Given the urgent need for social distancing to contain Covid-19, lakhs of people all over the world have been forced to work from home. Many are also realizing that pulling off remote working is not easy, given all the distractions, but realme India CEO Madhav Sheth has some practical hacks that may help, like finding a work wardrobe that works for you.

“Video calls or no video calls, I like being comfortable while I work, so my work-from-home style mostly includes pairing up a realme T-shirt with a pair of jeans/shorts,” he told ET Panache.

That isn’t the only tip in Sheth’s arsenal. Since the 21-day lockdown began, he has been exchanging practical hacks with his Twitter followers on how to enhance productivity during the lockdown, like starting your mornings with a music playlist, exercising your mind with brainteasers, meditating or cooking.

“I firmly believe this is the time to do something productive and not waste time just like that,” he wrote on a company blog.

Level Up
According to Sheth, the lockdown is the perfect opportunity to learn a new skill or a language, pick up a new hobby, start journaling or meditation.

“When one is trying to master a skill, there is a need for utmost peace of mind so that one can fully concentrate on that particular skill and keep aside all other worries and anxieties,” Sheth told ET Panache. “While people are working from home during the lockdown, they might have spare time on their hands, and therefore can utilize it to learn a new skill, or hone an old one. Personally, I have been cooking much more often these days.”

Cooking is not a new skill for Sheth but an old one that he’s trying to hone.

“My first cooking experience was during my graduation days. I started cooking easy things like tea, hummus with pita bread. They were one of the first things that I learned. Gradually I started developing an interest in fusion food and hence started experimenting with different kinds of sandwiches and quesadillas. I believe cooking is an art that involves creating a balance between taste and nutrition, and I am on my way to mastering it.”

Sheth also hopes to use this time to master Spanish.

“I have just started learning the language on Duolingo, and have been trying to get all the basics right. Spanish, being the world’s second most spoken native language, has always intrigued me. So I decided to use this time to learn it and understand it better.”
