Working Remotely

The Quick Start Guide

A few tips on how to start working remotely

Start Your Day With a Morning Routine

Set the pace for a successful day by committing to a morning routine instead of rushing to your desk immediately after waking up. Here are a few suggestions to help you with creating your own routine.

  • πŸ‘‰ Do not use your electronic devices first thing in the morning.
  • πŸ‘‰ Make your bed. This kicks off your to-do list with your first finished task.
  • πŸ‘‰ Drink a cup of water to hydrate your body and wake you up.
  • πŸ‘‰ Go out for a light jog or workout for 15 minutes. Get your blood flowing.
  • πŸ‘‰ Take a shower.
  • πŸ‘‰ Have breakfast and maybe grab a cup of coffee.
  • πŸ‘‰ Change your clothes. Do not spend the day in your pajamas.

Don’t try to work 8 hours without taking breaks. It’s not healthy and productive. Take regular breaks away from the computer and do eye exercises. You can go for a walk to clear your mind, get some fresh air and natural light.
