Not that long ago, working from home was seen as a novelty – then along came Covid-19 and now you’re considered an anomaly if you work anywhere other than your kitchen table!
As a VA, remote working has always been par for the course and as such, we’ve got some top tips for how to make it something you enjoy, rather than resent.
- Create your workspace – whilst some people might be lucky to have a designated office space, not everyone has the luxury. It is however important for your productivity to create a comfortable space that allows you to focus on your tasks.
- Have a routine – yes, it is nice to work in your PJs, but after a while it can affect your motivation and ultimately, your output. Set your alarm, get up and dressed, have a coffee and then crack on.
- Don’t work outside your own boundaries – it is tempting to just check your emails one last time before bed but you need time to unwind. Stick to your normal office hours if you can and don’t lose sight of your work-life balance.
- Catch up with people – working from home can be lonely. With more people than ever working from home, we all miss having a chat – so ask your colleagues how they are, or schedule something in, perhaps schedule a virtual team get-together to let off some steam.
Whether you’re working from an office, your kitchen, bedroom or even you’re shed, don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you need additional administrative or marketing support – drop us a line to see how we can help you to build your business.
