How to work from home, the right way

16 Apr

How to work from home, the right way

More and more people exercise their profession in the “home office”, at least in part, and not only in times of crisis. Working from home requires a plan. And a lot of discipline. Without a daily structure, the risk of losing concentration increases. Productivity suffers as a result, conflicts increase and dissatisfaction arises on all sides. This does not have to happen.

Start the day with your usual morning routine. It is best to get up at your usual time. Have breakfast, shower, get informed or do early morning sports – very important: Dress as if you were going to the office. This will help you switch to work mode.

Set up a workplace for yourself. It’s best to have a separate room where the door can be closed, especially if you have children or pets. Make sure you have good equipment such as an office chair, a stable table and ideally a monitor that you connect to your notebook. A fast and stable Internet connection is important, a headset increases the voice quality during web conferences, online tools are useful helpers. Now you are ready for productive work.

Set up a schedule. At what times do I work, when do I take breaks, when am I there for family? Set up an “out of office” message so that your colleagues know when you are not available. And also think about exercise and fresh air in your “home office”.

End the working day as you started it. Namely with a ritual, such as a to-do list for the next day. And enjoy what you have achieved during the day. This motivates you for future tasks. If you enjoy sports in the evening, you should do this at least four hours before going to bed. Otherwise, according to the latest studies, you risk finding it harder to fall asleep and sleep through the night. After all, if you have slept well, you enjoy your life.

“We have a common aim – we represent Swiss quality”

25 Apr

We would like to congratulate Javier Mendoza on 10 years of service in our warehousing department and thank him for his dedicated commitment.

“I’m in charge of warehousing – we store our textiles, down, feathers and packaging materials here……in fact everything we need. My job represents quality of life for me. I’m not just a number, I’m a person and part of a group with shared aims and interests – we represent Swiss quality. I really value my work colleagues. We work well together because everyone works in a team and we are very supportive of each other. We are all ready to make compromises to reach our common goal – happy and contented customers.

My direct supervisor always has time for me and he has a very flexible viewpoint when it comes to finding solutions to problems. In fact finding solutions is one of our greatest strengths – we see the problems but concentrate solely on finding practical solutions to them. This is quite simply the perfect job for me. I can even come to work by bike, something I’ve always wanted.”

From down to duvet – created with loving attention to detail.

18 Apr

We make every duvet as if it were our own, which means we start with impeccable hygiene.

This is of particular importance for bedding because the product and its user are in such close contact. Our skin touches the duvet for around seven hours a night, so constant hygiene controls are a must for our bedding.

A duvet can only feel good and be really cosy if we create the right mix of down and feathers. The different feather and down qualities are combined according to precise instructions in our mixing department. From there, we move on to the filling department where all the various duvet designs receive their fillings. If a duvet is to be quilted, it is taken to the quilting department while at the sewing station, all the textiles are cut and sewn. Once all these processes have been completed, the bedding moves along to the cutting room, where we check the duvets for weaving faults, cut them to the correct size and complete the production process.

Many duvets look the same from the outside. But what really tells them apart is the fill quality and covering materials. Whichever duvet you select, each duvet is created with loving attention to detail in true Swiss quality.

Why top athletes attach great importance to sleep

4 Apr

If you love sport and train a lot, then you know that the more intensively you train, the more sleep you need. Sleep doesn’t just help us to regenerate physically, it also has a decisive influence on our mental fitness. That’s because your cerebral cortex, which controls important basic mental functions like focus, speed of action, decision-making and your ability to concentrate, is active during sleep. If you get too little sleep, you notice the effects immediately – your basic functions are impaired, your performance reduced. Poor sleep quality or a lack of sleep increases your risk of illness and injuries, which also take longer to heal.

But getting enough sleep is just one part of the puzzle. You also need to sleep well. A great way to support the quality of your sleep is with a Climaactive down duvet  which uses active climate management and the ingenious Outlast concept to regulate climate throughout the night and create the perfect conditions for a deep and restful night’s sleep.

It’s you!

Spring lets her blue ribbon
Flutter in the breeze again;
Sweet, familiar scents
Drift with promise o’er the land.
Violets lie dreaming already,
Soon to be awakened.
—Listen, from afar the faint sound of a harp!
Spring, it is you!
I can hear you coming!
