Ever since the coronavirus was declared a world-wide pandemic, more and more businesses have made their employees work from home. While telecommuting can certainly have its benefits, it can be difficult to start for the first time. Whether your kids are distracting you or you’re having a hard time getting off that couch, here are some ways you can make working from home a little easier:
It can be tempting to sleep in until noon on your first day working from home. After all, you tell yourself, you can just work in the evening, right? While your schedule is much more flexible at home than in the office, it’s still a good idea to stick to your normal routine to ensure that you’re motivated to work. If you don’t, you could end up sleeping in until noon, and only getting a few hours of work each day.
In addition to having a routine, having your own workspace will further motivate you to actually work. It will also help block out distractions, such as TV shows, pets, or kids, that could tempt you away from your next project. If you don’t have a traditional desk, use your dining room table, or really any space that isn’t your bed or couch.
In an office, you’re usually not just sitting at your desk 24/7. You’re getting up, getting coffee, and talking to coworkers. These distractions seem counterintuitive, but they can actually keep your mind fresh by giving you a break from your work every now and then. So, be sure to get up, move around, and even go outside for some fresh air.
Since you can’t just walk over to someone’s desk to ask a question, it’s important to still stay in contact with your coworkers and managers. To do this, you can use messaging apps such as Slack or Microsoft Teams. You can also use a softphone to call your coworkers at any time.
