10 Tips for Working from Home During a Pandemic
So you have been working from home due to the state of the recent times and you got your new Anda Seat gaming chair. You are excited to have your workspace done up. The only problem is you can’t seem to stay focused during the day. With so many distractions at home you don’t know how to be productive.
No worries! We’ve got 10 tips on how to stay productive while working from home.
- Find Your Space
It is important to designate a specific space in your home to work from. This is so when you are done work you can separate your home life from your work. Also, a designated space helps you to focus. Keep all your work items here and not spread around the house.
- Create a Commute
Our daily commute to the office puts us in the headspace to start work. You can take a walk around the block and back just to get you in the right mindset. Also, the fresh air is good for you having been stuck at home all this time.
- Make a Plan
Just as in the office you have a “To Do” list, start by planning out your day. Write down the tasks you must complete and check them off one by one as you go through your day. This will help you stay focused instead of figuring things out as the day goes on.
- Take Breaks
Just as in the office you need a breather, so do you at home. Schedule out your breaks as you would at the office and take a moment to step away from your workspace. This will help you clear your head and get refocused. Make sure to time your breaks and get back to work when you are done.
- Dress for the Occasion
When you work from the office you aren’t in sweats. Getting up and dressing up will help get you in the mood for work. Just as you would get up and get ready for the office do the same for your home office.
- Set Office Hours
If you are looking for more structure, than be sure to set your office hours. Do you work 9-5 when in the office? Then the same hours should be set at home. This will help you to set boundaries and when you are done work, to step away until the next day.
- Video Calls
In the age of Zoom, it is easy to stay connected with your coworkers while working from home. Set up weekly meetings to touch base and keep everyone on track. This will keep you motivated while working from home knowing you have people to report to at the end of the week.
- Stay Tidy
It’s always easier to stay productive when your workspace is clean. Keep your desk tidy and files organized. This will help keep your mind clear and focused on work rather then on the clutter.
- Have a good Chair
So you are working from home and don’t have the office chairs, be sure to invest in a good chair (such as the Anda Seat gaming chair) and ask your office if they will cover the cost. It is important to be comfortable while working. This is an important part of staying focused and productive.
- Stay Hydrated
It’s easy to forget to drink water during the day. Staying hydrated keeps the mind sharp so keep a pint or two of water at your desk and sip on it throughout the day.
