Top 7 Tips to Help You Work from Home

by Nina Christopoulou

Working from home is preferable to commuting all the way to work or even your uni’s library. In order to be effective, though, discipline is key! We have gathered our top tips and tricks of the trade to help you out in this demanding process…

7. Set your goals

Working without a boss keeping you in check is definitely not as motivating. Time to become your own boss: set your goals for the week or the month, and keep them visible – hang them on a wall or even your fridge. This will help you stay focused!

6. Make a to-do list (duh!)

As obvious as that one may be, it is easier said than done. So our tip is having your dedicated “To-Do List” notepad on your homemade work station, so you can see it and pick it up every single day. That feeling of crossing stuff off your list is unbeatable!

5. Set the mood

As silly as it may seem, it’s the little things that make the difference. Anything from mood boards, to scented candles or Alpha Wave YouTube videos that help with concentration, there are always things you can do to boost your productivity levels. Do a little research, and come up with the best ambiance for you.

4. Veto your weekends

Weekends are sacred, and should stay that way. Well, except for deadline periods obviously! But when it comes to working from home, taking that well-deserved weekend off is mandatory so that weekdays can be productive enough.

3. The early-bird catches the worm

There’s a reason that this saying exists. Make a habit of waking up at a more or so set time, before 10 o’clock, and help yourself organise your life and consequently your work a little better…

2. Seize the daylight

Sunshine in London is not as often as one would want. Therefore, it would make sense that when the sun’s out, you should be too! One of the benefits of creating your own schedule is being able to customise your breaks – so make a habit of chasing the sun and you will feel the difference in productivity levels.

1. Keep in mind your me-time

Working from home can easily go over-board once you go into full-blown work craze! Don’t forget that me-time is important, especially given the time you will spend locked up at home. Do your best to socialise, take that gym break and enjoy yourself (preferably outside of the house!).
