Takin’ Care of Business with Sammie’s Top Tunes

Remember when you thought 2020 would be your year?  Fast forward to April – Zoom is your new best friend, cat documentaries are your main source of entertainment and you haven’t seen a pair of jeans in at least 5 weeks.  If you were ahead of the times and your bathrobe has always been a wardrobe staple, now is your time to shine!  Hey, quarantine, but make it fashion.

In addition to your new teaching gig, maintaining your day job with distractions from your furry friends and family could pose as a challenge.  You’re probably asking yourself; but, how can I increase productivity and minimize disruption when my desk is a couch?  Spoiler alert, with the ultimate feel-good playlist.

Whether you’re working from home temporarily or regularly, music is sure to cure the doom and gloom you may be experiencing.  Especially curated for each day of the work week, I’m sharing my top tunes to stay calm, inspired, focused, and sane while working from home.
