Six ways to successfully work from home

Posted on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 by International Coach Federation

1. Remove distractions. Depending on what distracts you, this can mean: silencing your cell phone, using a different Web browser for work-related searching,  keeping the television off, shutting the door, taking the kids to daycare, removing clutter from your workspace, etc.

2. Create rules (and stick to them). If you don’t live alone, this is especially important! Kids and significant others may equate working from home to being available throughout the day. It is very important to make rules and forge a daily routine that will keep your work-life balance in check.

3. Take breaks. Get up and stretch! Take a walk around the block, and just get away from your computer. Schedule lunch dates with friends. If you like to be able to do household tasks during the day, use your breaks to unload the dishwasher, start a load of laundry, or feed the family dog. Just don’t get distracted to handle larger tasks that need more time!

4. Make your space yours. Ensure that you have enough lighting, a good chair, a professional desk, and personal touches that make you enjoy using the workspace.  Any room can be made yours with a fresh coat of paint, new furniture, and/or personal touches (such as artwork, photos, etc.).

5. Don’t underestimate a remote office. If you need a change in scenery, and your work makes it possible, take your computer to a local coffee shop or library. Many places offer free Wi-Fi these days, take advantage of it and be refreshed at the same time.

6. Get dressed. If you have a hard time staying focused and on task, try dressing the part. Before you start working in the morning, remove the comfortable robe and slippers and change into something you would wear into an office. Primp as you would if you were leaving the house: hair, makeup, etc.
