How To Keep Yourself Motivated When Working From Home

The pandemic has brought a huge shift to our ways of working with many people finding themselves working from home at least a few days a week if not full time, but not everyone finds it easy to stay motivated when in a home environment. 

There are many reasons that people often find working from home to be more challenging than working in the office. Usually, when working from home you’re surrounded by more distractions, some people experience loneliness and miss the social aspect of the workplace that they may thrive on, and others find it difficult to find their ‘get up and go’ when it comes to rolling out of bed and starting work for the day.

If you have found it difficult to keep yourself focused on the task at hand when working from home and you are looking for tips on how to keep yourself motivated when working from home, then this blog post has been written with you in mind.

Budget Friendly School Packed Lunch Ideas

If you live in England or Wales and have a primary-aged school child, you will have likely considered buying school meals instead of sending your child to school with packed lunches. School lunches are free for children in Reception through to Year 2 as well as families on low incomes, but not everyone is eligible and not all children want to eat the lunches school provides. If you aren't eligible for free school meals you can end up paying around £2.30 a day.  That means that school meals cost around £11.50 per week, or £46 a month. If you’re on a tight budget, a single parent budgeting their weekly costs, or you are simply looking for ways to save money in your everyday life, keep reading.

10 Low Maintenance House Plants That Are Hard To Kill

Do you look at houses filled with plants and feel a little bit in awe and jealous? Plants bring colour and life into the home and they can even improve the air quality, but not everyone is green fingered. I used to think I had no chance of keeping house plants alive, I’ve even killed off an air plant, but I’ve discovered I had previously chosen plants which were too high maintenance for me. What I needed were plants that can survive, or even thrive, on being ignored. If you want to have house plants, but haven’t managed to keep them alive before then here are some plants that wont mind if you only water them once a week or whenever you remember.
