Tips for working from home

I have seen that many have been frustrated in this quarantine. Especially those who are not used to working at home, something that many companies have implemented to improve the quality of life of their employees is being perceived as a stressor in this situation.

For those who have online business, what better than to implement it now, so I share a few tips.

1. Get dressed! Don't work on your bed! Up up!

Get ready in the morning. Get dressed, eat breakfast and start working. Thus, you will have completely eliminated the dream and you will be fully prepared for the day. Not only will it improve your mental state, but it will prepare you psychologically to start working.

The style of clothing you wear to work depends on the type of person you are and the nature of the job you have. Some people find that dressing formally is helpful and appropriate if they need to make video calls.

Likewise, changing your work clothes when business hours are over - even if you're at home - helps your brain understand that the day is over.

2. Set limits, keep a defined schedule

Start your day at the same time that you would normally arrive at the office or workplace, and end your day at the same time.

If there are other people in the house, it is essential to find a space where you work without distractions.

3. Make your workspace friendly

Create a workspace in your home. Avoid working on the couch and being around distractions like television.

It is time to create your own office, it can be in a corner of your house, attached to a window, or in the library, which is fun and you are comfortable, remember that it is where you spend most of the day.

If possible, this is just the place for your work, you will be more productive and help you focus.

4. Establish a daily schedule

The best thing is that, before starting work, you plan everything you need to do during that day. Thus, you will have a clear day ahead and avoid distractions.

Do not get distracted. During your working hours you are working so do not take advantage of the time to do housework or go shopping.

It is also recommended that you notify your family members so that they do not distract you while you are working.

5. Change of scenery, take regular breaks

It is important to take regular breaks, get up from your desk, stretch and move like you would in an office. Scientific studies found that short breaks during the day are more beneficial than less frequent but longer breaks.

Many remote workers recommend the Pomodoro technique, a time management method that breaks your workday into 25-minute blocks. Each period is followed by a five minute break.

Another tip, when you spend the day working on your own, calling people and having a conversation can be much more stimulating and productive than an email chain.

This will help you undo your mental blocks and give you a new set of eyes for whatever task you're doing.

It is good to have a routine when you work from home, I encourage you to try these humble tips, so that you grow in productivity and that your organization time at home is as bearable as possible. It is the right opportunity to demonstrate that teleworking is viable, even in areas where many have not considered it.

Much encouragement at this time and you know, we read you, write us!
