Waking up in the office
For anyone not used to working from home I understand it may feel odd, with quite a number of technical tools to get used to. Of course there are many people who don’t even have this option, but if you can and want to approach a way of work where your home is sometimes your office I have many tips and ideas. In this image I have collected a handful of these.
In some instances WFH (Work from home) can prove to be a boost in your work well-being!
The tips in text format:
Simple tips for working from home. För those who don’t need physical presence.
- Create a meeting room online and check in with co-workers every morning, e.g. whereby.com
- Use a good microphone and headphones for video meetings, or a headset.
- Use a chat program that works for everyone, e.g. telegram.org or wire.com
- Work together live on documents, e.g. via Dropbox Paper, or Trello for planning.
- Send sensitive files over encrypted channels, e.g. send.firefox.com
- Practice self-care. Drink water (have a pitcher on the table) and schedule breaks.
- Allow yourself to laugh a lot with your colleagues. This works over the Internet too!
- Have a set workspace, don’t (always) work in your pyjamas and start your day with a plan.
