying positive and being productive, you’ll end up getting to where you want to get to,” said Bethenny.
