by | Feb 24, 2021 | Uncategorised

The outbreak of the coronavirus has more people working from home than ever. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, people are encouraged to stay at home and many have made the abrupt shift to working from home as a way to prevent and lower the risk of infection spread.
While we would all love to have our own space and home comfort, for most of us, it’s just not practical to stay organised -keeping both family and work obligations in the right places, as the two realms mingle under one roof.
With endless noisy team calls, children vying for your attention while you’re working, the loss of structure and continuity: can be exhausting and stressful. If you’re one of those who are still working from home and want to be more organised to balance both work and personal life, this blog is for you. Read on.

Keep a Work-friendly Space

As there’s no shortage of distractions when working from home, from kids running around, talking loudly, watching television, or fighting with each other, to your household duties. It’s easier to get distracted and impossible to get anything done on time.
If you want to avoid falling into a rabbit hole, stay on track and get things done- creating a dedicated and effective workspace is essential. Ideally, you should have a room – where you can close the door and shut out the rest of the world, where the only thing you do is your work.
By doing so, finding focus and having a clear separation between work and home life will be easier as you will be able to work without any interruptions.
 Pro Tip:  The more you love your workspace’s environment, the more energised and inspired you will feel as you begin each day. Hence decorating your workspace with photo posters, Photo Calendars Or Prints is also a great way to boost your productivity level.

Add Comfort to Your Workspace

Spending more time sitting at your makeshift office area can cause sore neck, shoulders strain, painful legs and feet. So, it’s important to make sure that your workspace is comfortable.

One of the best ways to do so is by adding comfort and support to your back, arm or feet with a throw pillow. Adding a plump and plushy throw pillow to your seat can go a long way-making an ordinary chair warmer and even more comfortable when you’re working. Especially, if you don’t intend to buy a whole new chair, but still want to have a comfortable seating arrangement.

Also, since your home workspace doesn’t need to feel like a standard office-sprucing up the space with photo pillows that serve as both decorative and functional items is a breeze. Unique and stylish,  photo pillows will not only make your workspace look cosy and beautiful but also get you ready for a zoom call( making your space look pleasant).

Write Things Down

Being in control of everything you need for your job, having the right information at your fingertips and a clear plan of your daily task is an amazing way to be productive when you’re working from home
A good way to set yourself up is by writing down your action plan the night before and take notes when it’s necessary. Having a tangible framework for the next day ensures that you’re starting each day with a purpose, making it easier to set your priorities, keep you focused, and accomplish your task.
Also, keeping a written list of important dates, details and a to-do-list will help you to remember the things you’re accountable for. This will ensure that you’re successful at accomplishing all the tasks you’re aiming for.
Pro Tip: Having a separate book to list out all your work plans, lists and details is an easier way to keep you on track. So, getting a photo notebook that’ll help you to stay motivated to write your work plans will be a great way to go.

Create a Work Schedule

Working from home automatically comes with its own additional time management challenges, and without a proper schedule, it can be exhausting.

When you’re working from home, keeping a clear distinction between your work and your personal life can be hard, as you might unknowingly put more time into your work and reduce the time you spend with your family.

Which why you need to be strict with your start and end times-meaning that you have to try to work only when you need to work and use your breaks for personal development or to have a quick chat with your family.

To do so, creating a schedule that works for both your work and personal life is essential. In this case, a calendar can be a helpful tool to plan your time, keep you motivated and keep track of your activities.

Make Sure Everything Has a Home

Keeping your space tidy can be helpful in keeping you productive. Whether you’re having a table set up with monitors or a simple writing table, it is a good practice to keep it organised.
When your books, documents, stationeries or otherwise essential equipment is in one place, your workflow will get much more convenient and quick, as it will be easier to locate the things you need. Especially, during the frantic panic seconds before a zoom call where you need that notebook or a pen to hand to jot down something important.
In order to keep all your must-haves work essentials easy to find at all times and keep you organised, storing and labelling your things with stickers is quite necessaryBy arranging your things in a box, dedicating a space or labelling with stickers. you can also ensure that your space is clean and stress-free that makes it easier to focus on your work.

And that concludes our list of 5 ways to stay organised when you’re working from home. So if you find any of the suggestion helpful and need something stylish to keep you motivated and stay organised, feel free to visit the Pixajoy website.
