Working from Home

February 25, 2022
  • Set your alarm and get up, showered and dressed as you normally would for a day’s work (not necessarily office wear – stay comfy – but maybe not your PJs!).
  • If you have space in your home, set up in a separate area from your normal living space (preferably an area you can close away at the end of your working day).
  • Stand up at least once an hour and move your body. Look out of a window when you do or go outside and breathe in some fresh air.
  • If your office is normally a burble of activity, maybe have the TV, radio or music on in the background to simulate the office environment and make you feel less lonely (as long as it isn’t a distraction).
  • Arrange conference calls or use messaging services to stay connected to your colleagues throughout the day – you still need to bounce ideas off each other even though you are not physically together.
  • This may sound strange but you need to use your voice every now and then so, if you don’t have calls scheduled, read out loud some of the things that you have written every once in a while to keep your voice going.
  • Work your normal hours or agree your working hours with your manager and, when you finish, shut everything down and either close the door or pack it away so you don’t feel like you’re in the office during your down-time.
  • Have a healthy lunch break.
  • Drink plenty of water (a top tip for basically everything!)
  • If you normally come home from the office and immediately get changed into something comfy, do the same at the end of your working from home day – it will help to separate work from normal life.
  • Develop a comfortable fitness routine.
