Working From Home


Setting healthy boundaries


Working from home promotes work-life balance, but it does not guarantee it. Even though it cuts out your commute and gives you flexibility with your time, it can still lead to anxiety, distraction and burnout.


Setting clear boundaries between your work time and your personal time promotes a healthy

work-life balance. 


Use Your Space


Even if you don’t have the luxury of a dedicated home office, there are still ways to separate your work area from your living space


Reserve a corner of your table or a favorite chair just for work


Use lighting to set the tone: the simple act of turning on a desk lamp sends a cue to your brain that it’s time to focus


Use Your Music


Create a mini-playlist to transition into and out of your workday


Studies show that music is effective in raising the efficiency of repetitive work


Experts recommend instrumental music and nature soundtracks for total concentration


Use Your Outfit


Dressing up for work (even when you work from home) can help you feel more focused and attentive


Changing your clothing before and after work helps define the boundary between company time and personal time


Use Your Schedule


Respect your time by cutting out distractions at home and by saying no to after-hours work


Don’t forget to take your breaks—going for a short walk is better for stress relief than reaching for another coffee or scrolling through social media


Even if your hours are flexible, try sticking to a consistent routine every day
