The TriYoung team has always worked remotely from our home offices. It was not an easy transition for some of us when we first started with TriYoung. We were used to travelling to work and interacting face-to-face with other people. Our team has great tips that helped with their transition.
- Maintain a schedule. It is easy to start earlier or stay later or even skip a lunch when working from home. This is not a good idea and can lead to burnout quickly.
- Have a designated workspace, preferably in a room where a door can be shut or away from common areas of your home. This will allow you to physically get away from work when you are not working.
- If possible, get out for lunch, even if its sitting in your backyard or going for a walk. Just getting some fresh air and seeing other people can be rejuvenating.
- Use video calls whenever possible. Interacting with other people face to face even though you are virtual allows you to feel connected.
- Act like you were going to work. Get up and get ready. We’re not saying wear your business casuals but definitely stay out of pajamas. We have found they can be too comfortable and keep you from feeling focused.
I hope our tips help make your transition to working from home a little easier.
