While many workers have been back in the office there are still many of us working from the home office, which may include an old wooden chair and dining room table, if you’re lucky enough to have an office desk and chair already set up feel free to miss the first tip on this list.
Get a good office chair and desk
This may seem obvious to some, but many are roughing it out on substandard chairs and desks which are uncomfortable and will inevitably lead to back and neck strain. Make the investment in good furniture and your body will thank you for it.
Buy an Amazon Dot
This one is from personal experience – being able to control your music, lighting, set reminders and a stop clock with just a voice command makes a useful tool for daily tasks, it makes you feel like you have someone around even when it’s just you stuck to your laptop.
Organise food and drink
If you organise your lunch in the evening it’s a lot easier to get through the day than trying to make something last minute. So whatever you have for dinner, make a little extra for the next day – you will thank me for it.
Get a good sleep
This isn’t directly related to your work schedule, but it’s important to get a good sleep so you’re awake throughout the day even without that 10th coffee. Being tired makes working from home more difficult to focus and stay disciplined, so start getting to bed earlier.
Take short breaks
Unless you’re a cyborg you will notice that constantly staring at the screen can get tiring and lead to headaches, tired eyes and overall fatigue. To combat this, try taking regular time away from the desk to stretch your legs and allow your body to move.
