Cultivating a Healthy Work & Home Environment

Use these tips to stay on track and find your balance…

CONTINUE YOUR ROUTINE –
Wake up at your usual time, get dressed, wash your face and get ready for the day. You’ll feel better and be ready for those impromptu video calls.

DESIGNATE A WORKSPACE FOR YOUR HOME OFFICE –
Create an “office area” within your home. Having a spot that you treat as your “workplace” will help ease you into the same work mindset you have when you’re at the office.

COMMUNICATE OFTEN AND SET GOALS –
Establish an accountability group with your co-workers or team. Check in with each other about what you’re working on, and hold each other accountable.

KEEP CLEARLY DEFINED WORKING HOURS –
Honor your office hours. If you typically work 8-5 when you have to go to the office, try to keep those hours the same while working from home. Don’t forget to take time to enjoy some lunch!

REMEMBER YOU’RE AT WORK –
Avoid the distraction of multi-tasking. Do what you can to minimize distractions. If you don’t have a television playing in your office at work, don’t have one playing at home.

DON’T GET CONSUMED BY THE NEWS –
While it’s good to stay informed, it’s also easy to scroll your way into an anxious mess. Try setting timers for any breaks you take. You don’t want to get too immersed and forget you’re at work altogether.
