Working from home - how to strike a balance between work and home life

Few things have become as important as our homes in recent weeks and months. Our own four walls are also the only four walls at the moment, at least for those of us whose professional activities allow it. The obligation to work from home has Switzerland firmly in its grip and is changing the way we live. Where children also have to be taught at home, chaos is inevitable.

Anyone strolling through the neighborhood early in the morning will catch a glimpse of laptops in the children's room through brightly lit windows, flat screens on the kitchen table, pens, paper and charging cables between coffee cups and glasses of water.

But what does a home office actually have to be? Beautiful, comfortable, functional or always available? That's what the Pack Easy migratory bird is pondering. Because what the local sparrows are whistling from the rooftops has been carried all the way to beautiful South Africa and leaves our smart feathered friend no peace.

Cocooning - a trend gets a new lease of life

Cocooning – ein Trend erhält neuen Aufschwung

Forced or voluntary, never before have we spent so much time in our living spaces. Cocooning is the name given to this trend of withdrawing completely into the private sphere, of spending time at home as a leisure activity. The focus is on comfort. But if you're thinking of baggy sweaters, tracksuit bottoms and laptops on the bedside table, you're mistaken. While this is undeniably comfortable, sooner or later it inevitably leads to a certain lethargy that acts like poison on an already depressed mood and spreads to all family members.

We know how to stop that! Because the Pack Easy migratory bird knows all about cramped conditions in the nest at home and lots of hungry mouths to feed. And he knows that tidiness is the be-all and end-all of successful cocooning. If you can quickly and neatly organize things lying around, you can turn the dining table into a functional workspace in no time at all and create a beautifully laid table for the family snack break.

Small helpers with a big impact

Buying an ergonomic desk for every member of the family, plus perfectly coordinated chairs and lights, is impossible for most of us and not something we want! After all, we are proud of our cozy living room! However, thanks to ongoing mobility restrictions, the travel account may have a surplus and finance a few little helpers with which we can set up a well-organized workspace. And if we swap cardboard boxes and plastic folders for elegant leather accessories, work will be twice as much fun! The notepad and laptop are also wrapped in elegant writing cases, the charging station has a cell phone holder and the rest of the small items disappear into our smart pocket emptiers. In no time at all, we can create an environment in which ideas are born and work comes easily to us. And the accessories can do so much more!

Fortunately, the obligation to work from home not only brings restrictions, but also allows us unimagined freedoms. It has never been so easy to escape the dull days of February. Because as long as the laptop travels with us, we can leave the fog behind and let the sun shine on our noses in the mountains. We carry our workspace in one bag and our clothes, winter shoes and make-up bag in the other. The stylish weekender has room for everything you need for a few days in your second office.

The leather accessories and bags from Pack Easy are extremely robust and durable, they are designed to be packed and unpacked for many years and will become loyal companions on our travels, whether for business or pleasure. We creatures are less constant and that is why not only the Pack Easy migratory bird flies south year after year to soak up the sun, but every little break from the dull everyday life of the pandemic also acts as a source of energy for us.
