Tips to help you work from home

Your new work from home situation may not be exactly what you had in mind. It definitely takes time to get used to the new normal, so cut yourself some slack. Or maybe you’ve been working from home for a while now and are already adjusted. Self-isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic presents new challenges, but along with challenges lies the opportunity for new perspectives to emerge.

Below are a few tips to help you work from home and be more productive:

  • Designate a workspace. Sitting down in your designated workspace sends a signal to your brain that it’s time to focus.
  • Get ready for the day. Take the time to go about your normal routine in the morning. Maybe it’s just taking a shower and putting on a clean pair of clothes (even if they’re not your typical professional attire)
  • Set your schedule. Maybe it’s a to-do list in writing or it could be a digital list on your computer, but be sure to have a plan of attack for each day.
  • Take five. Stretching or moving your body enables you to refresh and can increase productivity.
    Create an eating plan. Instead of working until you’re starved and make poor choices, plan out your snacks and lunches ahead. This will be beneficial in saving time and hopefully prevent you from putting on the dreaded “Quarantine 15” ;)
  • Stay informed, not overwhelmed. Instead of reading the news all day, set a few periods of time aside to get informed.
  • Practice self-care. In addition to making sure your work gets done, take care of your mental and physical health.

Try to make the most of your time from home. Chances are, if employees are just as productive, working from home may become more prevalent in businesses. Maybe that is something that excites you, or maybe you’re hoping that’s not the case; but either way, if something like this should ever happen again, we’ll all be more than prepared.

Remember, we’re all in this together. Be safe!
