Extended teleworking can be stressful, especially during a pandemic. Be patient with yourself as you maintain remote work practices. With a little preparation and wellness in mind, working from home can be just as productive as working in an office. Here are some tips and tools to help you succeed at working from home. 

  • Establish a routine and stick to your schedule
  • Shower and dress as you would for a normal workday
  • Find a quiet, well-lit area; minimize distractions
  • Complete a home office safety check to ensure your setup is safe and comfortable
  • Step away from your workstation for five minutes each hour and take breaks to stretch
  • Regularly communicate with your manager about work priorities, deliverables, and your schedule
  • Video chat with colleagues frequently to brainstorm new ideas and stay connected
  • Maintain boundaries and unplug at the end of your workday
