Study from Home vs Work from Home

Study from home and work from home have become a new normal in Covid-19 pandemic. There are mixed reviews on both of them, with some pressing on the opening of educational institutions and offices, while others prefer the continuation of the new normal even after the pandemic. In this article, we will discuss the pros and cons of these two new normal lives.

Study from home is an unavoidable situation in Covid-19 times when all the educational institutions are closed following Government rules. Most students fail to follow up on what is taught in schools. They have to rely on private tuitions and Google or Youtube to learn the concepts well. Assignments and homework have increased drastically which have started interfering with the time a student used previously for revision or making notes. Many students have also become slow at writing, which will greatly impact their performance in exams in offline mode. Online exams are not the best way to test a student’s knowledge or development unless it is a competitive exam.

One major advantage of studying from home is that the journey time to school or college is now saved. Also, studying for competitive exams is best done from home so that we can focus more on academics or work. There is a third advantage for the teachers that now there is less interference by talkative students.

Work from home is an optional situation that is given to most employees who work on computers in digital platforms. The hospital sector is the most required sector at this time, hence it is operated fully as work from the office. Other offline service sectors like hotels, retail, transportation also have no choice but work from the office or centre. However, employees have been allowed far greater flexibility in schedule due to lack of transportation, leading to employee satisfaction.

India’s largest industry, the IT industry, operates almost entirely in online platforms and requires little presence in offline mode. Hence, almost all IT employees worked from home in the pandemic situation. IT requires skill development with growing skills in the Indian digital market. Hence, the time of journey to the office can be utilized better by working from home. The business team, sponsor or sales team, and management team can also operate from home in most sectors. Audit works, on-site monitoring works, and also works involving a lot of printing, photocopy, or scan have employees following a mixed or hybrid pattern of work.

The current scenario is fruitful for most businesses and many companies are looking forward to applying such a pattern even after the pandemic. Save on electricity bills, resources, journey hours, accommodation costs, and also involving more employees at work are the most common pros for work from home. Lack of interaction between team members and leads, lack of gossip after work, and lack of participation in activities outside of the offices are some cons of working from home. A hybrid model can do away with the cons, and include most of the pros except accommodation costs for people living far away from offices.

Is Freelance Industry that easy as shown?

If you want to make a mark in life, it is obvious that you will have to face hurdles and obstacles. Nothing great in this world can be without sacrifice. You have to sacrifice your leisure time for learning something new. You have to reduce spending time playing games to focus on your studies. Similarly, when it comes to your work life, you need to balance it with your personal life. The post-Covid period has witnessed a huge rise in entrepreneurship and the freelance industry. People became more aware than before, realizing the importance of e themselves and being independent. The freelance industry especially has seen a bigger boom as youngsters stepped into the industry to ace it with their skills.

Freelance means working for yourself, at any place, with the freedom to choose your time and work type. This is what attracted most people to kick-start their freelance journey. The ideal definition of freelancing showcased and displayed in the limelight is tempting and appealing. Once you get working in the industry, you will realize it is no less than any job, entrepreneurship, or business. You face ups and downs. At times you might not even lose clients. You may have to work day and night to finish off your tasks, meeting the deadlines, repurposed the drafts, and numerous changes required by your prospects.

“Work is worship” is what we all hear. We tend to assume that work is a typical 9-5 job, lavish corporate offices, or your own business. Work is work, no matter how small or big, and every work has hardships. Freelancing is another term used for freedom nowadays. Definitely, to unleash freedom, the obstacle in the way actually becomes your way, only when you are fair enough with yourself to push yourself up. Nothing looks the same when showcased. You have to step in and experience. These experiences make you bold enough to keep going throughout the journey to grow out, and that’s when you feel ‘easy’ is just meant for the display. What actually makes it easy is your willingness to work.

How to manage studies and work life as a student?

Life has seen a tremendous change in the past two years. Something that couldn’t even be imagined happened so suddenly within a fraction of a second, completely changing human life. No doubt the Covid-19 lead us more closer to the digital and techno world.

