03. A separate area is ideal— not always available.
If you are fortunate enough to have a room that you could dedicate to working, No.3 of home working tips is to use it as a separate space to work. It creates clear boundaries, which helps ensure you don’t get your head bitten off by your significant other or house at the dining table, or to be accused of being a bore by house mates, depending on your situation. With a seperate working environment comes working boundaries. Again, another reason why you don’t look at the phone while you are in bed. I repeat, don’t look at the phone in bed on a home working day.
In regards to the environment, I have had success when it is clean, has some greenery in it, and if you are not expecting to be on the phone every minute of the day, having some relaxing classical on a low volume in the background. This is not a definition of my musical tastes, but rather a way to ensure the mind flows easily. I find this works for me, so give it a try.
