Work from home, or thinking about it? Establishing a work-from-home routine is essential for both your family and your business success. Whether you work from home part-time, full-time, for yourself, or for someone else, keep these tips in mind and find a routine that works best for you.
Establishing a Work-From-Home Routine
Create a designated home working area
Even if its a corner, find yourself a place you can call your “home office” and set up shop. This will help to inform everyone in the household that when you sit in that spot, you are working. Try to make that spot as distraction-free as possible and keep it organized (especially if you’re working with small spaces) to encourage workflow.
Create designated work hours
Working from home works best when you designate times you are actually working. Set work days and work times you know you can work distraction-free, and stick to it.
Dress the part
Even if you’re not going to see anyone during your workday because you work remotely, it still helps to dress for the workday. Getting ready for the job is all part of establishing a routine that works; it is essentially the first step.
Don’t forget to get out of the house
Just because you work from home doesn’t mean you should spend all your time in the house. Get out to network, meet like-minded folks, and rejuvenate the blood flow from all that sitting in your office space.
