Creating a Productive Home Office

In line with imposing quarantine all over the world because of this Pandemic. Working at home has becoming a norm to majority of businesses and organization.

How do we shift from the typical office set up to working at home surrounded by too many distractions?

Let’s create a pleasant and productive home office set up.

  1. Chose your perfect spot.

You have to ensure that you put your self in a quiet spot where you can gather your thoughts and concentration to be productive working from home.

I suggest you move away from the television that makes you want to glimpse on the series your housemates are watching, or just near the fridge where the snack can easily distract you.

Get your self a nice lamp giving you enough lightning to pump that mood and ambiance of an office.

2. Don’t use the bed as your work space.

I know there are lots of bed tables that allows you to work while you’re sitting or slouching on the bed, but no, please don’t. Just the same with using your couch, those gives you too much comfort. One minute you’re working enthusiastically and the next thing you know you’re just chilling there or worst, sleeping. Good bye to do list.

3. Keep your work space clean and organize.

Since working at home allows us to practice paper less transactions, keeping a decluttered desk is expected.

Don’t be tempted to eat on your desk and leave everything you have used on the side of your table.

Remember that a neat workspace gives us clearer space to think and perform all the work-plans productively.

4. Move.

After doing above mentioned tips, I know, you’re too focused on your work to even listen to me, but hey! Remember to move and don’t be on the same sitting position while working. Be conscious on your posture and do some stretching.

5. Own that workspace.

We really don’t know how long this work set up will last, so might as well own that space. Put something personal that will cheer you up every working day.

Remember how you put those frames on your office desk or those tiny collectibles? It gives a lift right? Try doing it on your home office set up for the same pleasant experience.

Working at home does come with some perks, most of us are enjoying. It’s best to give back by being productive with a touch of excellence and your perfect makeshift office will help you do so.

My Intro to Virtual World

I have been working for 12 years in a corporate set up. Some of you have experienced this, getting up early, going to the office, heavy traffic, toxic bosses, corporate politics, going home late, another heavy traffic going home and then you just found out it’s time to sleep and tomorrow is another cycle. That is why I started to explore freelancing or home based community. I requested to join group pages and read, yes, that’s what I did, read post, read comments, visit pages and I realized there is more to freelancing. Well, competition on this field is rising up but hey, you only need your self to step up,how difficult will that be?

Equip your self

I enrolled to freelancing courses. I started with Search Engine Optimization then Email Marketing and Management. I was really enjoying this training which is very new to me especially the SEO part, oh it was very technical luckily there were helpful coaches in FVA Academy, the support system is very strong, I highly recommended them if you are looking for a training provider.

It was challenging and rewarding at the same time, the moment I finished the first two courses I enrolled to, I took up another course which are Social Media Management and Marketing and Customer Service. I was stuck at home due to this Covid 19 Pandemic and ECQ is ongoing, my eagerness to learn is swelling up, I needed to take the courses and so I did.

Now I am currently in the middle of Social Media Course and it was really fun, although I am not employed yet as a freelance Social Media Manager, but marketing your own brand takes a lot of pride. You just need to put your heart into what you are doing right now to make a quality output. Soon when I am ready and equip with all the knowledge I need, I will be officially marching head on to the freelancing world with a good branding and services you can never resist, I will have the freedom to manage my own time.
