Work from Home? these 50 Tips will help you find balance!

Working from home is convenient and has a lot of "pros" but it does present its own set of challenges.

To help, here are 50 ways to improve working-from-home that will optimize your productivity and preserve your personal life

Set a schedule with tasks for each day.  Whether you keep a list by hand or update a Google Calendar, time management and prioritization goes a long way.

Designate a workspace. Create a somewhat formal workspace environment that feels similar to reaching your desk or office.

Get dressed…but stay comfy. It helps to make you feel like you’re showing up even if you just move from your bed to your workspace.

Cuddle with your pet. Feel free to work with your dog or cat in your lap, if they won’t distract you. Bonding time with your pet is beneficial for both parties and it is one of the biggest perks of working from home.

Make it clear when you’re offline. Make sure your coworkers know when you’re unavailable or done for the day by sending a message, marking your calendar, or setting a Slack status.

Communicate frequently with coworkers. Just because you might be working from home by yourself doesn’t mean you should be isolated. 

Sit by natural light. Add some sunlight to boost your energy and positivity by sitting near a window, or bringing your computer outside.
