Working from home might not be new for some of us but initially it was challenging for me. Work from home is when we usually work at our own place setting an atmosphere like office space but due to limited choices it is sometimes very challenging.
Working from home is increasing throughout the world due to this pandemic situation. Everybody wants the comfort, practicality for creating a virtual working environment. Based on my experience I would like to share some ways so that we could realise we can successfully fulfill our dreams even if it’s remotely. While working remotely it is tough to maintain the work-life balance, productivity and personal, business relationships.
How to be organised??
I’ve worked remotely for a few months but I am familiar with some people who are regularly into it. All of us are facing different challenges, not because we have to work from home it is due to our different personalities and different lifestyles.
Each one of us who works remotely needs to know how to work, where to work , how to adjust with office equipment and what are the differences we all need to maintain while working. We need to create a boundary between our personal and professional life as we all have equal right to enjoy while working.
We need to set some rules while we are sharing our work space. It becomes more tough for the ones who have children, it is really hard to look after kids coming home from school while you’re still working, cook for them when they are hungry.
We don’t need to stress ourselves while working, it is okay to use your breaks and take some fresh air. Never compromise with your meals. Continuously sitting in front of a system will make you tired. Not each one of us has a separate office in our homes and it is not realistic to have one when we are not aware.
As employee visibility is low during work from home we should not forget to interact with our colleagues and teammates. Being alone or being an introvert might be an obstacle during this time, we should come up with different improvement ideas and speak up if we want to be recognised because while communicating virtually it has become tough to be in the limelight. So it is a better option to be an extrovert and do something more than just working. Connecting with our teammates working remotely doesn’t have to be a challenge as you can regularly stay connected while scheduling casual connect and video calls during our shift time. The most important thing is to stay connected and feel happy.
At these times working from home is safe and we don’t have to feel stressed about it. No need to worry as this time can be a better opportunity to be with our family.
