Our Top 5 tips for working From Home

Our Top 5 tips for working From Home

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to the lives of millions of people across the world. Due to the ‘Stay at Home’ advice given by the UK Government, everyone has been forced to quickly adapt to different ways of connecting, learning and working.
Times of uncertainty can affect the status quo and many of us will be working from home for the first time in our lives. That alone can seem daunting.

Here are Midway Sky’s Top five tips on getting through the lockdown, whilst working from home:

Morning Routine
It’s really important that you stick to your usual routine during your working week. Get up at the same time each day, make sure you dress for work and are ready to start at the usual time.
Regular Hours
Try to work your contracted hours. This will help you maintain your routine and enable you to carry out your job effectively.
Ground rules for all
This is a difficult one, as many of us will be working from home with children and/or other adults sharing the same space. It’s important that everyone knows where you will be working daily, and to keep noise at a respectful level. If working with younger children at home, speak to your employer and perhaps a slightly different schedule could be agreed, enabling you to work without interruption.
Schedule Breaks
Remember to take regular breaks, as you would during your normal working day. Research has shown that taking regular breaks helps productivity and creativity.
Team meetings
It’s important that you keep in touch with your colleagues, teams and managers. There are a wealth of online resources that facilitate video or voice conferencing, such as Skype, Zoom and House Party.
