Top Tips To Get The Best Out Of Working From Home


Visitors: 165

1. Make a to-do list.
2. Give your boss a weekly (or daily) run-down of all that you’ve done that day.

It doesn’t need to be detailed, but just makes sure he/she can see that you’re working hard and it’s therefore still in his/her interests to allow your arrangements to continue.
3. Check your email/phone every hour or couple of hours.

It’s easy to get distracted by the web, and if an email demands immediate attention it can be easy to forget what you were doing beforehand.
4. Make sure you have a few ways for people to contact you: landline, mobile, email, IM so people can always contact you and your boss feels secure that you are doing your job and not sat in a cafe somewhere.
5. Make sure you don’t feel like you’re ignoring the children. If you have your children at home during the day, then see if you can work in the evening or early morning so you don’t feel constantly torn.

6. Make sure your workspace is comfortable and for the sake of your posture, wrists, eyes etc, if you use a computer a lot then make sure you are sitting correctly.

Make sure friends, family and partners understand that you are working from home, and not just ‘at home’ so can’t be expected to drop everything to give someone a lift somewhere or do the odd chore.
8. If you’re working with a computer, it is important to take breaks away from the screen and stretch your legs.

Why not go and make a phone call or a cup of tea? Otherwise, before you know it, you’ll have been sat staring at the screen for four hours in a row, which could give you a headache and damage your eyesight.
9. Make time for a lunch hour.

There is often a big temptation to extend your working day at the beginning or end, feeling like it’s only time you would spend commuting anyway. If you are struggling to fit everything into your day, take a look at your schedule.
10. Remember that you are self-motivated to work and don’t need to feel guilty for doing so at home instead of in an office.
