1. Choose a separate space for your home office
It can be a challenge to create a productive working environment when you are not in a typical office environment. When you work from a multi-purpose room such as the kitchen, living room or bedroom, you tend to get distracted and unfocused more easily. Therefore, it really pays to keep private and work life separate and set boundaries between the two. This way, you can go to another room during your lunch break and take your mind off work for a while.
2. Choose a bright spot for your home office
Lighting is often neglected when setting up a productive home office. Yet, adding light is perhaps the most important tip we can give you. Light helps us focus and dictates our sleep. Moreover, research has shown that a lack of sunlight can make us feel listless. So be sure to choose a room with plenty of windows and, bring some artificial light into your workspace as well for the winter months.
