In fact, change home clothes, work more effectively

"Sitting in front of a computer, why is your head blank?" 」

Working from home from a far distance, the most common situation is that it's hard to get into a focused "work mode" where you can immediately focus on upcoming meetings or work projects as soon as you get into the company. But working far away from home is short of peers, and you often feel like you're still resting. At this point, you can create a daily action to "turn on work mode", such as making a cup of coffee, reading the news of the day, checking e-mail, or taking off your home clothes, changing into outings, dressing up, grooming your hair, and so on, to make your body feel like "I'm ready."

If you live with your family, first state your work hours, define their work hours, and ask them not to disturb them during this time. Sometimes family members will feel that since you are at home, you should be able to spend more time tidying up the housework, or temporarily ask you to help get a package and so on, so it is recommended that you be able to communicate with your family before doing remote work (after all, it is the location of working far away, not a holiday), let them know when you are in work mode, Reduce unnecessary interference.

Plan your work today, eat at noon, catch your breath, and also take a breath.

Maintaining productivity is also a challenge. You may find that it usually takes only 10 minutes to get back to the email, which takes half an hour to get back, and just wants to browse today's news, but accidentally spends 20 minutes on Facebook and IG. God, today's work projects have not yet begun!

It is recommended to plan ahead for today's project, the project is time-consuming, if you can, modeled on the trip at work in the company, such as a few replies e-mail, a few days to prepare for the meeting lunch time, also don't forget to put in. If you are usually at the company, will reserve 5-10 minutes of breathing time for yourself, please write on the itinerary to remind yourself not to forget to catch your breath (really, really important!). Working from home is easy to ignore, but a proper break can keep you productive before you get back to your computer (extended reading: You should work on the tomato clock: focus and rest to be productive)

Set your personal status online and don't feel lonely

Make the most of online tools and interact with partners who need to collaborate. It is important to keep in touch with the flow of contact for working from home from a far away. Sometimes you can set yourself a time when you're working at home and accidentally into your own little universe, such as confirming a group message every 30 minutes, or turning on a bell notification so that you can easily find it.

In addition, you can also use online tools to let people know their current work status, such as women fans because of the use of slack as a communication tool, so often use the status bar, so that partners know their current work status, suitable for private communications to each other.

It's important to explain the status of your work in this way, not only to share information and work-related information online in real time, but also to provide emotional support. Usually in the company can be three or five times with colleagues to joke, chat, sometimes at home work feel lonely, can also spread a meme to colleagues smile, even if everyone works in different places, can still have emotional contact ah.
