Nowadays work from home is the buzz word and is probably going to be the world is going to function. Work has shifted from the office desk to the couch and the bed side table. The environment has changed but the expectations are the same. It is a difficult task to meet these expectations without having a suitable change in the mindset and the environment.
It is important to determine the work area on the work that is required to be done. Choose a work area depending on what is expected from you. A calm space to make notes or to think; or opt for the dining table while participating in a meeting. Ensure that you are distraction free. Identify which is your most productive part of the day and see if you can sort your work accordingly.
Irrespective of the environment in which one works, it is important to plan out a daily schedule. Set a start time, a break time; it is important to take a break to refresh yourself from time to time; and a time to clock off for the day. This will not only help track progress but will also keep you organized.
Taking a walk around the corner can relax and pave way for new ideas. A cup of coffee, spending time with children and being off screen can actually help gear yourself up. Constant screen staring and work related thoughts may cause increased tension and stress. It is important to relax and rejuvenate oneself. Just because you work from home it does not mean that you have to be logged on 24/7. It is important to create a work life balance irrespective of a real time environment or a virtual environment.
