Working from home can be really great at times, and not having to commute might be a huge reliever for many—but there can be a downside to being so close to work at all times! If you are caring for a family at home at the same time as working, having a good work-life balance can be a great way to maintain order in your life!
Always be sure to schedule and keep regular breaks on your calendar! Hold yourself accountable to always rest during your break time—also by removing yourself from your work environment you can feel refreshed and even more productive than if you hadn’t had your break!
Keep regular “Work to home / Home to work” transition times too! By maintaining a routine at home and keeping a schedule you can be sure that you do not underperform your job—but also that you don’t overwork yourself either! Create cues for yourself, like setting a coffee timer in the morning and a reminder on your computer to go off at the end of the day!
In short, keeping a healthy work-life balance during the Covid-19 pandemic can be easier than it sounds if you create boundaries for yourself and really try to keep on track when it comes to working from home! Give it a shot and you might be happier that you did!
