 COMFORT ABOVE ALL

Make yourself comfortable. It’s all about finding a balance between work and home. You’re not quite at work, and you’re not quite at home.

TO CREATE A WORKING SPACE FOR THEMSELVES  

If home office is going to be a long-term process, define a space in your home dedicated to work. Don’t find yourself in the middle of the kitchen, between two washing plates and breakfast leftovers. You need to concentrate, and this also requires a place that is as neutral as possible. Working on your couch means taking the risk of not being able to focus. It’s better if you can have a desk, possibly a separate room. Try to eat your meals in a different space to create breaks and psychologically dissociate various activities.

Don’t forget that the written word doesn’t always facilitate exchanges and can lead to misunderstandings or misunderstandings. To maintain good relations with colleagues, it is preferable to have a conversation by videoconference or telephone, where orality makes it easier to express a state of mind or an intention, for example, every morning.

 ORGANIZE YOUR WORKING TIME TO BE EFFICIENT

Working from home is more complicated than it seems. Your home is full of distractions: Netflix, video games, reading… To stay focused on your work, set goals, and make to-do-lists to be as efficient as possible. Take breaks from work to eat or relax. Make a clear distinction between these moments and those dedicated to working.
