Working From Home WFH
Help! I have to move out my tea corner. Singapore has initiated a lockdown in the country for a month (the government called the lockdown a circuit breaker) and as a result, my whole family are working from home. I personally support a lockdown as it will help break the spread of the virus within the community and lessen the stress on our medical providers.
Video conferencing is one of the work that is performed daily. My family members have such daily 'meetings' online and video conferencing 'areas' had been set up at home. My tea corner had to be given up for this noble cause. It now appears my tea brewing will be done in the kitchen till I can find another corner for my tea toys. Mornings and afternoons have to be pretty quiet to accommodate these 'meetings'.
I would like to recommend a few tips on your video chats sessions
- raise your laptop about 5 inches from the table. You would 'look' better as viewers will not see up your nostrils during the conversation.
- position yourself from the camera that your shoulders and face can be seen. Not too near in that your entire face occupy the whole screen.
- some lighting on yourself and not depend on the laptop screen to light you up, You will look like a walking dead character if you do that.
Meanwhile, stay safe and drink lots of tea.
