26 Essential Tips For Working From Home

 

Many companies are switching to a remote-only working policy during the coronavirus outbreak. If you’re unaccustomed to the work-from-home life, this can prove challenging. 

 

Here at SaneBox, our team is 100% remote, and we’ve learned some things over the years. For those new to remote working, don’t fret if the constant news cycle and social media updates about COVID-19 are causing you to be less productive then you’d like to be. 

How To Be Productive When News, Fear, And Social Media Is Causing You Anxiety

 

It has become increasingly difficult to stay productive and focus on work while the threat of COVID-19 looms. In these uncertain and confusing times, when there seems to be a news development every five minutes, it can be nearly impossible to pull yourself away from obsessively checking social media or turning on the news. 

 

A recent survey from the American Psychological Association found that more than half of Americans say the news causes them stress, and many report feeling fatigue, anxiety, or sleep loss as a result. The survey goes on to say that one in ten adults checks the news every hour, and 20% of Americans report constantly monitoring their social media feeds, which is a constant reminder of the chaos we’re feeling right now. 

 

Of course, it’s easy to understand the spiral of stress we’re all experiencing. Cabin fever and general fear are all understandable side effects of the current situation, and it’s essential not to beat yourself up about how you’re feeling and reacting. Mental health is just as important as physical health right now, and even the World Health Organization is urging people not to check news and updates that often:

Remote work company policies are becoming increasingly popular. This option allows employees to work when bad weather, childcare needs, or illnesses come up, instead of taking time off. With these policies in place, employees report higher job satisfaction and productivity. However, this setup is not without risk. Working from home increases the risk of cybercrime against a company, and the distraction of home life can cause drops in productivity. However, there are ways to negate these risks.
