As many of us begin the journey of working from home, it can be hard to figure out how to handle the new change and stay focused. With this guide, you’ll be able to set up shop easily and continue to be the same productive worker you are in the office.
It’s important to choose a work space that is quiet and free from distractions. However, instead of choosing that crowded storage room to set up your workplace in, try choosing a room with plenty of sunlight, decor and plants. This environment will help alleviate stress and make you feel more comfortable. If it helps, you can also play relaxing music, preferably without words, to help you stay focused throughout the day.
Before you start working, be sure to ask any family members and friends not to disturb you during work hours. Unfortunately, this includes our furry friends and sweet children too, if possible, they should not be in the same room as you. If you live in a loud area, such as the city, it may be important to invest in ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones.
Set a Routine
Sticking to a schedule is one of the top ways to stay productive while working from home. You should plan to wake up at the same time every morning, get ready as if you were going to the office and eat a good breakfast. When you take your break, be sure to leave your work space. This will help your brain associate your desk with work and keep you on track. You should also have a list of tasks you plan to complete that day and every week.
