Is working from home new to you? If you’re finding it a bit taxing getting up for work every morning – knowing you’re not actually going into work – we understand. For some people, working from home is a dream come true. No commuting, no having to get dressed and no having to buy a lunch!
Then again, for many others, not being in the office means not being very productive. Are you bored with having your home and the office as the same place? What can you do to make working from home more fun?
What space in your home do you dedicate to work? Decorate it! Make it fun and festive. Create an environment that you enjoy working in. If your office just happens to be the corner of your bedroom or even your bed, don’t hesitate to change it up during the hours within which you’re working.
Create a name plate and place it on your desk as you would in your office. Hang some pictures of family around your workspace the way you would at your job’s regular location. Put some fresh flowers or a plant on your desk. Get a comfortable, ergonomic chair. Softly play your favourite tunes in the background. Whatever it takes to make your work day pleasant – do that!
Could you do with a 15-minute walk? Don’t hesitate to get some fresh air at different points throughout the day. Have fun on your lunch hour. Some workers-from-home eat their meals in front of their TVs with their favourite comedies on the screens.
Like with any job, taking a break to refresh and recharge is necessary. Get in a good laugh, stretch, dance and/or do some light exercising intermittently throughout the day. For some people, working at home can be a trap, of sorts. Spending too much time in your home office can sometimes make you unmotivated and even depressed. Don’t let that happen to you!
Few things are more frustrating that having to use outdated or obsolete equipment. If you don’t have at home what you have in the office, a work day can be a very frustrating experience. This is why MeloTel so proudly offers North American business owners cloud-hosted Commercial Phone Services. They do away with landlines and instead, use the internet to connect you with the rest of the world.
That way, your physical location doesn’t matter. You can make and take calls using any device you wish using your business extension. Your callers will be none the wiser. With our phone services, you also have the ability to download the free Cloud Softphone app which basically turns your mobile device into your portable business phone. It’s an excellent way to make your office wherever in the world you want it to be!
