Set Boundaries

One of the problems with working from home is that it can be difficult to switch off, the boundaries become blurred, and you can end up working longer days than you did before.

Ensure you divide up your space and have a dedicated space where you relax, to prevent you working from longer days.

Get outside - if you have a daily team meeting call or a call with a client then try using headphones and walk around the local park – you may find you’re even more creative and productive than you would be indoors.

Build time into your day to get outside, even as the weather changes, it’s important that we all have outdoor time, natural daylight and physical activity.

Build a supportive community around you, and schedule in regular calls with your family and friends, as social support can help in stressful circumstances.
