With the current state of the world, many of us are making the transition and starting to work from home. Working from home, it can be difficult to stick to your typical work routine and stay productive during the day. View our tips on how to stick to your usual work routine and stay focused at our apartments in Delray Beach!
#1 Set Up an Office Space
Whether you have a spare bedroom to turn into an office, or you’re working from your kitchen table, it is important to have a designated space where you can get work done. When you set up an office space, you will feel more like you’re at work rather than at home and it will be easier to adjust your brain to work mode. If you work from your bed or your couch, you are more likely to be less productive and it will cause you to become drowsy as the day goes on.
#2 Get Ready for the Day
When you work from home, it can be easy to just roll out of bed and go straight to work but it will make sticking to your usual routine more difficult. Don’t turn off your alarm and don’t snooze it until the last minute. Get out of bed at the usual time and take the time to get ready for your day. By taking out the time of your commute, you will have time to fix yourself a real breakfast and enjoy a cup of coffee before clocking in. By getting ready for the day, you will be more likely to stick to your routine and transitioning back to the office will be easier.
#3 Take a Break
Since you are working from home, it can be easy to skip break time and work straight through the day but it is important to take breaks so you maintain the same level of productivity throughout the day. Being so close to everything that you need, it can be easy to eat lunch at while you work or just run to the bathroom and get right back to work. Set specific times to take breaks throughout the day that way you can keep your mind fresh and the day will go by quicker. Taking a break is also a good time to step outside onto your balcony and enjoy the fresh air.
