3 Tips for Feeling Comfortable and Staying Productive in Your Home Office
When it comes to working out of your home office, striking a balance between productivity and convenience can be tough. You need a desk, a computer (and any necessary programs), and, most importantly, the ability to be productive. With the distractions that are inherent to working at home, you have to find a way to combat disruptions and keep your workflow going strong. Applied Ergonomics is here to help build out an ergonomic workstation that will suit your home office perfectly.
Being able to work out of your home means that your boss trusts you; you’ve proven yourself an asset to the company and you’ve been rewarded with your boss’s confidence in your ability to succeed at home. But making the most of the space you have in your home can be difficult when you’re trying to incorporate an office as well. Applied Ergonomics can help to retrofit any room in your home into an ergonomic workstation. We’re happy to work with you to give you exactly what you need in a home office.
As you’ve probably noticed if you’ve worked at home for any length of time, it’s much easier to be distracted—but before you get discouraged, keep in mind that there were distractions at your office too. We know that working at home can prove to be a unique challenge, so we’ve compiled a list of three ways you can keep your home office feeling comfortable to work in so you can stay productive.
1. Decorate your space. Your home is probably already decorated with some type of unifying theme throughout, so here’s your chance to make your office feel different. We’re not saying you need to go crazy, but it’s a good opportunity to make a room look exactly the way you want. Add a little personality to your room instead of making it an imitation of the white-walled cubicle you just left.
2. Make a plan to figure out how you’ll deal with distractions. It’s inevitable that working from home will lead to a whole new set of distractions, so be proactive in thinking through a plan that works for both you and your family when distractions come along.
3. Keep it clean. This simple tip will make a huge difference. If your desk is cluttered, take a few minutes to reorganize. Once everything is in its right place, move on to the floor. If you have small children in your home, you might want to remove the toys that may have found their way into your office.
