3 Ways to Make Working from Home Better
There’s a lot to be said about having the opportunity to work from home, but it’s important you take a few steps to make sure you're at your best.
#1 | Establish a work zone
One of the best ways to make sure you’re productive while working at home is to create a designated workspace. Ideally, this would be somewhere you won’t be interrupted frequently. Setting up at the kitchen table or on your bed will impact your focus for a multitude of reasons.
#2 | Structure, structure, structure
As human beings, we are creatures of habit. We’re most productive when we have some structure in our lives. Working from home can make that extremely difficult, which is why it’s vital you establish a routine for working remotely. For example, it’s helpful to stick to a timeline with things like the time you wake up, when you eat lunch, when you work out, etc.
In general, we suggest you do your best to maintain as many old routines as possible to help you work through this “new normal.”
#3 | Take a break
When working from home people may often feel guilty and neglect to take breaks. While we completely understand the feeling, it doesn’t change the fact that you are entitled to take a break. Plus, taking a break helps you maintain a higher level of productivity.
