Do you work from home, or wish to do so?
It sounds amazing you don’t have to get up early to get the office in time every morning. However, studies show that working from home can harm your mental health. If you are working form home, use these tips to keep you healthy mentally and physically.
Create an office space
By making a place designated only for work at your place, you can focus on your work and don’t have to get bothered by work when doing personal stuff. As if you go to the office, create an office place with a desk and a nice chair.
Set up the regular hours
You may think you can start and working anytime if you work from home. However, it is not good to lose the boundary of professional and personal life. Just like you set up an office space, set up the regular hours you work, to avoid your work’s interfering your life too much.
What you wear affects the mood. If you don’t shower or change, you won’t be able to get out of the relax mode, when you have to work. To improve the productivity, get ready before you head to your office space in home.
Set a timer
It is never good to lose the sense of time when working at home. You forget to take rests, or you could spend too much time on one task. By setting a timer, you get reminded to stand up and to get refreshed. Try to do this at least once an hour.
