How to work from home effectively

05 March, 2020

The Look of Love

For many of us, adjusting to a new normal means working remotely. To help get the most out of your new routine, we've popped together our top suggestions for working from home effectively.

Wake up at a normal time each day

Keeping as many of your usual work habits consistent, even when you're at home, is a simple way to keep your mind in work mode. 

Keep up your self-care routine

Getting dressed and ready for the day is a powerful motivator. And while you may not want to bother with makeup, keeping up your regular skincare routine will help you feel refreshed and ready to start your day.

Set up your workstation

It's easy to become distracted when you don't have everything you need on hand. Setting up a dedicated work zone will help you stay focussed and allow your mind to separate "work time" and "home time" more easily.

Take regular breaks

Whether working at home or not, it's important to take regular breaks away from the computer. Standing up every hour for a few minutes will help keep your energy up and rest your eyes.

Keep the TV off

We've all been guilty of working from the couch. With more time inside though, you've got plenty of spare time to catch up on the Kardashians without it eating into your 9-5. Instead, sit at your work station and play calming music to keep your mind focused.

Set a schedule

Whether that means writing down tasks hour by hour or setting up a to-do list, getting organised is a great way to motivate yourself. It'll also help you feel a sense of achievement at the end of each day.

Look good, feel better
