Get the essentials right first!
There’s little point in moving from a well set up office to a home office without setting it up right in the first place. Help make the move enjoyable and sustainable by making sure you have these essentials;
- Ergonomic desk chair
- Natural lighting
- Notepad and pens
- Noise-cancelling headphones (important for those zoom calls!)
- Coffee maker, fridge and snacks!
- Storage for filing
- Powerboards and power hubs
- Plants, art and anything else that inspires and calms you
Moving to a home office can feel exciting and liberating, but it can also be overwhelming and requires more self-control, motivation and strategy than you may anticipate.
As nice as those lovely sleep-in’s and cruisy mornings wandering from you bed to the coffee machine to your desk chair sound, they aren’t very practical or importantly, sustainable. To help shift your mind into “work mode” select a time that you would normally wake up for work and go through your motions or getting ready, having breakfast, making coffee. Choose a space in your house that is solely for work, that way when you enter that space you can consciously shift your mindset.
Keep your work in the cloud
Keeping your work in the cloud has so many benefits, from auto saving (Yah!) to live view supporting multiple people in the same document at one time. Working in the cloud most importantly means you and anyone you work with, can access it wherever you are.
