5 Tips for Working From Home
There are some great benefits to working from home, but there are also some drawbacks. For instance, it can be hard to separate your work from your personal life. It’s important to have a designated workspace that isn’t cluttered with personal items. It’s also beneficial to have a designated break space that isn’t part of your workspace.
One trick I’ve learned is to set an alarm for every half hour. where the alarm sounds, I have to stop what I’m doing and focus on work. It can be really easy to turn off your alarms but I’ve found they’re the only way I can stay productive where I’m working from home.
Here are five tips that might help you create a work-life balance.
- Get Away from your desk. Sometimes, using your computer to get things done can make you forget about everything else. So get away from your desk, go outdoors, take a walk, exercise or find some other physical activity that can make you feel better.
- Wake up Earlier. If you are the type of person who needs to see the sun to get out of bed, then set your alarm clock 30 minutes earlier. Wake up earlier and do the things you want to do.
- Have a 30 Minute Break. Have a 30-minute break after working for about two hours. Get away from your computer and take a break. Have a snack, go for a walk or read a book.
- Find a Quiet Place. Make time for yourself and spend it in a place where you can relax and be free from distractions.
- Prioritize Your Tasks. Make a list of things you need to do and prioritize them. If you have a lot of tasks to complete and you think you won’t finish them in time, then take a break and then get back to work.
