Tips For Working From Home

Working from home can be both exciting and challenging. On the one hand, the 20-second commute from your bed to your desk can’t be beat. On the other hand, your boss still hasn’t figured out Zoom and what should have been a quick 20 minute meeting, has now taken 2 hours. It may take some getting used to, but our team at Vancouver Extended Stay has compiled our top 3 tips and tricks to make you a work from home champion.

Get Changed

Listen, we are not saying you have to put on a full suit and tie every morning (although, kudos to you if you are up for that!) but even changing from your “night PJ’s” to your “day PJ’s” is going to make you feel fresh and recharged. It also allows you to mentally note the shift from leisure to work and fully concentrate on the task at hand.

Your Bed Is Too Comfy

We get it: The best part of working remotely is not having to commute. However, picking a place to do your work where you can’t take a midday 2-hour nap is key to being more productive. Create a space in your home that you can designate as your office. This will make it feel more like going to work in the morning and minimizes outside distractions.

Social Media Detox

With so many distractions and no boss to check in with you, it can be easy to fall into the social media black hole. During work hours, log out of Facebook, Instagram, and any other apps that you don’t need for work. This will help you concentrate on the work at hand and not get sidetracked with endless scrolling.
