Thinking about starting a new job?
It is common to have a friend, who has recently quit his job, and is now running a start-up company and working from home. And what about that student who ran out of cash and spends some minutes working, without leaving his dorm? What we do know is, that they all have one thing in common and that is a nice and motivational working environment in their own home. If you want to follow their path, keep reading these suggestions.
Have the technical issues in mind
First of all, you need a wifi connection. Nowadays it is almost unbelievable to be connected to the world, without using Internet. Thus, for your own sake, try to get a wide bandwidth connection so you will not lose valuable minutes - and also your patience -, trying, for example, to download a single document or to send an important one.
Besides Wi-Fi, it is recommendable to have a computer, laptop or tablet where you can just work from home. And, of course, you need an e-mail. It is important that you create an account only for working stuff. You can keep your personal e-mails and files in another account. And, please, name your account with professionalism; you can leave your nick-name for your personal account and friends.
If you think about the appliances and furniture you require for working from home, you will definitely need a good and ergonomic chair. Yes, I know what you are thinking. They cost much more than a regular one, but your body deserves it and we assure you, it is unlikely that you suffer from back pain using this type of chair. Remember that you are going to spend time working from home, so you need to be comfortable in your seat.
As you will need a pleasant chair, you will also require to have a desk or table where you can work from home. The key is to have an organized desk, so you do not feel overwhelmed for all the work you have to do.
Relax once in a while
In any job it is good to have some breaks, just to relax a little bit and continue with your job, and working from home is not the exception. Therefore, if you feel quite tired, you can have “exercises-breaks” in order to prevent stress and injuries caused by repetitive work. All you need is stand up and stretch your legs and arms.
Another way to relax is listening to your favourite music while you work from home. Now, you have endless ways to find your favourite song in YouTube. For sure, this will keep your mind out for work some minutes; so later you can continue with more enthusiasm.
Furthermore, if you feel alone working from home because you are only by yourself, do not feel frustrated or desperate; just call a friend or go for a walk around your neighborhood. This will put you again on the track.
