6 tips for working from the home office

Especially since 2020, working from a home office is no longer a rarity. However, the radical change was not only a challenge for employers, but also for employees. Ad hoc productivity from the office also had to be maintained from "the couch at home". Besides children, pets and the household, this was a real challenge.

Therefore, today we would like to present 6 tips that will make it easier for you to work from your home office and increase your productivity.

1.keep your routine as far as possible

For example, set yourself fixed working hours in which you do not focus on other things. After that, you can take care of the other things around you in small slots.

2. the workplace

Ideally, you should have your own room where you can set up your office. If circumstances do not allow this, find a fixed place where you work. If possible, avoid working in different places so that you still feel at home in your home and do not always think about the office.

3. respect breaks

Set yourself fixed breaks where you take time to relax. This way you can continue your work rested and stress-free.

Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.

4. fight against procrastination

If you are more prone to distraction, block Instagram & Co. during working hours, for example.

To check yourself if you have been productive, make a priority list with realistic deadlines. If you can't meet them, check if the amount of work or other distracting factors are to blame.

5. keep in touch with your colleagues

Working from home means that you may not be up to date with important changes in your company or department. Therefore, consciously keep in touch with your colleagues. For example, organise a phone call with a colleague from your team once a week to exchange information.

6. finish work on time

In order to strengthen yourself for the next day and also to be able to switch off, it is important that you finish work on time. Especially in the home office, it is tempting to quickly go to the computer. However, you must learn to separate your private and professional life in order to maintain a good work-life balance.
