Working at home seems to be part of the best option especially during this season where there is a global pandemic disease. Every one might not be allowed to move from one distance to the other and so what next is to stay at home and perform our task.
Working from home gives you more space and opportunity to even perform more task while doing the same work.
Many benefits occur to some while working from home likewise the distraction setting, either way depends on you.
The basic thing is to stay healthy and work from any where without feeling bored & lonely with a low resources at hand.
There are some that have been working from home for a long time now because of the level of technology. One can easily communicate and work in that condition while some cannot.
This might be because of kids at home, noise or family problems preventing them from working from home. Some works just need a good environment where you stay with your colleagues and create good ideas or work from one place to the other.
However, to achieve a great turn up even working from home requires some basic elements or principles which you must follow.
Keys to Motivation while Working from Home
Below are the various keys to make you feel motivated even when you are working at home.
A good enabling environment
This should be the first ting to do if you really want to enjoy your work from home. You should make out a little space at home for the work.
Creating a little space already gives you the mindset that once you want to work you enter there and perform the task.
Therefore, this is called good office enabling environment where you can easily sit out and do your job. To make it comfortable, design the place like a normal office with a desk and portable chair.
So you can even place a computer device on the desk, calendar and other valuable things an office should have.
Office items and neatness
Yes I must include this because is very much necessary especially when you are doing something that puts food on your table.
Most times is very good that once you are ready for work, you will be focus and do the job for a period of time.
I know if you are at your main office at work , you keep it well, tidy and keep some few things far away from it especially the unwanted items.
Working from home is not different from that and so we must try to place items we need for work close to us.
Finally, you can also do this with your computer, delete the unwanted files and free up more space for work.
Wake up early and prepare your day
Do this always and it becomes part of you. This is a work you have to be dedicated to and give in all your best.
Therefore, you should know the time you really need to be awake always and then dress up for the day after morning activities.
This will make you feel more motivated because you cannot be lying down on the bed all day and claim you work from home.
Set out time for sleep, time to be in your home office and time for breaks, in that way you are really heading somewhere.
The morning early preparation makes you active and ready for a new task and what you want to achieve for the day.
Dress up for work already
This is the basic thing you must do but some will still find it difficult to dress up completely for the new day work.
Many people that work from home still wear their night cloths, some feel too relaxed and disturbed with something.
Yes, wearing some of those cloths might make you feel relaxed and watching movie all day. However, if you wear office cloths and mere looking at yourself reminds you that you have to be in the office working.
Dress up normally on the office cloths and not your bed clothes, by doing that your mind is conditioned to working and creating more ideas for productivity.
The cloths can make you boost more confidence and self esteem towards work plan.
Draft a schedule (Working from Home)
This is the catalog for your work activities and load. To make schedule will help you to work more around the clock, be productive and come out successful.
Waking up everyday shows you are waking up for a new task or work plan and you can do this very easy.
If you wake up and nothing to do in the office you can be disoriented or disorganized. So make a good perfect work plan either weekly or monthly.
The work schedule plan can be a bunch of task and they you will start to achieve them one after the other.
Time management and plan
Well, I have to include this because we all work with time and there is time for everything. In the business world, you need to perform, a task successfully within a specific time.
However, you should know how your body reacts towards work activities. When are you very active at work and when do you have low energy for work.
Use this to also make out your schedule, you can decide to perform more task when your body reacts more actively and less task if it is not.
The main target is to do the job and come out successfully.
Take exercise more often
This is a very good point and I think that if you do not exercise more often it will affect your work productivity.
A regular exercise keeps the body fit for any task, keeps the brain alert and makes the immune system more active. A regular exercise also prevents the body from getting more stressed up, it provides us the ability to go on and on.
It reduces depression in the body, makes you look fit and refreshed always. So make out time for exercise and once you are done, come back and take a bath and be ready for your day.
Work break time (Working from Home)
This is another thing that can make you feel refreshed because the whole work is on the body, whether you are sitting down or standing up.
The body needs to take a little breaks at intervals and ten you return back to work with more
So make out a little time for breaks but not the whole day. Your work hours should be longer than your break time.
This is one of the things a good employee should be doing sometimes. Working with target and coming out with more rewards.
Challenge yourself to perform certain task within a period and make it hard sometimes by going for the tough task. It will help to grow your level of experience in the job.
Distraction point (Working from Home)
This is another thing you should try to do to keep the body more motivated. Keep away from distraction no matter how tough it is.
Distractions can be in form of movies, listening to other people’s conversation and tying or chatting in social media platforms.
Do your best to keep away from such distractions and once you are done with work you can now set in to check on them.
