Serena Williams Has Some Genius Tips On How To Stay Productive When Working from Home
You won’t be seeing professional tennis player Serena Williams, her husband Alexis Ohanian, and their daughter Olympia out and about these days because they decided to stay at home and self-quarantine for six weeks. But despite the temporary hiatus, the athlete will not be restless and will remain productive in the comfort of her home.
The tennis star took to Instagram to reveal that she would be taking this opportunity to spring clean, cook, do makeup tutorials, and focus on her family, all of which might be documented via her social media. Fans of the 38-year-old, however, would not be surprised to hear about her productivity – a trait she has always practiced even before this global pandemic wreaked havoc.
At 14, she began carving a name in the professional tennis industry and in more than 20 years in the field, she has amassed 23 Grand Slam titles, making her one of the most successful athletes of her generation. Serena has also managed to keep herself fit while juggling the sport and her family.
She gave birth to her first bundle of joy, Olympia, whom she shares with Reddit founder Alexis, in 2017. On top of raising a child, Serena also has an eponymous clothing line – in short, she has a lot on her plate, but she definitely knows how to remain efficient, here’s how she does it:
One of the things that make Serena productive is by shutting her brain off. Sometimes, when things become too overwhelming for the multi-hyphenate celebrity and she finds it hard to focus on a task, she zones out and tries not to think about anything.
Yes, it may sound like you’re defeating the purpose but it can actually make you feel more relaxed, focused, and energized! It doesn’t have to eat a chunk of your time and as Serena had pointed out, it can be done through various activities.
She meditates or watches funny shows or films just to take her mind off of work. At times, Serena just looks at her daughter and instead of focusing on what needs to be accomplished, she lets herself get lost in the precious moment.
Apart from resting her mind, Serena also makes it a point to stay hydrated even when she is not training. In fact, she gulps on a gallon per day – trivia: adults are advised to drink an average of 8 glasses (about 2 liters) of water a day.
Plus, studies have shown that dehydration can cause fatigue, whereas being hydrated can give you better skin and improved focus.
