Strategies For Healthy Working At Home

With many people facing up to working from home for a lengthy period of time, it is understandable for people to look for ways to improve their working process. You should look for ways to improve your efficiency, but you also want to work healthily.

At Global Solution Services, we understand the importance of developing strategies for healthy working at home. We offer a range of training courses and classes, and some of these classes are aimed at improving how you work at home.

Try to develop a consistent sleep schedule

Consistency and developing a solid routine will be helpful for you. W. Christopher Winter is the author of The Sleep Solution, and he said; “When you’re suddenly at home more, sleep schedules can take a hit as you try and adjust. But sticking to the same wake time and bedtime are crucial aspects of self-care, because those contribute to sleep quality. Without that, you may find yourself groggy throughout the day, or with big fluctuations in energy.”

Making sure you are productive during working hours is best for you, and your business.

Get dressed and be professional

Working from home is different from working in an office. There is nothing wrong with taking a more casual approach to how you dress, but you need to make some effort. Take a shower, get dressed and prepare yourself for a shift of work.

Christine Carter, PhD, is a noted sociologist and she says; “You don’t need to be in a full work outfit; you can still keep it casual. That’s one of the nice things about working from home. But prepping for your day is a signal to your brain that it’s not a weekend, and you’re not sick. That will get your mind ready for the workday.”

Create a workspace

Having a space where you work, and only work, is crucial for helping you to be productive. Also, having a workspace helps you develop a better standard of work-life balance.

Sharon McDowell-Larsen is a physiologist and coach, and she said; “You don’t need to scrub it down, but there is a certain feeling that comes with having an organized, designated space for working. That gives you a sense of caring for yourself, and by extension, caring about your work.”

Make time for breaks during the working do

Allocating time to take a break and do something else helps you be more productive.

Dr. McDowell-Larsen says; “Being as intentional as possible is very helpful when you’re working from home,” she says. “That might mean working on a different schedule than you had in the office. That might mean you have to schedule breaks at specific times. Play around with it so you’re building your day in a thoughtful way from the start.”
