For those fortunate enough to be able to do their job remotely, ‘WFH’ has become the new normal working set-up during these unprecedented times.
Here at Amuse, our team are working from home where possible – we are adapting our working methods in order to continue functioning as best we can.
It can definitely be a challenge to be productive at home and keep yourself focused – so we wanted to share our tips from our team on how they work from home effectively.
Organise a dedicated workspace
“Once I set myself up for work , I like to make sure my surroundings feel calming and light.
I usually light a candle, organise my notepad and set-out my tasks for the day and just make my table feel as if it were my desk at work
– in the most aesthetically pleasing way. It definitely helps me feel be more productive”.
Lena - Europe Brand Manager
Make the effort to get dressed
“It sounds very simple but as much as I want to stay in my pj’s, getting dressed in the morning even if it’s into loungewear, really makes a
difference with feeling productive! You just feel more accomplished and have a proactive approach towards things”
Alexa - PR and Communications
Make sure to set aside a break
“Taking regular breaks helps me to stay focused throughout the day. At the moment I’ve been taking online yoga classes or doing a quick hiit workout to change awareness of my body and mind. Not only does this give me energy but it makes doing work more achievable and manageable”
Doris - E-commerce Manager
Set yourself a schedule
“It’s really important for me to set a schedule or routine, so that I hold myself accountable. I find that by doing this means I’m less distracted and feel more focused on completing tasks. I love starting my work morning with my tea ritual – taking a moment to myself in the garden and
creating the right positive mindset for the day”
Camille -Business Analyst
Check in with your team
“I find it useful and encouraging to check in with my team regularly.
Being able to bounce ideas off one another and keeping each other focused during this difficult time has made a huge difference whilst working from home.
Whether it’s to discuss our tasks for the day or just to share a positive affirmation – it’s makes WFH for the foreseeable future so much more bearable”
