Exercise Summary

More and more people are working from home. While this brings a lot of advantages, there are some things to be careful of too.

Benefits include not having office distractions, such as office ‘chats’, phone calls and meetings. You’ll also cut down travelling time, increasing time available for productive work and relaxation. You can be more flexible in how you approach work, and enjoy work more.

However,  it’s possible to get distracted by children,  pets or social media, and some people struggle to work without supervision. It’s also difficult to switch off sometimes, with apps and mobile devices meaning you can be always available.

Main Activity

Create working routine

1. Set up your work area. Try and use the same space for work, and if you can’t, set up some specific items that you always use. Avoid distractions – if only by shutting the door!
2. Limit your working time. Make sure you limit the time you spend on routine activities that aren’t particularly productive (such as emails – avoid responding to notifications) and set time aside for breaks.
3. Reward yourself. Create ‘rituals’ to celebrate finishing work, have a definite end / cut off point to working so you can differentiate between work and home life.

We suggest a frequency of: Daily
