5 Tips For Working From Home

1. Location, Location, Location


Try to find yourself a dedicated and comfortable spot to work that you can associate with your job and leave when you’re off the clock — that means get off the couch, and definitely out of bed.



2. Bring The Outdoors In

If you do not have any greens in your designated work from home location, consider adding some indoor plants to create a more inviting and creative space. Plus, they make your home’s air healthier!



3. Repurpose your Commute

A major perk of working from home is ditching the commute. Use this time in the morning for a workout, self-renewal, or family time.


 4. Show your face

When possible, use video over the standard conference call to help create more interactions and avoid loneliness. 



Checkout video conferencing resources such as ZoomBlueJeansSkype, or Lifesize.


5. Create lists

Every morning, create a list of what you will deliver by the end of the day. If it’s helpful, scribble these down the night before so you can dive straight into work in the morning. 

If you don’t have a physical notepad handy, I LOVE the “Google Keep” in G Suite.

Keep offers a variety of tools for taking notes, including text, lists, images, and audio.
