1. Revitalize Your Workspace
One unfortunate — but easy-to-fix — drawback of working from home is workspace design. If you’re like most people, your home office was either cobbled together when you switched to working from home, or designed before the switch and never meant for full-time work. These days, there’s a good chance you don’t have a home office, and simply pop your laptop open wherever seems most comfortable.
It’s easy to underestimate the affects of your work environment. But studies have shown it’s tied not just to your productivity, but also your health and happiness. So revitalize your workspace following principles of healthy and productive design. Choose ergonomic furniture, take advantage of natural light, use plants to boost mood and air quality, and build a space that works for you.
2. Make Time for Socializing
Working from home almost always means working alone. Once upon a time, that might not have seemed like such a bad thing. But now that you’re a few weeks — or a few months — into doing your job from home, loneliness could be impacting your morale, your mindset, and your overall productivity.
Some of us have trouble admitting we feel lonely, but if you work from home in Lone Tree, it’s worthwhile to find more time in your calendar for friends and colleagues. Meet up with colleagues for lunches on workdays. Make time to go out in the evenings. Plan fun events on the weekends. Even if you’re not a social butterfly, a walk outside every day can help you avoid the sense of claustrophobia that working from home sometimes creates.
3. Try a Shared Workspace
Often, the best cure for the work from-home blues is a separate professional space. You don’t need to make the switch full-time. Some days, you might just need a change of pace to be your most productive. On other days, you might prefer the energy of working among other people. Sometimes, you might simply need access to equipment or resources you don’t have at home. That is where co-working with Office Evolution Lone Tree come in.
In these cases, a shared workspace can be the perfect solution. At Office Evolution Lone Tree, our co-working spacegives local professionals a place where they can optimize their productivity, with access to key professional amenities.
