Working From Home – Tips To Improve Your Output While Working From Home

Getting up late, not taking a shower, a quick glass of milk and then settling down for work- still wearing pyjamas, this is a typical “work day” for many of us working from home. But while this might seem comfortable in the beginning and after the claustrophobia of working in a cubicle, might actually pronounce the freedom of working at home. Work, regardless of where you do it, deserves respect. Being systematic and organised goes a long way in not only improving your professional output, but also your personal output.

If you are working from home, you are on your own-this could mean loneliness.  Do not let this hamper your output, keep motivating yourself. Dedicate a few minutes each day to keep in touch with family and friends. If you are unable to actually see them, call them up or mail them. You will feel less lonely and will perform better. Another side to this same problem is that as you do not have anyone to report, your work quality may slacken. Avoid it by being a thorough professional. Be strict with yourself and expect nothing less than the best from yourself.

Have an area at home dedicated for work. Compare working from home to the hours as a student you spent studying. Where did you study better? ‘The study table or the bed’ While bed might have been comfortable, it would induce sleep while you would have been more alert at the table. The same holds true for work as well. If you have an area allotted for work, you automatically get into the “work mode” when you get to that area. You will be better focussed and less distracted.

Try to dress neatly even when working from home because this will make you feel more professional when you work. Try to minimize the distractions while you work. If you have to take care of a child, consider hiring a baby sitter for the hours you work. Do not think of the TV or the social networking sites. Set goals for yourself and take a break only if these goals are met.
