How many times did you wish you could work at home while you were stuck in traffic on your way to work? Now, you’re getting that opportunity as shelter-in-place is becoming the new normal for everyone in California. This means making adjustments and redefining what your work day is going to look like. Here’s how to make working from home more productive:
No matter where you work, there is a social component to the job. You can to instantly share information with coworkers because you only have to go into their office or cubicle. Yes, you will be doing a lot more texting and emailing as you work from home but you shouldn’t stop there. You should also set up video chats whenever possible. As important as it is to keep communicating about work, you should also stay in touch on a personal level. Everyone is going through this shared experience and opening up about the challenges can be very therapeutic.
Establish the Work Zone
You might be doing a lot of your remote work from a laptop. That allows you flexibility where you can work. That means you can establish a work zone that is free from distractions. Working from the sofa while everyone else is watching TV is probably not a good choice. You also don’t want to stay in bed to work. It might seem easy but it can actually cause some back-pain problems. The best approach is to find a quiet corner of your home that you can work at without distractions.
Stick to a Routine
It is important that you maintain a work routine. Your deadlines are still in place and those need to be supported by a consistent work routine. You do have some flexibility when you can start and end your day because you now long have to factor in the commute. But you should keep to your work routine and that includes taking your lunch break along with the other breaks in the day.
Keep Out the Clutter
Focusing on work can sometimes mean the housework drops off. However, you might find that when you can take care of the housework, then you won’t feel that “pressure” when performing your work duties. You managed to get everything done before.
