Has your workplace made the switch to remote work? Experiencing a change in your regular routine can be jarring. However, you can make your work from home journey breezy by sticking to good daily practices. Here are some tips on how to make working remotely work for you here at The Flatiron District!
Create Space for Your Home Office
Now that your cubicle is out of the picture, it’s time to spruce things up here at home. Creating a dedicated home office space prevents you from the distracting qualities of working in bed (don’t fall for the trap). Another good way to organize your office space to best stay on task? Planting your desk by a window for a good dose of sunshine! Check out this list for more suggestions creating a workstation in your apartment.
Have a Set Schedule While Working From Home
When you’re working remotely, it’s important not to lose track of your daily routine. While you may have experienced a change in your workplace, keeping a set schedule while working from home will increase your sense of structure. Keep up with healthy activities like waking up at the same time every day and getting dressed for work whether or not you leave the house. That way, you continue to stay motivated on your tasks!
Remote Work With Regular Breaks
Many may find themselves taking on too much responsibility with added time in the day. Taking breaks when needed will make working remotely much smoother sailing. Always schedule in a lunch hour into your day to break from the grind and to refuel your body. Consider punctuating your flow with some strengthening yoga poses. Working on your computer more often? Make sure you’re sticking to the 20-20-20 rule to prevent eye strain from your screen.
Once you fall into a new groove, the work from home experience might even be preferred to the ole office! How are you planning on handling your home office work? Let us know in the comments!
