Tips on Working From Home

Balance Work and Home in the Same Space

With so many workplaces continuing to keep employees safe working at home, people may be challenged to get into a groove and stay focused. With some planning and minor adjustments to your daily routine, however, you can set yourself up for success when your Wilshaw apartment doubles as your workplace.

Set a Schedule

Virtual meetings aside, working from home often brings with it the freedom to set your own hours, and you may find that your most productive times don’t necessarily match up with when you used to head into the office. Knowing what time of day works best for you is helpful, but it’s important to set a daily schedule and stick with it. Giving yourself a defined time to switch into “work mode” helps keep work life and home life clearly separated.

Don’t Get Lost in Chores 

It can be very tempting to use your work-from-home time to cross a few things off your home to-do list. Resist the urge to organize your pantry or start a load of laundry, which can pull you right out of a work mindset and make it difficult to get back to it when you need to. Plus, with Wilshaw’s in-home laundry, catching up during your off-hours couldn’t be easier!

Separate Work Space From Home Space

“Working from home” may conjure up thoughts of relaxing on the couch or in bed with your laptop, getting tasks done in comfort. However, it’s much easier to draw a clear line between “work” and “home” if you have a designated workspace. Choose a desk or table that you use only for work, and if you need a change of scenery, use your kitchen island as a desk. 

Schedule several short breaks a day, as well as a lunch break. Get up and stretch, have a snack, and take a moment to refresh and renew your mood and energy. Being productive doesn’t mean you need to work nonstop; most people get far more accomplished with short, active breaks.

Spend a few minutes at the end of each day straightening up your workspace – put away all work-related materials, and allow yourself to leave your work behind, just like you would at the office.
