We understand that sometimes work must go with you or maybe you are choosing to travel across the country with different stops all while working remotely. It’s crucial to stay productive while doing so. With that being said, we’ve compiled a list of some helpful tips to help you stay productive while working remotely.
It’s important to create a schedule and stick to it! Don’t forget about those different time zones, they can really mess with that schedule, so make sure you know when to adjust accordingly. Working remotely with your family? That’s ok! Carve out time with them and let them know when you are working so they don’t disturb you.
Early Bird Gets the Worm
The early bird may get the worm but you can get some work done! It can be tempting to want to sleep in while being in such a beautiful area but remember that once that work is done, it’s time to unwind, relax and free your mind. Maybe you want to get up and get a few hours of work in before you take a few hours during the day off to go on an adventure, just make sure that you are using your time wisely.
Break it up
Don’t feel that just because you work remotely that all you have to do is work. Breaks are important if you want to stay productive during that focused time of work. Consider taking breaks regularly and give your mind and body enough time to recharge. Let’s not forget to stay hydrated as well, water is just as important.
Hold yourself accountable and start your day by making a daily to-do list. This can help you visualize exactly what needs to get done within that day. Pick yourself up a daily planner that includes top priorities for the day, other to-do items, and a breakdown of your hourly schedule to jot down those important meetings or calls you have. If you prefer to have a digital daily checklist, there are so many apps to utilize!
This goes along with having a schedule, office hours are important, and communicating that to the team you work with will help you avoid any conflicts in scheduling meetings or calls. Getting work done is important, but so is having time to relax and unwind. Create healthy boundaries that are acceptable for both your professional and personal lives.
