How to stay Productive during Covid-19
Our work productivity is important to the Business Continuity of our organizations and it allows us to scale up our organization business much more quickly when we can get back to our office for work. Below are some of the Business Continuity strategies that we can deploy quickly.
Meetings: Work anytime from home on any device Instead of on-site (face-to-face) meeting. On-line meetings can be as effective as it allows many users to participate in the meeting remotely via the internet.
Trainings: On-line trainings can also be very effective as it allows many users to participate in the trainings remotely via the internet.

How to stay physically active during Covid-19
Physical activity contributes to both our physical and mental health. As many people are currently confined to their homes because of the COVID-19 pandemic, WHO/Europe has developed a guide to help people integrate simple, safe ways to stay physically active in limited space.
“It is possible to keep active, even when you are confined indoors. Now, as more of us are living and working or studying in the same space, it is even more important to take active breaks to move, stretch and make the time to focus on our mental well-being. The exercises we have shared in this guide are easy to do and require no special equipment. They offer a basic, safe starting point for making sure we all keep moving while staying at home,” said Lea Nash Castro, Nutrition and Physical Activity Officer at WHO/Europe.
WHO recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week for adults, or a combination of both. The guidance is intended for people in self-quarantine without any symptoms or diagnosis of acute respiratory illness. It should not replace medical guidance in case of any health condition.
