Here at FSIoffice, we are doing our best to follow all the available best practices from the CDC to reduce the transmission of the COVID-19 virus including “social distancing” and having most of our office employees work from home.
We know from our own experience that it can be a sudden transition to working from home so below we have a few suggestions to make the transition easier followed by some products that can make your workflow remain as productive at home as it is at your “traditional” workspace.
• While working from, home approach your day as if you are actually going into the office. If you typically wake up at 6:15, brush your teeth and get ready like usual stay on that schedule. Sticking to your usual routine will allow you to stay focused on work even though you are at home.
• Establish a specific workspace in your home where you can focus on the task at hand. It can be tempting to work from your bed, but that is not the best idea. Studies show that having your devices with you in bed can upset your sleeping rhythms.
• Take advantage of the outdoors during lunch breaks. Working from home offers you freedoms the office doesn’t. So, take the opportunity to walk around the neighborhood and gather your focus and thoughts before returning to work.
• Dress professionally…The key is to allow your mind to think you’re actually at work so you can be productive. If your office policy is coat and tie or office causal then do that at home as well.
