With the current Covid-19 pandemic, most firms have recommended that their employees work from home. Working remotely has become a new reality, and maintaining productivity at home can require some extra effort. The following are some tips for staying focused while working from home.
Get a designated work station
A designated work station helps in setting the mood for work. Having such a setup help other house members realize that once one gets into his or her station, it means business. This consequently averts distraction. When choosing or setting a workstation, prioritize comfort by getting a seat that doesn’t hurt the back and/or neck. Also, ensure that there is sufficient lighting, air, and space.
Have a list to keep you motivated
Coming up with a to-do list keeps one motivated, productive, and organized while working from home. When creating a list, keep in mind both long- and short-term goals. Keeping track of short-term goals lets one know his/her progress, consequently making work more doable when in bits.
Working remotely means you’re less active. This can affect the health of an individual such as the development of back pain or knee stiffness due to sitting in the same position for extended hours. For one to remain healthy and active, it’s important to consider working out with virtual instructors, taking walks, or doing other domestic chores.
