As we continue to face this global pandemic, coronavirus, many of us have joined the “work-from-home” force. Globally, countless businesses are doing their part to flatten the curve by supporting their employees to work from home.
If you are new to working remotely, these tips can help you stay productive and maintain a good work- life balance, as you continue to navigate this new normal as a business owner:
1. Maintain Regular Hours
Having clear guidelines for when to work and when to call it a day will help you maintain a work-life balance. Do your best to stick to your normal work hours. This will help ensure that you get your work done and stay on schedule.
2. Schedule Breaks
Set break times and take them. Give yourself adequate time during the day to walk away from the computer screen and phone. Make a conscious effort to get up and stretch or move around every so often to help you stay focused.
3. Keep a dedicated office space
It is important to separate your workspace from other spaces in your home. Set up your work area at a desk or dining room table where you can comfortably work from and not get distracted.
4. Maintain a Regular Routine
Even though you only have to walk into the other room to start your workday, try to still follow your normal routine. Give yourself time to perform your morning routine before sitting down to work. It is also a good idea to dress for work.
5. Avoid Multitasking
It is tempting to catch up on chores around the house. It is easy to be distracted and end up missing a phone call or forgetting to complete a task. Instead, consider using any extra time when you would normally be driving home to get that laundry started or wash the dishes.
