How to Work From Home: Tips from people who do it Successfully
Many businesses were already preparing for more remote working in the days before the UK government said everyone should remotely work from home if possible.
Getting started early
Believe it or not, one way to work from home productively is to dive into your to-do list as soon as you wake up. Simply getting a project started first thing in the morning can be the key to making progress on it gradually throughout the day.
Pick a finishing time
You might be under the impression that working from home establishes more work-life balance, but be careful with that assumption. You can get so caught up in your activity, in a relaxing environment, that you lose complete track of time. Set an alarm at the end of the day to indicate your normal work day is coming to an end. You don’t have to stop at exactly that time, but knowing the work day is technically over can help you start the process of saving your work and calling it quits for the evening.
Working from home might help you focus on your work in the short term, but it can also make you feel cut off the larger operation happening in the office. Instant messaging and videoconferencing tools can make it easy to check in with coworkers and remind you how your work is contributing to the big picture.