Not only working professionals but also students and non-professional individuals started adapting to the techno era. Slowly and gradually, laptops and mobiles have taken up a huge space in our lives with time and pace.

Especially as a student, these electronics have become a necessity as this is the only source to take the education further. Even students have taken up their responsibilities to upgrade themselves and level up their skills. Along with studies, they are now working individuals too. Many of them are either working interns and managing their studies or working upon their start-up along with studies.

At times managing both of them in a single go becomes difficult, and students feel stressed. This tends to reduce the working capacity mentally as well as physically. To avoid mental breakdowns and get rid of stressful situations, here are a few tips and tricks that will benefit the students. This will not only help them to balance their work-life and studies simultaneously but also help them to level up their productivity.

1) Exercise – Regular exercise, even if practiced daily for 20 minutes, will totally help get energized and boost their minds.
2) You can practice meditation and journaling. These are the proven methods to keep yourself cool and calm.
3) Take short walks in the sun. Studies show that Vitamin D increases a positive and focused mood.
4) Laugh, smile, and spend time with family and friends.
5) Take breaks – A whole day just work will reduce your creativity. Thus take short naps and breaks in between.
6) Practice self-talk and self discussion. Speak positive affirmations to yourself- “this too shall pass” or “I can handle this.”
7) Ask for help – The most underrated yet important thing that students ignore is asking for help. They feel this might make them feel inferior or small, they will be made fun of, and people will laugh at them if they approach people for help. But the truth is when you ask someone for help, it builds up your community and networking. People feel trustworthy and happy that you asked them out!

Remember, anything can be solved when we communicated and speak. Along with work and studies, proper mental health is important. Mental well-being affects a person emotionally and physically as well. Thus, these easy peasy and go-to tricks will help students be calm, focused, peaceful, and relaxed, enabling them to perform well in academics and work life.

Doctors: The Front Line Warriors

We all know, that why our government is forcing us to live in the home, this is due to pandemic COVID 19 which is been faced by the world and right now our doctors are working 24 hours as a front line warrior against coronavirus and helping our government and country to fight against this crisis. In return, many people are contributing their warm wishes and thanking the doctors through different gestures. A few times each month we all clap at the same time beat the utensils, or light a Diya outside our balcony a gesture that shows how grateful we are. These actions are counted under giving respect to the doctors of our country who in this situation stays away from their family and spends most of their time fighting for a corona patient. In our country doctors are treated as ‘devta’ or ‘messenger of God’ as they are considered the giver of life to the people. Right now there are around 12, 41,687 cases and it is a matter of honour that out of this 7, 84,460 people recovered and all this could happen because of the doctors and medical staff who are working hard to save everyone without discriminating between any gender or caste. They are doing their best to help patients recover as fast as possible. Still, there are some people who are acting rudely and behaving cruelly towards the doctors. According to the Indian Medical Association (IMA), 75% doctor face violence once in his life and in ongoing COVID 19, these cases are increasing day by day. Even after so much of hard work, the doctors are still facing harassment. For instance, whenever the medical staff or doctors go to the house of the patients, people throw stones on them and treat them like a “street dog” due to which recently many doctors started striking as they all were facing humiliations and violence in their everyday life. Do you know what is the reason behind this? This is all happening because of a bunch of fake news we are sharing on social media regarding the doctors and regarding the religious discrimination which is being allegedly carried out by doctors. This, however, in reality, has not been proven till this day.

Every day we get to listen about cases of violence and for some time we feel bad for a doctor, but the next day again is a normal day. The maltreatment of doctors is partly our fault as we should also take care of a doctor who is far away from their family, who are not even getting proper sleep, they are taking care of our family members so that one day they may able to recover. Now its high time for us to protect the front line soldiers (doctors). We can help them by spreading the love towards them through social media, by informing people about the importance of doctors in today’s scenario, and also make people aware of the fact that if doctors will not be there then a country will be in trouble. Before attempting any untoward act, we should always think about their families because doctors are taking care of our family members.
