Have a dedicated workspace, even if it’s small
Working from home comes with a lot of flexibility. You can choose where to work, mostly also what time you start, when you take breaks and when you call it a day. However, it’s not as easy as it sounds to get into full work mode when you have the option to stay in bed all day and just open your computer to get things done.
Balancing a computer on your legs sitting on your couch or bed day after day can mess with your posture. It’s also highly likely that it won’t put you into your most productive work mindset as you’re normally doing other things like relaxing, reading a book, watching tv or sleeping when you sit on your couch or lie in your bed.
It’s hard to change your habit around using certain areas of the house, that’s why it’s so important to create a dedicated workspace in your home. A place, even if it’s tiny, that has all the elements you need to get your work done. Because as important as it is to have a place to sit down and work, it’s equally vital to be able to get up and leave it when you’re done and are ready to relax.
