The year 2020 has been full of unexpected surprises. There have been a lot of first-time experiences, such as the start of a global pandemic, to working remotely from home. Since the COVID-19 era is new for all of us, it’s important to find the best ways to make work-life ‘normal’ and productive again. Here are some tips for those of you working remotely from home this year.
Create a dedicated workspace
It looks like your storage room, garage, guest bedroom, kitchen or living room have now become your only options for creating a dedicated workspace. And for some, that many options are not available. We know it’s tough to get into work-mode when you’re comfortable in your own home. If you want to improve your focus and maintain productivity, it’s essential to designate a workspace that offers privacy and natural light. This will help you stay on task and complete work assignments with little-to-no distractions.
Update your equipment
Since many remote-from-home jobs in this era require you to use your own equipment, it’s important to update them so that they are reliable. It may benefit you to increase the speed of your Wi-Fi, trade in your old phone for a new one, purchase a new laptop or desktop, or even buy a desk and office chair to make you more productive. The predominant way to communicate with coworkers or colleagues is through technological devices. How embarrassing would it be if yours stopped working? Or, if it crashed during a call, assignment, or work-related meeting? You may view this as unimportant, but if your devices are outdated, this can be crucial.
It’s easy to roll out of bed, throw on those sweats and slippers and get started on work. However, creating that morning routine will better prepare you for the day ahead. If you wear business clothes that are suitable for the office, you can maintain a sense of control and normalcy during these uncertain times. It doesn’t actually matter which outfit you decide to throw one, as long as it makes you feel good, productive, and adequate for the tasks at hand. Another idea to disassociate work and home life, is to wear that business-casual outfit for your allotted shift, and then switch into your comfy clothes to let your mind and body know work for the day is finished.
