How to be successful while working from home

A laptop, cell phone, mug of coffee, 2 notebooks and pen are sitting on a place mat on a table. A to-do list is written Start each morning off in a grateful mindset. Organize your workload tackling the hardest tasks first. The rest of the day will go smoother...

With the stay at home orders being extended and as many companies continue to work remotely due to the coronavirus, we continue to adjust each week to working from home. Living in Southern California where our typical commutes to work have gone from averaging an hour to now, simply walking into another room of the house and it has been a definite perk.

Productivity can vary from day today but by intentionally starting each morning off with positivity and maintaining good structure through the day, we can set ourselves up for success. We recently came across information about the five a.m. club where the goal is to increase productivity that ultimately leads to success. The premise of waking early including weekends may not be the best fit for everyone but others may exceedingly thrive as an early riser. Part of maintaining a healthy immune system to ward off illness is to get plenty of sleep. So if you are an early rise, be sure to go to bed early enough so that you are not lacking in vital cell rejuvenation that occurs with adequate rest. Also it is important to make good eating choices for nourishment. Plan to eat healthy fruits, vegetables, and protein so that you don’t end up binging on sugary snacks each day.

Productivity tips:

Office set up – Gather essentials: plenty of water, gum, snacks, lip balm, a cozy sweater or throw

Keep a routine – Get moving: walk or exercise, deep breathing, daily disinfecting surfaces including electronics

Be presentable – Feel better: shower & dress even if you don’t have a Zoom meeting scheduled

Take breaks – Set a timer: get up & stretch your legs and learn to relax

Focus on the positive – Limit COVID-19 stories: beware of digital distractions including the news, DO activities you love or start new hobbies

Communicate – Daily: text, email, call or utilize Facetime or Zoom for chatting with colleagues and after work hours with friends & family

With so very many company layoffs, those who continue to have a position are incredibly grateful! When we accomplish tasks, meet deadlines, quotas or gain recognition, it can be very rewarding as well. Our day will fly by faster if we take pleasure in our work, so enjoy your job by staying motivated and put into practice the most excellent work ethic you possibly can.
