Given the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19, many of us have shifted to working from home. For some, it may be the first time working outside of a traditional workplace setting. Whatever the case may be, it is important to create a home office space that is both balanced and functional. Here are a few tips and tricks to get you started:
Separate Personal from Professional
Depending on your role, you may consider dedicating an area that is quiet and allows privacy. If you share your home with a spouse, roommate or if you have children, this element may be especially important.
Ideally, you should try to reserve a space that is secluded. Finding a balance between your personal and professional life can be tricky – especially if both happen under the same roof. If you live in a smaller space, try ordering room dividers or use a fold down desk that’s mounted to the wall.
Think about the daily tasks and responsibilities associated with your role. How much space do you need? Do you need more than one computer screen? Do you need a printer or filing cabinets? An additional chair for visitors or clients?
Start by making a list of what a typical day looks like from start to finish. What do you need to be productive and successful?
Now that you’ve found a space and identified what you need, keep it simple and remember to make your home office as functional as possible. It’s easy to find desk organization solutions at Target, The Container Store or Amazon. Stick to a budget and order a few items to make your home office your own.
