Please share any tips and tricks to working from home here. There are some people that could really do with your help.
I find making a list of things to do tomorrow just before I finish each day helps to add to the sense of daily structure. I can start with a focused task rather than looking to see what emails came in overnight to direct my day. A list of 5 work tasks plus 5 home jobs in addition to the daily structure suggestions above help to add a sense of achievement each day. Achievement is helpful for my mental well being when working at home.
Thought of the day:
When managing teams throughout the day I’ve found that using Whatsapp Voice memos are very useful. It allows you to ask/answer a question, propose and idea or give instruction but without coming across direct or cold (which often messages are). It also, maintains that human element to interaction AND is a nice personal training ground for being clear and succinct.
Hi Folks, check out my practical tips on working from home! I’ve been doing it for a long time, so have managed to form some good habits. It takes a while, so don’t beat yourself up if you aren’t quite in to a disciplined routine yet. Habits take a while to form. According to the European Journal of Social Psychology, it takes 66 days on average for new behaviours to form. However, in my experience, i’d recommend being stricter with yourself in general- making lists, ticking things off systematically, sticking to times, etc and these habits should form at a quicker rate! One tip that most seem to be struggling with is the snacking one right now! Step away from the fridge people!
Stay well, Helen @ Benchmark Collective
This is a process we’ve applied to the whole family:
At weekends we do the same routine but replace work with chill, reading, talking or playing.
With my wider team we have daily tasks to work on, and we often open up Zoom and all work on our own things but knowing the others are there if we want to ask a question etc.
Hope this helps! Keep safe! x
