As COVID-19 continues to spread, many companies and universities have opted to keep their employees and students at home to try to keep them safe. However, many of these people have never worked from home a day in their life and are struggling to find ways to keep themselves focused. Therefore, it is important for them to find some type of routine to keep them on track.
Roompact actually went full remote over the last few months! Like many of you, many of us were not used to not going into the office when this started. So, we all had to find our own ways to separate work from our personal lives at home. We know, it can be extremely tempting to do housework or something fun in the middle of the day, but we also have to remember that our homes have now become our offices. Therefore, we need to treat it as such!
This article from The Washington Post’s Sarah Pulliam Bailey, is a great and realistic article on how to successfully work from home during this COVID-19 outbreak. She explains how she works remotely and gives tips on how to keep a work-life balance. We particularly love how honest she is in the article. At the end of the day, working remotely is all about ensuring your work is getting done from the comfort of your own home. We hope you find it as helpful as we did.
