Not everyone can work from home. It takes a certain type of personality and skill set to be able to complete your tasks without distractions. But for those who can, there are many benefits that come with working remotely. You have more flexibility in terms of when you get up and go to sleep, you save money on housing costs, and your commute time is reduced (or eliminated entirely). However, there are some challenges that come along with working from home too, such as making sure you aren't tempted by distractions like playing video games or watching TV all day—which can happen if you're not careful! Here are some tips for staying productive while staying at home:
Try different co-working spaces
If you're going to work from home, you'll need a space to work in. You can use your home office for this purpose, but we recommend that you try out some co-working spaces as well. These are businesses that provide shared workspace for individuals who wish to collaborate and get things done with other people around them. In addition to meeting other people who are working remotely like yourself, co-working spaces have lots of other benefits:
Be careful of time zones and scheduling calls
One of the best things about remote work is that you can set your own schedule. However, you may find it difficult to manage your time when communicating with coworkers who are in different time zones. If you're working remotely from someone in another part of the world (or even just a couple hours away), make sure to communicate with them at times that are convenient for both parties. For example, if you're working in California and they're living in Boston, try scheduling calls during normal business hours (or early morning/late evening) so neither party has to get up early or stay up late just because they've got a call scheduled.
Stay in touch with your team
While you’re working remotely, it is important to stay in touch with your team. You can do this by using the same tools as them, such as a project management tool or a calendar.
For example, you might use Slack for chat and Trello for managing projects. While these are great tools on their own, they also have integrations with other services that can help make it easier to stay connected to your coworkers (and give you more ways to use them). For example:
Send your schedule to your team
If you're leading a team of remote workers, it's important to keep them in the loop about your schedule. The best way to do this is by sending a weekly or monthly calendar that includes your upcoming tasks and commitments. This gives your team a chance to get on the same page with you, and ensures that they're clear on what you're up to so they can make plans around it. You can also send status updates throughout the week as needed—be sure that everyone is aware when something changes in your personal schedule!
In addition to communicating with your team members on Slack or Trello (or whatever other tools may be in use), try sending regular emails letting everyone know how things are going. This can help build trust between all parties involved; if someone has questions about their responsibilities or priorities, they'll feel more comfortable reaching out directly instead of waiting until they feel like they need an answer right away
Update your team on your progress
Don't forget to decompress
It's important to communicate clearly, take breaks, and get out of the house.
You might think that since you’re working remotely, you don't have to worry about communication with your team. But that's not always the case. You still need to make sure everyone on your team knows what's going on and how they can contribute to projects.
If it's possible, try setting up video calls with people every day so you can chat about any issues or ideas that come up during the day. If video isn’t feasible, make sure to check in with the rest of your team via email at least once a week so everyone has a way of keeping in touch and feeling included in what’s happening.
It's also important for remote workers not only take breaks from work but get out of their houses as well! It might seem like staying home would be easier than trying to find a good coffee shop every morning, but isolation can cause stress very quickly—and there are plenty of problems associated with high-stress environments! So go ahead and do whatever you need in order stay healthy while working remotely: grab lunch at work every day instead of going home; go for walks around town; call family members; whatever helps keep things calm down outside work hours will help keep things sane within them too!
Working remotely is a great way to get more done while also spending more time with your family and friends. It may take some getting used to, but as long as you stay organized and keep up with your team, you'll be fine!
