    Beat the dark and stay productive during load shedding

    Due to permanent load shedding, South Africans have reached a point where everyone is literally fed up with being constantly left in the dark.  And, over the past year, we have gone from wearing masks to using thermos flasks.  Yet, despite growing frustrations and exacerbating disruptions caused by recurring power outages on a daily basis; with no sign of relief in sight, the reality is that load shedding has now become a permanent feature of the South African way of life.

    Especially in a world driven by technology, and with a consistent loss of power often several times a day, it is difficult to cope when you are trying your best to get your work done.  But, power loss doesn’t always have to mean a total loss of productivity or that one needs to shut one’s doors.   Alternatives can be put in place to beat the hours of darkness and there are ways to use dark downtime constructively.
