How to Get Used to Working from Home
Many people dream about working from home but it is not as easy as it seems when you finally get the job that allows you to work from home. The main reason is because as human beings we are social creatures and the not having the immediate contact with someone else can take time to get used to, and the following are some tips that can help you deal with it.
Make a work area in your home, if you live in a house try to make it a separate bedroom or a study away from the kitchen and if you live in an apartment your work area may be smaller but still try to find a corner for it.
Get into routine and stick to a schedule: make a daily to do list and stick to a set amount of hours (if you do not have them already), for example if you decide to work from 9 to 6 or 11 to 8 but stick to the schedule, this is an important fact to create a work routine.
Get organized with a daily to do list or even weekly and cross them off as you are done with them, and this way you will feel more accomplished during the day.
Make emails and the phones your best friends, since it is the form of communications that you will be using. Make sure that your emails are clear and to the point and the same with phone calls.
