DUBAI – Is working from home putting you in near panic? Here are some top tips from the remote team of visual communications tool Piktochart to help you make your remote work experience as successful as it can be.
Making your bed every morning can have a bigger impact than you think. It sets the tone for the entire day and puts you on a productive mindset.
Daily exercise reduces stress and gives you the stamina you need to work longer, so don’t let it take a back seat when you are working from home.
It’s tempting to stay in your PJs, but getting dressed in a work outfit will make you feel like you’re at work and not at home so you are more determined to get your work done.
Bringing work into bed can mess with your sleep and hurt productivity. Keep your mind off sleep by taking your work out of the bedroom and into a separate, organized workspace.
Before you begin your work, write down all the tasks you need to do for the day. This helps you stay organized and focused on what needs to be accomplished.
If you have family members who are home while you are still working, give them clear rules about what they can and cannot do during your work hours.
Don’t be a hermit. Stay e-connected using tools like Slack and Zoom to chat with workmates, and use programs like Jira and Google Drive to collaborate with remote colleagues.
When your focus starts to wane, have quick breaks, whether it is to grab coffee and doughnut, listen to your favorite podcast, or go for a quick workout. You’ll come back energized for a new task.
Working from home can be a big transition and you might feel like you’re not getting anything done at first. Don’t worry; you’ll get the hang of things soon. Go easy on yourself.
