5 Tips for Working from HomePosted on 15th January 2021 in News
As the pandemic continues, more and more people are working from home. While it’s definitely a safer option at the moment for everyone’s health, working from home presents its own set of challenges. Since temporarily closing our office doors, we’ve decided to take a look at some of the ways you can make working from home that bit easier.
Set up a dedicated workspace
One of the biggest challenges of working from home is finding somewhere to work that allows you to do your job to the best of your ability. Set up a workspace somewhere in your home that you know you’ll have peace and quiet, and a good internet connection!
Don’t forget to take a break
When you’re sitting at home all day, taking a break can sometimes feel pointless. It’s important to remember that even though you’re not at the office, you are still working. Don’t forget to take some time away from your desk through the day, whether it be on your lunch break or if you fancy a cup of tea, allow yourself a few minutes to recharge.
Remember when you’re off the clock
When you have all the tools you need to do your job sitting in front of you, it can be easy to fall into a pattern of never really finishing work. Finishing time comes and goes and sometimes you still find yourself working away into the night. It’s important to remember to end your working day at the same time as you normally would. If you sit on your laptop until 10pm every night, it won’t be long until you burn yourself out.
When you’re working from home it becomes all to easy to never leave home. Don’t forget to go outside and take in the fresh air! Even if it’s just for 15 minutes to take the dog a quick walk on your lunch break, you’ll feel better for it for the rest of the day.
Don’t be too hard on yourself
This is unknown territory for most of the country – no longer being in an office environment and being stuck in your house most of the day can be hard for a lot of people. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself, you’re only human and it’ll take a while to adjust. Just try your best and go from there.
