working from effectively

Working at home being the new normal has affected people a great deal all around the world. So many of the people have been working from home more than ever now. Social distancing has become very important as the cases have hiked all across the world. Working remotely has its own perks as well as disadvantages. Increased productivity is a perk of working from home, but loneliness and communication difficulties are a real hazard. In order to make working from home successful, here are some basic guidelines that you will need. Some of the do’s and don’ts for successful remote working are explained below:

Do maintain regular contact with your team

Even if you are working from home, it does not mean you have to do it all by yourself. One has to maintain regular contact with the employees if one is the employer. It is vital to maintain the work discipline even staying at home. If you are an employee, even then you must maintain contact with the fellow workers and the employer as well. Opting for an online call or video call is a good thing to stay in contact with the employees or fellow workers. This way you stay in contact with the workers as well as maintain the work atmosphere.

Do not snack all day

Being away from the office does not mean that you have to snack all day. It is one of the unhealthiest habits to just eat all day staying in bed. Staying at work and eating while roaming about is different but staying at home and eating all day is not healthy at all. One good thing is to buy healthy food and eat it when you need it!

Do dress appropriately

Spending the day at home does not mean you have to not dress up. When you start working for the day, you must get dressed and then work. It helps with productivity rather than staying in your sleeping pajamas. Work from home requires dressing up because you will have to attend meetings over conference calls. You must look presentable while in a meeting otherwise it does not leave a very good impression.  

Do invest in the right equipment

It is very important to invest in the right equipment when you are working from home. It is the responsibility of the employer to provide you with the right equipment that facilitates productivity as well as lets you work smoothly. Set up your home office in the best possible way and you will enjoy working rather than staying dull and getting bored. Get yourself a decent desk and chair that accelerates productivity as well. A clean computer will also add it to your productivity.

Do not work from anywhere

A change of scenery is important to boost creativity and to have a routine. You should not just start working from anywhere. It is important to stay dedicated and stay where you can get in the work mode. Do not start working from the bed or couch or from anywhere you sit. It is not considered good for the professionals.

Do decorate your workspace

Working and a workplace decorated well go hand in hand. Not only decorating the workplace helps a lot but it does help you to stay focused. Whether it’s pens, pencils, or your task list, you must buy things that help to add up to the productivity. Buy fairy light or add sticky notes to the walls. These things always help to enhance productivity. Investing in a good desk lamp is also a good idea. So decorate the place you are working in, instead of working mindlessly.


Concluding, these are the small things that will help you to work efficiently from home. Pandemic has already affected a lot of us and most of the workplaces have suffered a lot due to it. We as inhabitants of our earth can only strive to make things better instead of making them worse than they already are. It’s time that we become responsible and accept the fact that we as individuals owe, individually.
