Many of us will not be used to this, so working from home is relatively new and something we can grow into. In order to help you, SKEPP has 5 tips that help you with working from home productively.
Create a workplace
First of all, it is important that you create your own workplace at home. This is the place where you are always working while you are working from home. Make sure that you do not use this specific place for any other activities, such as eating or watching television. In addition, create a workplace with ergonomic friendly office furniture. Think of an adjustable desk and an ergonomic office chair. Besides, you could add a drawer unit so that there will be no clutter in the house.
Stick to your to-do list
Start every day by creating a to-do list or make it the day before. In this way, you know exactly what you have to do. In case you are a morning person, it might be an idea to start with the most important tasks. For most people, the concentration level will weaken during the day so the end of the day can be better used to finish minor tasks.
Communicate with your colleagues
Make sure that everybody in a team knows what is going on within the company and consult with your colleagues as you would normally do. The problem of physical distance can be remedied by using internet chats, calling each other, or sending an email. In this way, everyone can be informed easily and the work can be well coordinated.
Keep your morning routine
It is really tempting to stay in bed a bit longer, but you just have to work. By following your regular morning routine, you do not get the feeling of a vacation. Set your alarm at the same time as you are used to and get ready for work. A positive point of working from home is that you have no travel time, the time left can be used for other activities, for example, the household tasks or to spend it with family.
Set fixed times
When you are working at the office, most of the time there are set the times for coffee and lunch breaks. Keep these times for your breaks at home as well. In this way, you will keep the same rhythm during your workday. Make sure to put your laptop away during these breaks so that you can really clear your mind and continue working productively after you return from your break.
Start successfully working from home!
All in all, SKEPP advises you to keep the structure in your days. Create a workplace, finish your to-do lists, communicate with your colleagues, and keep a routine. This will help you to stay productive, energized, and motivated during the day. If you still need some assistance in creating your own workplace at home, SKEPP will help you with it!
