Over the last couple of days, I’ve done a bit of research on the “work from home” topic. I’ve learned a couple of interesting points, and if you are like me and work from home, I would love to see what your experience has taught you.
- Get dressed and clean up, just as you would if you would be going to an actual office outside of your home.
- Handle your most tedious activities early in the day. Preferably before 2pm! According to a blog entry I read, research has shown that you’re “willpower” actually diminishes during the day.
- Avoid distractions, (including: refreshing your Facebook feed). Sometimes when we get overwhelmed, our brain goes into neutral. My best solution for this is getting up, stepping away from the computer. Grabbing a glass of water and taking a few minutes to refresh.
What are your thoughts? Any additional suggestions?
