Some Helpful Tips for Working From Home

May 11, 2020
So, you're now tasked to work from home. You might think it's easy, right? That there's little to no difference between working in the office to working from inside your own house. Well. get ready to face the truth! Because after a couple of days, probably after a whole week, you'll realize that working from home isn't as easy as you initially thought it was. You're more used to relaxing and resting at home. Now you have to work in it too? Well, if you're having trouble doing it, here are some tips that will undoubtedly help!

Some Helpful Tips for Working From Home

 

Check Your Internet

Before you even begin, check if your wifi is strong enough to handle a full workday. Make sure that your system is not one that often crashes or disconnects, else it will hinder your work process substantially. Also, it won't hurt to have a back-up as well. It doesn't have to be a whole other wifi system altogether. It can simply be a mobile wifi unit that you can quickly connect to once the main one at home crashes and disconnects.

 

Choose a Workplace within Your Home

It's important that you choose your own workplace in your own home. Similarly to your own office space or cubicle, your own area will better help you focus on the task at hand. And, if you live with other people in your house or apartment, they'll know better than to disturb you within that space. You'll be able to work in peace and accomplish all of what you need to be done for the day.

Make Sure You're Comfortable Enough

Now that you've reserved your own work area, make sure that you're comfortable in it. Is the space big enough for you to work properly? Or is it too small? What about your chair? Are you able to sit comfortably in it for hours while you accomplish your tasks? Will you need a footstool to raise up your feet every now and again? It's these details, while seemingly unimportant, that make all the difference to let you work smoothly throughout the day. 

 

Set Some Rules with Your Housemates

If you live with other people in your house or apartment, lay down some ground rules for them so that they'll know how to not disturb you while you're working. Things like banning them in your work area during the hours of your workday. Asking them to stay as quiet as possible whenever you have video conference meetings and the like. If they truly respect you, following your rules won't be difficult for them.

Dress Up for Work

Remember that you still have to work even when you're at home. This isn't some sort of vacation or rest period or anything like that. You still have to uphold certain professional standards within the hours of your workday. So with this in mind, make sure to still dress up before you log in for work. Maybe ask your boss if, instead of a full suit, you can just wear a business-casual outfit. Just look neat and tidy. You may not be in the office but looking the part still matters, even during video conference meetings and such. 

 

Keep Distractions Away from Your Work Space

This might seem pretty obvious but it doesn't hurt to mention it every now and again. It's absolutely important that you remove all the distractions from your workspace. You don't necessarily need a TV or radio while you work, do you? So consider these the first things you take out in your area. All of the toys that your kids will want to play with? Keep them away from your space and put them inside their room so the won't have to call you when they need it.

Set a Schedule

One of the advantages and disadvantages of working from home is that you're on your own time. this means you can craft your own schedule to your own liking. But, at the same time, it's easier for you to slack off knowing you're in charge of your own hours. This, in turn, can lead to a lot of unfinished tasks and piling up your workload unnecessarily. So in order to avoid this, set a schedule for yourself and strictly follow it! 

 

Remember to Take Breaks

Similarly to when you're working in an office, it's important to take a few breaks here and there. Since you're on your own time when working from home, you might think it's better if you work for hours on end until you finish a task or an entire project. However, this will only leave you exhausted and possibly lazy to work on another assignment for the following day. Keep your mind and body healthy by taking so much-needed breaks in-between. 


Some Helpful Tips for Working From Home

 

Walk Around from Time to Time

You may not know this yet but sitting for long hours-on-end can detriment your health. They range from putting you at risk of health problems to getting physical aches and the like. Fortunately, one of the freedoms of working from home is that you can work as you please, and if you want, you can do so standing up or even while walking about a little. What's stopping you from taking a nice stroll even when you're in a phone meeting?


 

Keep Refreshments Handy

And finally, try to keep refreshments handy within your workspace as much as possible. This will not only make your lunchbreak that much easier and quicker, but you don't have to waste precious time going all the way to the kitchen if you need something to eat or drink. A pitcher of cold water and a few snacks on a table in the corner of your work area is enough to keep you refreshed and nourished throughout your workday. 


Some Helpful Tips for Working From Home

 

As easy as you may think it is, working from home can be quite challenging. If you don't know how to properly go about it, you'd wish you were back in your own cubicle in the company office. Luckily for you, these tips will help you navigate this easily and effectively!
