Because of the ongoing pandemic, most of us are still working from home. While this is a necessary precaution, a lot of people are finding it hard to be cooped up in their home 24/7. Some people, however, are enjoying spending more time at home.
There are a lot of distractions that come with working from home when your whole family is cooped up as well. But now that people’s homes are also their offices, they have taken the proper steps to adapt it to working life.
To avoid being interrupted in the middle of a meeting by the courier trying to deliver a package, people have started installing a large mailbox for packages outside their house. This working from home hack could save you a lot of stress and time, here’s how:
Working From Home Problems
Aside from the children running around, one of the biggest complaints from people is the constant ringing of the doorbell from the courier trying to deliver the 10th package of the day. Now that the festive season is well underway and visiting the highstreet is limited, you will be ordering a lot of things online for Christmas. It can be rather frustrating to receive a knock at the door when you’re in the middle of a meeting or enjoying your break.
Imagine for a second, not having to worry about being available when the courier arrives with your much anticipated package, how glorious! When your day is filled with important meetings, the last thing you want is to have to excuse yourself to answer the door. Similarly, a lot of customer service jobs don’t allow you the freedom to keep a customer waiting to answer the door. Even if you are just focusing on your work and have entered a flow state, a knock at the door can throw you through a loop by making you lose your train of thought.
Peace of Mind
Especially at this time of year as we get closer to Christmas, missing a delivery if you simply can’t leave a meeting could mean that it doesn’t arrive again until after Christmas day.
Perhaps the most valuable aspect of a package drop box is the peace of mind it gives you. The simple act of installing a secure package drop box outside your house could save you so much stress at the back of your mind as you work through the Christmas rush.
