Though some people are already counting down to fall, there’s still plenty of summer days left to enjoy. If you have a Chevy Colorado or a Silverado, it’s easy to transform your truck bed to enhance your summer fun. Here are some simple ways to do that.
Truck Bed Picnic
Take a meal outdoors with your loved ones while avoiding sitting directly in the grass. All you need to bring are some pillows, a blanket, and your favorite homemade or takeout food.
Truck Bed Movie Night
You don’t have to go to a drive-in to catch a movie in your truck. Grab a laptop or a tablet and watch your favorite movies in the bed of your truck. All you need to do is blow up an air mattress that fits, get some blankets and pillows, and lay back and watch. And pack some movie snacks and drinks in case you have the munchies.
Truck Bed Camping
Thanks to Chevy technology and towing capabilities, you might have already used your truck for camping. Consider truck bed camping in your backyard or driveway, to adhere to social distancing standards while still having a delightful night outside of the house.

As part of social distancing and
government guidelines for safety, many parents suddenly find themselves
adapting to a work-from-home lifestyle. While working around your children can
be rewarding in some ways, it also makes getting work done more challenging.
Working from home with kids can be tough, but you can take a few steps to make
sure you’re staying productive.
Establish a home office
A good general rule for working
from home is setting up a dedicated workspace within the house. Not only does
this make work-life balance easier to achieve, but it helps give your kids
boundaries to let them know when you’re off limits. Lay down ground rules about
what’s appropriate when you’re in the office and make sure your kids stick to
them. Have them knock when the door’s closed or even ask them to slip notes
under the door so you can deal with whatever questions or problems they have
after you’re done with an important task.
Build a schedule
You and your kids both need
stimulation, so working small breaks into your schedule will help you create a
rhythm and keep everyone happy. Having a dedicated 15-minute block for a walk
around the neighborhood or planning to have lunch at the same time every day
creates a nice sense of stability that also gives you and the kids something to
look forward to. What’s more, taking periodic breaks to get up and walk around
will help you stay focus by clearing out the cobwebs when the day gets
These are just some of the many ways that you can boost your productivity and keep your kids satisfied while working from home. Working from home with kids can be challenging, but the reward of being around your little people more than you’re used to is well worth the adjustment. The family at Ken Nelson Chevrolet in Dixon, IL, hopes that you and your family are staying safe in these tough times.
