Tips for Effectively Working from Home

Now more than ever, people are working from home because of the coronavirus outbreak. This sudden change has forced both individuals and organizations to transition to remote work without having time to properly examine the best ways to create an online-only work culture. As a society, we are thus all new-ish to this work-from-home lifestyle and some more than others are finding this transition difficult to adjust to. We all face unique challenges when working remotely, not only due to personality types but also because of the different tasks required by different jobs, where for some, it’s the best thing to happen to them, and as for others, not so much. But is remote work really a blessing in disguise? Keep reading if you want to learn how to make the most of remote work and some tips to effectively manage your work time at home. 


    1. Maintain a regular routine

When working remotely, it’s important to set a schedule and stick to it, allowing you to maintain a healthy work-life balance to avoid burnout. That being said, one advantage of remote work is the flexible timetable it allows. We recommend adjusting your routine to your daily workload so that you aren’t working more hours than necessary. 


    2. Have a clutter-free workspace

Where possible, create the most comfortable and clutter-free space and designate it just for your working hours. This allows your brain to automatically separate ‘work’ from ‘play’, causing you to make the most of your working hours to deliver top-notch work.  If that’s not possible, just moving your laptop from your lap to your desk can have tremendous benefits for your concentration, performance and productivity. 


    3. Take breaks & have a set clock out time

Make sure you know your company’s policy on breaks and take them, after all, breaks are there for a reason. Get up and move around, stretch your legs or even get some food and water. Calling a friend or family member when you’re feeling overwhelmed definitely helps lighten up your work mood, and cracking a laugh can really get you going for the rest of the day. It’s also super important for you to have a pre-assigned clock-out time so that you avoid overworking yourself. 


    4. Get dressed

Performing and being your best self has a lot to do with feeling good with yourself. Getting dressed comfily but in style can help boost your confidence, self-esteem and positivity, where you will naturally feel that you are performing at a higher level. Wearing a full MANOLA outfit will most definitely boost your mood :)


    5. Eat healthy means & drink water

Remember that a healthy mind needs a healthy body. In order to perform at your best, make sure you’re fueling your body by eating nutritious foods and drinking plenty of water. Having regular snacks can be motivating and can help keep your focus up during peak hours of the day. 


    6. Posture

It’s so easy to fall into bad posture habits when working from home. At MANOLA, we want to remind you of the importance of good posture and to continuously check on it and correct it if you find yourself slacking. Bad posture can not only lead to body soreness, but also headaches which may hinder your productivity.
