Working from home is just terrible. It’s lonely, counter-productive, filled with distractions, and you can’t walk away from your work at the end of the day. Thankfully, there are some easy ways to combat this!
Step one: Set regular hours for yourself, this way you know when you’re working and when you’re not. Having an schedule is key.
Step two: Set aside a workspace for yourself. It helps if it is far away from where you have your leisure activities. Try working in a different room, perhaps even a different building that’s a short commute away.
Step three: Fill your off-site at-home workplace with your regular coworkers. It will offset the loneliness and improve communication. Make sure your boss is there too so you know your performance is up to snuff!
And just like that, you’ve escaped the doldrums of the stuffy office workplace in favor of working at home! Try it now! You can thank me later. 😉
