The growing trend of working from home shows no sign of slowing down in the new year. LinkedIn just named “time” as the perk professionals will want most going into 2020 in their annual trend forecast. Experiments with a 4-day work week have already started at Microsoft and may soon grow in popularity. Set yourself up for success by making sure your apartment is optimized for working from home. Here are some tips to get you started:
1. Designate Your Workspace
Choose a place in your apartment that will be primarily used as your workspace. Keeping all your papers and materials in one dedicated area will help you feel organized and prevent distractions like the T.V. The same way your bed should be used mainly for bedtime to promote healthy sleep patterns, your work area should promote healthy work habits. Bonus tip: If you’re going to be video-conferencing make sure that your workspace has a background free of clutter.
