Humans crave structure, regardless of whether they're working in the office or at home. As such, while you're working from home, it's important to create a schedule and stick to it. For example, if you're used to going to the gym before work, try to wake up early and get an at-home workout in before you start your workday from home.
Setting a schedule for yourself is just as important as setting one for those whom you're looking after at home. If you have children at home, try to mirror their school schedule as much as possible. For example, have them wake up at the same time that they would for school, eat breakfast and get ready. Then, have them work on activities for specific times, building in time for meals and going outside.
For other loved ones you may be caring for, try to incorporate their standard routine with your personal schedule. Consider eating meals together and taking breaks to go for a walk outside or spend time together.
When you're working from home, it's important that you create separate spaces for yourself and those you're looking after.
Ideally, your at-home workstation would be at a desk or table, away from any distractions such as the TV. Trying to work from your bed or couch can be challenging, since such locations are associated with sleep and relaxation. Creating this separation will benefit your productivity as well as your mental well-being.
Not only will this help you remain productive at work, but it will also help communicate to others that when you're in your workspace, you're working. Additionally, creating these separate spaces will further instill the schedule that you set.
