Working from Home Tips

Like a lot of businesses the Chemsafety team is now working from home.  We're having to do a few things differently and we thought we'd share some tips on how to work from home.

One of the most important things to do when working from home is to ensure there is a distinction between work and home.  When you don't have to physically go into the office sometimes it can be hard to differentiate between them.  Below are some tips to help with that.

  • Set hours and wake up on time.  Try to maintain a regular sleep schedule.  Start work at the same time each day.
  • Try to create a space that is just for work, if you can. Unless you have nowhere else avoid working from the bedroom.
  • Break for lunch like you normally work.  Even better, video conference your colleagues and have lunch with them.
  • Shut down your laptop at the end of the day so you're not tempted to just tidy up that one last thing.
  • Continue to hold yourself accountable.  A prioritised to do list becomes your best friend, and can stop you feeling distracted or overwhelmed.  Ticking items off feels pretty good too.
  • Get some exercise daily.  Go for a stroll around the neighbourhood - just keep that two meter rule when you pass your neighbours.
