Five Tips for Working From Home

Parkside provides the ideal sleek and stylish work-from-home environment that many people are searching for. Of course, once you have designated a workspace, it is important to establish good habits while working from home. Consider the following five tips for working from home:

Keep your workspace free from distractions

If the backdrop of your workspace is a pile of dishes and a stack of bills, it may be difficult to remain focused. Set up your workspace in a quiet spot, with no visual distractions on your desk or in your line of vision. Doing so will help you remain entirely focused on your work.

Take a lunch break

When at home, it may seem convenient to continue working while eating lunch. However, it is beneficial to give your brain a break. Take twenty or thirty minutes away from your desk to eat a nutritious meal and go for a short walk outside. When you return to work, you will feel ready to tackle the second half of your work day.

Stand up and move at least once an hour

Studies have shown that taking a two minute walk every hour promotes health and longevity. If a two minute walk is not feasible, consider moving in place or stretching. Set a timer in order to hold yourself accountable. You will almost certainly find that hourly movement will become a welcomed part of your routine.

Create opportunities to verbally connect with colleagues

While emailing and instant messaging are convenient ways to connect with colleagues, consider the occasional phone call or video chat. Hearing a coworker's voice provides the personal connection that is otherwise lacking when working from home.

Resist the urge to work outside of normal working hours

One of the downsides of having your workspace located within your home is the sense that you are always "at work." Deadlines and emails can seem as though they are quite literally looming over your head. Do your best to mentally and physically remove yourself from your desk once your workday comes to a close. Doing so not only creates a healthy work-life balance, but helps create separation between home and work.
