Has your employer made the switch to a remote workplace recently? Having to work from home can be hard to handle initially, but having a gameplan can help! Here are some ways you can maximize your time while working remotely here at 803 Corday!


Set Aside a Home Office Space


The environment you work in can affect your motivation to stay on task. Instead of falling for the trap of working from your bed, it’s best to set aside space for a home office. Move your workstation away from your bedroom so as not to disturb your sleep cycle. Try setting up shop by a window for gorgeous views of Naperville nature, or even on your private balcony for a breath of fresh air! Here are some more suggestions on how to organize your home office. 


Stick to a Set Schedule While Working From Home


Losing track of time without a punch-in clock to guide you is common. To make sure you’re staying on track with your goals, you’ll need to make your own remote work schedule. Wake up at the same time every day, and stop work at the same time as well. You can curate the times according to your night owl or early bird preferences! And to feel more put together, be sure to get dressed for work every day too. Check out this list for more tips on making a new work from home schedule.


Take the Time to Rest From Remote Work


With more free time in the day, you may feel tempted to fill up your work schedule with even more work to stay occupied. Don’t forget that you’re human! Taking breaks when they’re needed will help refresh your mind and body. Try doing some strengthening yoga poses in between bite-size tasks. Really enjoy your full lunch hour. Rest your eyes from the harsh light of your computer screen using the 20-20-20 rule. With regular breaks, your remote work will come easily.


With the right mindset and plan, working from home can work for you! How are you planning on tackling the new home office routine? Let us know in the comments!
