How To Survive Working From Home

Coronavirus (Covid-19) has had a global impact. It has disrupted all our lives in some way or another.  Holidays have been cancelled, cruise ships unable to dock, the general public asked to self-isolate and many thousands of people now having to work from home.

Let’s be honest, working from home sounds like a dream.  You don’t have to put up with crowded commutes, you don’t have to sit in a noisy office, and you’re not tied to 9 – 5 office hours.

What you can do is have a leisurely breakfast, get your household chores done then start work. Heck, you can even work in your pyjamas if you like. Yahoo!

 If you’ve never worked from home it sounds like fun, right? 

 But, is that really the reality?

I’m not going to lie. It can be fun, initially. Especially if it’s only for a few days.  Most people can cope.  But if it goes on for weeks, things can become very different.

Here’s why. 

  • You can begin to feel isolated and lonely, especially if you live by yourself.
  • You may become distracted with other things like daytime TV or household chores.
  • You could be constantly disturbed by other family members, particularly younger ones.
  • You lose structure and your life becomes chaotic.

That’s only the human behavioural side, what about the practicalities of working from home?

How can you remain focused on your workload if you have young children or other dependants who need your attention?

How can you ensure your work remains confidential, especially in this new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) world?

How do you look after your own health and wellbeing?

To help you get set up quickly I've created a cheat sheet full of hints and tips which covers the basics, including:

  • Work space set up
  • Client confidentiality
  • Time tracking
  • Workload management
  • Planning your day
  • Health and wellbeing
