If you’re like me, you enjoy a lifestyle that allows you to live and work. You may even enjoy working from your apartment. Now, working from home takes a lot of self-discipline, but there are ways to make every work day a productive one.
I want to share a few tips on how to stay productive when working from home.
Create A Work Space
The first thing you want to do is create a work space in your apartment. You can place it in a corner, nook or in front of a window. A desk, chair and file cabinet are ideas of the furniture you can add to your work space. Just keep in mind that you’re going to be spending every work day in this space, so make sure it’s a space you’re going to enjoy. A motivational poster or greenery never hurts when decorating.
Use Community Amenities
When you need a break from your work space, head over to the business center, which usually includes computers with a copier and fax machine. Sometimes, the walk from your apartment to the business center is just what you need to feel motivated. If you live in this community, you can also check out the cyber cafe.
Take Breaks As Needed
I’m not afraid to work longer hours as needed, but I also take breaks as needed. You can enjoy lunch at our on-site picnic area or go for a walk around our exterior. If you need to run an errand, the fresh air could do you good. A break helps you to recharge your batteries so you can get back to work.
Do you have your own routine for staying productive? You are welcome to share your tips, as you may be helping another resident with their own work routine.
