Are you one of the many workers still calling the dining room table the office? Even towards the end of 2021, many people are still working remotely and telecommuting for calls and meetings. If you haven’t adapted to the new working format or found the right groove, here are a few tips to help you navigate the work week.
Define your work hours
For many people working remotely, the balance between work life and home life is hard to maintain. While you may be able to set your boundaries with yourself and those around you, it might not be so clear cut. While sitting in a comfortable environment, you might get caught up in work, lose track of time, and work for longer than you would normally. Make sure you stick to the clock to avoid burnout.
Set your boundaries
Living with other people can be difficult and working around them can make it even more challenging. For you to be productive during the day, your roommates and family members must respect your space and time. While you might be working from the dining table, you can’t participate in normal home life. Better yet, you should set up a designated area to work, so you can concentrate and not become easily distracted.
Take your breaks
Even if you’re still working from the comfort of your home, you should still take breaks throughout the day. Just don’t stay on your computer during your break. Instead, try going for a quick walk around the block for some vitamin D, fresh air, and to stretch your back and legs.
Working from home has its benefits, even if you do miss heading into the office. You don’t have to worry about commuting every day, and you’re able to care for your loved ones more often. With so many online communications platforms and the option to schedule video chats and zoom calls, you should still be able to attain that office feel or come pretty close.
