PLANS & PRICING
Working from home is tricky because the line between working and relaxing can get blurred. It’s easy to slip into a slump while on company time and then work through the night. But maintaining a schedule and having fixed times for work to prevent fatigue and burnout.
Create a Schedule: The beauty of the work from home structure is the freedom to plan your work day based on your convenience and peak productivity timings. Are you an early bird or a night owl? Do you prefer to take naps and relax in the afternoon? Do you have a fixed workout time? Plan your day accordingly and notice the increased productivity.
Stay Connected: It’s easy to feel lonely while working from home if you are used to a bustling office environment. Staying connected with your coworkers by using apps like Slack, Google hangouts, work whatsapp groups and similar platforms helps keep you in check. It also helps everyone involved realise that they are not alone and can act as a form of social support.
Take Screen Breaks- Often, our productivity is lowered because of fatigue. Remember to take breaks from your screen to avoid eye, back and head pain. Follow the 20-20-20 rule- every 20 minutes, look away for 20 seconds at an object at least 20 ft. away.
Fixed Work Environment- When you work in the same place every day, it conditions your brain to associate that space with work. This can help simulate a “workplace” and a “homeplace”.
Schedule ‘Me’ Time: Talk to your boss and make sure you don’t take too much onto your plate. Take out time to exercise, read, enjoy time with your family or anything that you enjoy outside of work. Be sure to include all these into your daily schedule to increase your productivity and give yourself things to look forward to.
