Setting up your workspace

Ensure you consider your wellbeing and set up a comfortable workspace while creating new and healthy habits.

Be comfortable

You need to be able to sit comfortably at your PC or device. Make sure your chair is at the correct height and that your device is positioned in a way that is not going to cause any physical damage to you. 

System set up

Make sure that you and your team all have the correct systems in place to effectively work remotely. Consider a strong internet connection, the devices needed to fulfill tasks, digital versions of important documents and a plan to work digitally.

Prioritise

Identify the top three things you need to accomplish today to hit your business goals and accomplish those first.

De-clutter

Keep your personal work area clean and clear of distractions, even if you have to put everything in a box behind you. This will make it much easier to remain focused on your work.

Take a break

Schedule regular breaks so you can walk away from your workspace and move around. If you have a dog, or fancy some fresh air, take the opportunity to go for your daily walk. A brisk 20-minute walk in the fresh air will make all the difference to your productivity and mindset.

Stay hydrated

Whether your choice of beverage is water, tea or coffee, always remember to stay hydrated. You may consider making a healthy smoothie or juice in the morning to wake up and create a morning routine while working from home.

Communicate

It can get lonely working from home, especially if you live alone. Remember to keep in touch with your colleagues by phone or video call and stay connected.

Switching off

When you have finished for the day, really do finish. It may be tempting to log back on and check your emails or finish off that last bit of work, but try to resist. A structured day and time to recharge is important to a healthy working from home routine.
