Thirteen Tips For Working at Home
Tip 1: Turn commute time into gym time
Turn commute time into home gym time. Suddenly, this makes traffic jams feel not so bad at all.
Tip 2: Put the music on
Put the music on. Loud. And maybe, just maybe, pull off a little
Tip 3: Adjust the seat and settings
Make sure your chair provides the right support and your monitor is at the right height.
Tip 4: Work from the couch
It is no crime to work from the couch every now and then.
Tip 5:Be rigorous with your schedule
Let go of the 9-to-5 but be rigorous with your schedule; your monkey brain will thank you for it.
Tip 6: Be less efficient with the coffee run
Be less efficient. For most, home is smaller than the office. Grab only one drink on your coffee run.
Tip 7: Smoke a cigar behind your desk
Coffee is so pre-WFH. Smoke a cigar. Behind your desk. Go on, indulge yourself.
Tip 8: Get into the state of flow
Use flow to increase your effectiveness. Lose all distractions and go deep on your backlog!
Tip 9: Go out and play
Cherish the extra family time. Once the labor is out of the way, go all out and play.
Tip 10: Make lunch work for you
Make lunch work for you! Boil 2 eggs, add Udon noodles and cooked veggies. Top off with some nori sushi. Yum!
Tip 11: Eat lunch outside
Keep your house tidy. Eat lunch outside.
Tip 12: Reward yourself
Work hard, eat healthy. On top of this, take a moment each day to reward yourself for accomplishments.
Tip 13: Reset the brain
Take regular breaks away from the screen. A little car ride can help to reset the brain.
Bonus tip: Laugh more often
Humor heals. Instead of using SnapCam, dress up for real in a meeting.
