Here is 9 Work From Home tips that you NEED to hear 📣
⚡️Maintain Regular Working Hours
Set a schedule and stick to it!
Having clear guidelines for when to work and when to call it a day helps many remote workers maintain work-life balance.
⚡️Create a Morning Routine
Deciding you’ll sit down at your desk and start work at a certain time is one thing. Creating a routine that gets you into the chair is another!
It might be as simple as making a cup of coffee before you tackle your to-do list.
If you work for an organisation, know the policy on break times and take them.
If you’re self-employed, give yourself adequate time during the day to walk away from the computer screen and phone.
⚡️Make an Effort to Leave Home
You need to get moving and to get some fresh air and natural light! ☀️
Ideally, step outside for at least a short while before, during, and after your working hours.
⚡️Create a Dedicated Office Space
Dedicate a desk or table space that will be used only for work.
For example, when your laptop is hooked up to the monitor and external keyboard, it’s work time. When it’s on your lap, that’s personal time.
⚡️Socialise With Colleagues
Working from home can be isolating!
Figure out how much interaction you need to feel connected and included.
Tell everyone who needs to know about your schedule and availability often. Don’t assume they’ll remember.
When you finish a project or important task, say so. Over-communicating doesn’t necessarily mean you have to write a five-paragraph essay to explain your every move, but it does mean repeating yourself.
⚡️Remember and Take Advantage of Your Perks
When I working in an office full-time, the commute can be long! Use your additional time to do something you enjoy 🥰
⚡️Don’t Be Too Hard on Yourself
Successful remote employees have a reputation for being extremely disciplined. After all, it takes serious focus to do any full-time job from an unconventional space.
And remember to cut yourself some slack 👀
