Since the onset of the pandemic, many have been working from home. Some find that they do not enjoy it as much as they once did. It is easy to lose motivation when you are in the home environment. If you suffer from work-from-home fatigue, don’t worry, you’re not alone! To put some pep back into your virtual step, we put together a guide on how to stay enthusiastic about remote work.
Change your scenery
If you telecommute, occasionally changing your scenery is helpful. After all, being in the same place around the clock can get boring. It doesn’t mean moving your dedicated workspace to Thailand for a year, but simple changes, such as upgrading your workstation, could improve your mood.
Alternatively, taking your digital nomad self somewhere like a coffee shop or coworking space is a great way to change the redundancy vibe. Furthermore, if you worked for Achieva’s Member Service Center, you would have the flexibility to stop by the office a few days of the week.
Get some face-to-face time with coworkers
It might be hard to see your peers if your employer is a remote-first company. However, getting some in-person face time with coworkers can be a refreshing change to an otherwise monotonous work schedule. Face time with colleagues does not necessarily have to imply going into the office. You can always ask a group of work friends for coffee, drinks, or dinner (which will probably be more fun!).
After working from home for a while, the line separating work and home might become a bit blurred. It is vital for your productivity matrix that this line remains carved in stone at all times. You need to ensure that you’re not spending your work time doing dishes, vacuuming the house, or sitting on the couch watching Netflix. Additionally, on the opposite end of the spectrum, you do not want to use every waking hour doing job-related tasks.
Improper balance is not sustainable. Therefore, having a set schedule of when and where you will work is essential for keeping a healthy work-life ratio.
Overcoming work-from-home fatigue
If you’re suffering from work-from-home fatigue, chances are it’s only a temporary rut. Introducing something new into your everyday routine will help break the monotony. We hope this article has provided some inspiration to overcome remote redundancy. Being in the house all the time is a challenge. Use this article to switch things up!
