Whether you have a dedicated home office or are simply setting up shop at the kitchen table, establishing a designated workspace tells your brain that you’re in the place where you do work productively.
When you work in an office, the daily routine of getting ready and commuting helps your brain get ready for the day. When you’re working remotely, you can create “start the day” triggers that get your mind ready for work in a similar way, like exercising, showering and getting dressed like you're going to work.
Remote work requires a schedule much like a typical office job, except you’re the one holding yourself accountable. A simple daily to-do list can do wonders for keeping you organized, motivated, and productive as you work from home.
When working from home, reducing distractions will help you maintain focus. Playing music in the background can be a good motivator, especially if it helps spark creativity, but keep the volume low, so you remain in the workflow. If you prefer background noise, sites like Coffitivity will replicate the ambiance of a coffee-house. Take a break from the news, allowing yourself to focus on the job at hand.
Working from home might seem like a solo experience, but it usually still involves interacting with others, whether it’s meeting with your team, getting assignments, making decisions, or giving and receiving feedback. It’s important to set up methods for collaboration and social interaction while you work remotely. There are any number of videoconferencing apps that allow you to work face-to-face while still keeping your distance.
It can be easy to get so focused on your work as a telecommuter that you avoid breaks altogether. Make sure you are taking periodic breaks to relax and recharge. Rather than checking social media, however, use your breaks to step away from your desk. Go for a short walk outside, stretch, or spend time with others who might also be in the house.
In addition to being stylish and comfortable, your office furniture also needs to be functional, allowing you and your employees the best possible chance for success.
