Create New Routines
If you’ve always worked in an office, it can be very disorienting to say the least to suddenly find yourself working from home. While before you had a much clearer separation between your personal and professional life—with your office, computer, colleagues, and supplies at your fingertips—being at home makes the work-life distinction much more ambiguous. For one thing, you have domestic distractions all around you, from the minute you wake up to the minute you go to sleep.
Within this non-business setting, you must carve out designated time to work on company projects and reach your deadlines. If you don’t proactively determine your work schedule, it’s easy to find yourself absorbed in household chaos — or if others are working from home with you, constantly pulled off-task into non-productive conversations.
