Our Tips On Working From Home
Working from home is awesome, right up until the cat walks through your keyboard when you are writing an email, your neighbor, who you can only assume is building a time machine, starts firing up all sorts of power tools and noisy machinery across the street.
The pandemic has caused remote work to become a necessity instead of a luxury for many people so we are sharing with you some tips to a more peaceful and productive home work.
1) Get Dressed
Don't work with your pajamas still on!
Get up, take a shower, get dressed, if you don't get ready for your day, your day will never start.
2) Create Your Workspace
Dedicate a space as your home office.
The area does not need to be fancy! But allow sufficient room to perform your tasks.
3) Create A Morning Routine
What indicates you're about to work? It might be making your morning cup of coffee.
A routine can be more powerful than a clock at helping you get started each day.
4) Keep Regular Hours
Set a schedule and stick to it... most of the time.
Having clear guidelines for when to work helps you maintain work-life balance.
5) Take Breaks In Their Entirety
Give yourself adequate time during the day to keep away from the computer screen and phone, and don't stay connected during breaks, especially your lunch hour.
Stay connected with your manager and colleagues; even a simple group chat to discuss and joke from time to time can be enough to restore humanity to online work.
7) Do Something That You Enjoy
There are always creative things that we can do at home, after work; read a book, learn a new language, start a new hobby, cook, play table games, practice yoga, print your holiday pictures, just take a care of yourself.
8) Stay Positive
It's easy to feel some loneliness when working alone all day.
Remember that we're all in the same situation.
You're Not Alone.
