When the shelter in place order was put out across the state many folks made the transition to working from home. Most of those same folks probably have had some experience with working at home even if it’s just meant answering the occasional business email over the weekend. But it is quite different now that the entire 9-to-5 routine has to be conducted at home. This might require some adjustments. Here are some good ideas to make your working from home a productive time:
Stay In Touch With Your Coworkers
You obviously be staying in touch with your coworkers with regard to completing assignments. However, you shouldn’t discount the benefits of the “coffee break” chats. You should find a way to touch bases with some of your coworkers daily. These chats don’t have to be work related. It can be the same kind of social interaction you engaged in while popping into someone’s office or cubicle. It’s vital that you maintain those contacts and foster that supportive network.
Continue to Dress for Work
Every one of us is probably going to be experiencing several “bad hair days” For the foreseeable future until all the salons and barbershops are open again. When working from home you should still try to dress professionally especially if you are going to be involved in any kind of videoconferencing. Obviously, you don’t need to wear a suit to sit at your desk at home but you also shouldn’t work in your pajamas. Going through the same morning rituals to prepare for work can help provide a much-needed sense of normalcy.
Before the shutdown, you might never have used videoconferencing from your home before. Now is the perfect time to take advantage of this technology. First, you want to make sure you have your camera and audio set up properly. That also means checking your background. If you feel awkward being on video, then maybe you can start to practice by chatting with friends and family members until you feel comfortable. Again, everyone is going through the exact same periods and the more you use video chatting the more confident you will become.
Keep Up with The House Work
Working from home might seem like you don’t get a break from your surroundings. That is why it is important to keep up with the housework. It’s you don’t want to leave your workspace and go into mountains of clutter and rubbish. Don’t let any of that pile up. In fact, you may want to do a thorough spring cleaning of the entire home and pull aside all of those items that you could toss out just to make more room.
