Smart Habits For Working From Home
With the effects of the Global Pandemic becoming very present in our lives, many businesses have been forced to transition their model into a work from home option. While, for many, this can sound like a dream come true, working from home adds it's own stresses and complexities into our already busy lives!
One of the greatest challenges in our personal and professional lives can literally be balancing both, and if you've transitioned your business into a work from home model or you're now noticing that your lounge is becoming your office, you probably also know first hand the anxieties of parenting while working from home, or the logistics of keeping a team and business functional through these challenging times. It seems the commute times and terrible traffic have been replaced with keeping the kids occupied or trying to avoid conflict with our nearest and dearest!
"Life has changed: Some people are sitting at the kitchen bench where they eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. They've got a flatmate at the table behind them and someone else on a couch and that’s their office. It’s different from how we would normally go to work or when we come home from the office and enjoy that space. Suddenly we have different stresses and pressures and our emotions become reactive, and it's not nice for anyone.
There's a concept which I call setting up locational anchors. Athletes do it. Performers do it when they put on a certain piece of clothing or they pick up their instrument, or take a particular breath and look at the audience. They switch themselves onto a particular mindset which is known as anchoring. We can do that at home even if we are in a small space.
It helps to differentiate between your workspace and work time, and downtime. If you've managed your state well, you are more productive, less reactive and can close off your work, as you've worked out what you need to do tomorrow.
It is vitally important to do this, to give our brain space to rejig itself."
- Catherine Connolly

Not only will this conscious behavioural practice enhance your productivity, it will also allow you to have space to not always be thinking about work, giving your brain the ability to process information more efficiently, reduce stress levels and give you the confidence of knowing that everything is sorted and under control.

"Now it's vitally important to get the balance right, to maximise how our brain can more effectively work. Sometimes people may spend hours, upon hours, upon hours working with no break and yes, they're busy, but the level of productivity is probably far less effective and efficient as if they did it in that increments where your brain's more 'on'. Repetition of new habits creates better results."
