Working from home can report many benefits in the short and long run. Thanks to apps like Slack or Skype, employees can communicate and co-operate as easily and efficiently as if they were all working in the same place.
Clearly, one of the main advantages that working from home provides for you, is not having to commute to work every day. Not only will you avoid spending unnecessary time waiting in bus stops or driving around, but you’ll also be in a better mood than if you had to suffer through being stuck in traffic for over half an hour.
Now that you’re staying home to work, your productivity can increase significantly. Yet, just staying at home to work won’t immediately turn you into a productivity ninja. The key to being productive at home is to have an encouraging work station.
Your home office has to be a place free from distractions, and (if possible) away from most of the noise. This means finding a quiet corner to set up a comfortable desk where you can work. Try to keep your work station decluttered and bright. This will lift your spirits and keep your mind focused for a longer period of time. Remember, take breaks to stretch and drink water, but don’t go away from your home office for long!
