Working from home can be a big adjustment for some people. Make sure you take the time to develop a routine that is going to work best for you. Below are a few tips to help you set up helpful habits and look after your mental wellbeing while you are working remotely.
Take time to set up a dedicated work area
Clearing some space in a quiet area to set up a consistent workspace will allow you to focus and help separate your work life from your personal life at home.
Connect with your colleagues
Social interaction is an important part of maintaining your wellbeing. Set up online meetings and catch ups with your colleagues or call friends and family on your breaks so you don’t feel isolated.
Make sure you take your breaks
