Are you working from home? You are certainly not alone! In fact, everyone from your office is also working from home. That means whatever struggles you have they are being shared. If this is the first time that you are working from home along with the family in the rest of the house, then you need to be proactive in finding ways to make it all work for you. These tips can help:
Create a Schedule
To help keep you focused on the tasks from your job it is helpful to set definitive schedule. Obviously, there will be flexibility but if you were used to working from 9 to 5 at the office, then you should continue to work within those same boundaries. That means waking up and going to bed at the same time. It also means performing the same morning rituals that you always do to get ready for work including getting dressed. Working in your pajamas might seem easy but it will just reinforce the sense that you’re on a break when in reality you still have to get the job done.
Creating a schedule also means logging off at the end of the day. Your coworkers and managers should know that at a certain point you are going off the grid and focusing on your family. You don’t want to fall into the trap of being available around the clock just because your home.
Make Daily Priorities
Each day you have priorities to get accomplished. You need to communicate with your family about those priorities so that they know not to disturb you during certain hours of your workday. The best signal to establish for them is when you are away from the desk. That tells them that you are done for the moment and can help them with what they are working on.
