Try to find a dedicated and comfortable spot to work that you can associate with your job and leave when you’re off the clock — that means get off the couch, and definitely out of bed. This will help you stay on task with fewer interruptions.
Have a Plan
When working alone, keep a more structured daily schedule than usual. Time spent alone is better if it’s structured. You can include multiple breaks throughout the day.
A major perk of working from home is ditching the commute. Use this time in the morning for a workout, self-renewal, or family time.
If you do not have any greens in your designated work from home location, consider adding some indoor plants to create a more inviting and creative space.
Find a Buddy
To help fill the socializing gap while working remotely, find a colleague you can hit up when you’re feeling the need to chat with someone. Alternatively, buddy up with a friend who works elsewhere and is going through the same experience.
