Working from home for multiple weeks could be stressful for some people. But with the recent COVID-19 pandemic, this is the new normal. Most of the companies are giving the option to their employees to work from home indefinitely.
Follow the below tips for working from home to be productive while maintaining your sanity.
- Morning Routine
- Dedicated Workplace
- Maintain a Schedule
- Schedule Breaks
- Workout Routine
- Leave Home
1. Morning Routine
Start your day on a positive note by getting dressed, walking back and forth in your living room, morning meditation, and eating healthy breakfast.
2. Dedicated Workplace
You will be more productive if you sit on a dedicated chair and table (with your office setup) rather than a couch or a bed. Changing your workplace once a week (probably on a Wednesday) could help you stay motivated. Amazon offers a few great standing desks on their website.
3. Maintain a Schedule
Plan your day in the morning by writing the important tasks that you want to complete that day.
4. Schedule Breaks
Take lunch and coffee breaks as you would do in an office environment.
5. Workout Routine
Maintain your workout routine. The best part about working from home is that you are flexible to schedule your workout based on your mood.
6. Leave Home
Go out for a walk once a day. Along with physical exercise, a walk could help with boosting your energy and mood.
Send a hello note to your team members. Speaking with people on the phone could add a little laughter and at the same time help you stay connected with the latest news at your workplace.
Since people are not aware of your working hours so make sure your calendar is updated. Also, send a note to your stakeholders with your working hours (once a week) so that they know the right time to connect with you.
