Working from home became the new norm as more and more businesses are offering remote work for their employees in an effort to decrease the number of Coronavirus infections at their offices.
It may sound daunting and non-effective for many as it means that our work and personal lives will inevitably converge. Many have preferred to work at their respective offices as it allows them to focus entirely on their work without the disruptions of their home life.
There are some notable advantages of working from home, for example:
- there is no need to commute to work - travelling can be quite disruptive to our routines as it may be time-consuming and for some, it can even be expensive;
- office space can be expensive - some individuals may rent office space for their business needs, and by working from home you can essentially cut out this particular cost;
- you can establish a more flexible schedule - working from home can enable you to focus on work tasks and personal home duties at the same time. For instance, you can wait in for an electrician to arrive should you need their services;
- it can even be more environmentally friendly - for those who are eco-conscious, working from home can be a better alternative as you do not require cars or other modes of transportation for the purpose of work.
We understand how the Coronavirus pandemic has disrupted our work and personal lives and so we have compiled a list of essential tips for those who are thinking of transitioning their work from their office into their home.
- Establish a quiet work area
- Delegate tasks
We must reiterate that not all tasks need to be completed by you and that delegating tasks can prevent you from being overwhelmed.
- Complete the hardest task first
- Define your boundaries
This may prove to be a problem as you may find yourself browsing the Internet and spending precious time going through each and every social media platform. Define your boundaries by placing realistic restrictions in place to increase your level of productivity.
