Since the pandemic began, many office workers have started working from home. Home, which used to be a place to rest and recharge after work, has now become a workplace. So how do you stay focused in this new work environment?

In the office, everything is designed and created with a purpose in mind. When you walk into the office, it feels like an office. It feels like a place for work.

When you work from home, you have full control from your own workspace. Create your own small workspace that feels like your own personal office.

This means removing all distracting and unnecessary elements and maintaining consistency in the space.

Create a work-from-home schedule

This is especially important for people who are not tied to a specific time of day. With so many Ws Data projects to complete, you may not be able to set set hours as you may be working mornings, afternoons, and nights.

The schedule starts here. What time are you going to work? When are you going to have lunch? When will you allow breaks? If you set a time limit, you start to feel excited instead of relaxed.

If you decide to work from 9 to 12 and have lunch, it’s a good idea to have no expectations other than work during those three hours.

What are the conditions for a good workspace?
A good workspace should have fewer distractions and natural light. Set up a workspace away from noisy areas and away from high-traffic areas.

Stick to Your Schedule of Course Unexpected

As the saying goes, “dress for success,” this is especially true when working from home. We all remember the Gulf Phone Number days when it was fun and games to wear sweatpants and a cool Def Leppard t-shirt on Zoom calls, and we don’t blame you for jamming.

But wearing professional attire when working from home can take away your mental space to focus on your work. So, don’t forget to ‘dress for success’ even at home.

It doesn’t have to be an ironed three-piece suit or a $1,000 blouse and skirt combo (we’re not judging, Mr. Hipster, Mr. Hipster), but it has to be what you would call workwear in your field. Professional attire.

It may seem out of place at home, but as I mentioned earlier, if you have a designated work space, wearing clothes that fit that space will feel much more normal and motivating.
