Many of us are feeling the same right now: Due to the corona virus, we have to stay at home and also work from home. What sounds cozy and relaxing at first turns out to be a real challenge due to the difficulties in concentrating and the distractions that our home offers us!
We'll tell you how you can make your home office as pleasant and efficient as possible!
5 tips for your successful home office!
We have scoured the internet for you and tried the tips ourselves: Here are our tried and tested tips for making working from home as pleasant as possible!
1. Create a daily routine
Try to get up at your usual time, stick to your normal morning routine, and create a rough schedule for each day. This is how you create routine and ensure a pleasant everyday life. Our brain is most efficient in the morning. Therefore, we should do the things that matter most as soon as possible. The earlier you are productive, the more you can get through the day.
2. Provide a pleasant workplace
Find a quiet place where you can work undisturbed and concentrate. Make this workplace as pleasant as possible and try to look into the green if possible - this ensures a good working atmosphere and helps you to be able to concentrate better.
3. Feed your brain
Here, too, routine is important: try to eat at the same time as you always do, eat healthily and provide your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs - so that you can feel good from the inside out and nothing interferes with your concentration way! Never forget: "You are what you eat!"
4. Good communication with colleagues
Talk to your work colleagues as best you can and try to stay up-to-date! Even if the many Skype calls are getting tiresome, remember: Difficult times can, at best, bring a team even closer together!
5. Dress as usual
On workdays, dress as you normally would for work and try to avoid sweatpants. As Karl Lagerfeld once said: 'Whoever wears sweatpants has lost control of his life'. Familiar clothes help you to find your way back into everyday working life more easily and to be able to switch off better after work is done!
With these tips, nothing should stand in the way of your successful home office! We wish you every success and perseverance for working from home :)
