Working from Home has become our new normal While there have been plenty of industries that have allowed employees to work from home for quite some time, COVID has created a unique situation where many more companies are now requiring employees to work from home. Working from home has some pretty great perks, but it can come with some unintended consequences. A few things to consider if you are still working from home:
Set “work hours” – Instead of working here and there throughout your day such as checking emails from your phone while you take the dog for a walk or folding clothes while you are on a conference call, create a work schedule and keep it separate from your home life. This will help to create a better work/life balance.
Take a shower! – Even though it is so nice and saves a ton of time to not get ready for the day, taking a shower and getting dressed will set you into work mode.
Create a separate space for work – While not all of us have a home office, there are still ways to create an area designated for work. Find a small table and set it up next to an outlet with a comfy chair, external monitor, a few inspiring quotes, a cup with pens, highlighters and pencils and a desk lamp. Having a comfortable place to work will set your tone for the day.
Take breaks – Just like you would take a break at the office, make sure to step away for a quick walk and eat lunch away from your desk.
