Making the transition to working from an office to working from home can seem daunting. Here are some tips to help make that change a success:
Get up and get ready for the day
Create a routine, get out of sleep clothes and get dressed for the day and will help get the day started.
Create a designated workspace
If possible, work from a specific place in your home away from your bedroom. Even the smallest distance helps create a separation from work and play.
It’s important for it to be create a peaceful and functional workspace. Remove as many distractions as possible and add nice vibes to your workspace such a pictures, fragrant candle or a plant.
Set working hours
It is important to set working hours and communicating those to your family and helps reduce random interruptions during those times.
Once you get the hang of working from home it can be easy to forget to take breaks. Get up and make lunch, drink some coffee or tea, meditate, take a walk or listen to your favorite podcast. We recommend listening to Resilient Forward.
If you work on teams or on a project, it is important to keep in touch with your colleagues, invest in a good microphone and camera if you can they make your conference calls and virtual meetings sounding clear and looking good.
End your day
Step away from your home office and end your workday. Treat yourself and have a cocktail, watch your favorite TV show or spend time with your family. Creating the separation from work and play can help reduce stress and not think about work for the rest of the evening.
