The new reality. That is the word that we all have been hearing since the outbreak of Covid-19 in March 2020. Some of us have been able to adapt to this new phase of our lives while others are yet to figure things out. The reality is that whether we like it or not, the way the world functions has changed. In this changed lifestyle, we not only have to shift our mental state of functioning but also reassign our physical spaces.
If you are an employee who has been working from home, you must have realized that your home is not adequately set up for office work. You may have also faced challenges of working with another person in the same room or having a tough time finding the right cozy spot for your computer.
If you are a parent, you would have realized that your kids’ online classes are not at all like the ones they are used to when they attend school or university. They have to set themselves up in a neat corner at home and ensure there is silence around them.
Whatever may be the case, one thing is for sure that, our physical spaces seem to have shrunk. When at the office or at school, there is a dedicated space for individuals to sit and keep their items. At home, either you are always rearranging things to make more space or sharing your space with other family members.
Deciding these aspects of lives can take a toll on your mental health. Instead of spending time and energy on decluttering your home, the more efficient option is to choose a self storage space. One thing is for sure – Covid-19 is not going away anytime soon and our new realities are here to stay. Given the circumstances we are under, the best way to deal with it is to ensure there is peace of mind at home, which helps in improving productivity as well.
What exactly is a Self Storage?
The concept of self storage is to reclaim your personal space with the help of decluttering mechanisms. Whether it is your household item or business utilities, Self Storage allows you to safely store items that you do not regularly use in a dedicated room.
At Self Storage India, we have warehouses in Noida and Gurugram that are easy to book and convenient to use.
As Covid-19 has pushed our lives to the edges, we need to look at restructuring our homes to ensure maximum productivity for all those engaged in various activities. This is where Self Storage India can help. As the first to bring this concept to India, we know how difficult life can get when there’s not enough physical space. And we are here to help!
Why should you choose Self Storage during Covid-19?
It is quite likely that you have never heard of Self Storage, but with the new lives that we are leading, self storage will play a key role in shaping our future lives. The home needs office space for those working from home. There needs to be a place for kids to have their online classes. If your home is smaller, fitting all this in limited space is likely to drive you to your wits’ end.
Instead of succumbing to pressure, what you can do is identify areas that you can clear up and things that you do not frequently use at home. Just as how you have important files near you and other things inside a shelf, you can keep items you frequently use at home and those that are important but not necessarily needed so often at the self storage warehouse.
This decluttering will create more space so that you can work and study comfortably from your home while your items stay secure at our warehouses. With the power of self storage, you can convert your rooms into multi-functional areas. It will also lead you to realize that your homes can be set up differently and managed more efficiently.
How Covid-19 can help you declutter your homes?
Even though Covid-19 is a menace for most of us, and we are doing our best to stay away from the virus, looking at it from a positive lens will work in our favor. Think of how this time at home has helped you to understand your home spaces better.
Firstly, start by figuring out the needs of your home members. Who are the ones working from home and the ones studying at home? What are their requirements? Identify how much physical space is required by each person and how much time as well. When you understand these aspects, you can allocate spaces and find out new spaces.
It is crucial that you first do this so that you will know who requires what at what time. It also helps you identify whether there will be any overlap with another person’s work or study time. After all, everyone wants to avoid incidents where family members turn up behind you when you are on an important business meeting or a lecture online.
Next, you need to find out what each of the members needs on a daily basis and how much space is needed for them. Simultaneously, find out what are the things that are not in use for long periods of time and make a list of those items.
Are there too many books in a corner? Do you have a lot of party wear that you may not need in the coming months due to Covid-19 restrictions? Is there furniture or decorative items used for guests that you may not be using in the near future? The answers to questions like these will help you understand what things are taking up unnecessary space at home.
Once this is done, you’re ready to ship your things off to Self Storage India’s warehouse.
How to get a Self Storage Unit
Unless scientists find out a vaccine, we are all likely to be under shelter-at-home rules. Even as India’s lockdown is over and people have been allowed to go out, the fear of the virus will hold us back. So, packing your unused items to our Self Storage warehouse will bring you relief.
If you have large items to store, then you can choose one of our private rooms. If the items are fewer and confidential (such as documents), you can pick our secure utility lockers. These sturdy cabinets are made of steel and can store up to 30 business files.
There is no need to worry about your belongings as we have some beneficial services for our customers, such as:
- 24-hour video surveillance
- Monthly pest control
- Regular cleaning of all areas
- Professional staff on site
While the pandemic continues to rage, life must go on. So, it is necessary that we make changes to our lifestyles until we are through this phase. Covid-19 came as a shocker to everyone. But, our work calls us, and education needs to be completed. Businesses still need to continue working, especially for essential services.
Though working from home has reduced people’s travel time, it has increased working hours. When you are short on time, doesn’t it make sense to make sensible decisions regarding self storage?
