At one point or another in our careers, we’ve all found ourselves needing to work remote. For some it’s indefinite, others temporary. However, working from home can often times be a challenge when you’re accustomed to the accessibility of resources that an office setting can provide. It’s no surprise that being “at work” offers routine, higher productivity and accountability within a team.
Enter COVID-19. You are now working remote daily, potentially with kids home from school and typical day to day routine is a thing of the past. What can you do to better the situation, for you, your work and your family as social distancing and self-quarantine become a reality?
How to (Productively) Work from Home:
- Structure your day like you would the office
- Don’t work in your PJ’s
- Choose a work space
- Create a definitive schedule with a start and end time, inclusive of a break
- Plan what you’ll be working on ahead of time
- Keep the team calendar front of mind
- Stay connected to your team via email, text or teleconferencing
- Set expectations and boundaries for those who are home with you to limit interruptions
- Avoid the TV and social media while working, especially right now with constant COVID-19 updates
- Meal plan as if you were going into the office.
As we modify our lives around the COVID-19 pandemic and adjust to the constraints of work/life balance from home, the best thing we can truly do for ourselves, family and work is stay positive and find a routine that allows balance.
