3 Ways to Beat the Work from Home Blues in Salt Lake City

It’s now easier to work remotely than ever before, so it’s little surprise that many professionals in Salt Lake City now work from home. But there can be drawbacks to using your home as your workplace. For instance, many professionals are less productive in a home office. Another common complaint: working from home just isn’t enjoyable.

At Office Evolution® Downtown Salt Lake City, several members of our coworking community used to work at home. So, we know how working from home can take a toll. The good news? We also know how you can make adjustments to improve your work-life if you work from home in Salt Lake City.

Here are three tried-and-tested ways Salt Lake City professionals can make working from home more enjoyable.

1. Create a Space That Works for You

Where you work has a big impact on how you work. Studies have shown that your immediate environment has a big effect on your job performance, your health, and your personal well-being. Unfortunately, many of us don’t think that deeply about the way our workspace affects us when we work from home.

One of the easiest ways to improve your work from home experience is to reconsider the design of your home workspace. Anyone who works from home in Salt Lake City should have a dedicated home office that they’ve designed to optimize personal productivity and well-being. Focus on features like ergonomic furniture, natural light, nearby greenery, and functional organization.

2. Do You Work From Home? Make Time for the Outside World

Loneliness is one of the most common complaints from those who do their jobs from their homes. A lot of people don’t realize how isolating it can feel when you work and live inside the same four walls. After all, working from home means working alone. It also means you sometimes spend entire days where you never go outside your front door.

To avoid the isolation felt by many home-based professionals, you need to make a concerted effort to make time for friends and fresh air. Reserve space in your calendar for evenings with colleagues and personal friends. Make time in your workday for a brisk walk outside. Take advantage of weekends to spend more time outside your home.

3. Try a Shared Workspace

The easiest way to make working from home in Salt Lake City more enjoyable is simple: work from home less. At Office Evolution Salt Lake City, our shared workspace is the perfect place to focus, get more done, and reap the benefits of a thriving professional community.
