The Best Way To Work Remotely

A remote lifestyle has its own rhythm. Being remote is more than just stepping away from the office.

 

Working remotely as a whole is about changing a culture, and a way of thinking.

 

If done right, working is a rewarding experience.

 

5 Tips for Designers and Teams on Working Remotely

 

1. Allow Yourself Some Time To Disconnect From The Internet.

 

 

Turning off your devices and crawling out of your wifi shell is the best way to avoid digital burnout.

 

Working remotely does not necessitate constant internet access. 

 

You will not be constantly present, and you should avoid attempting to be.

 

You can only be in one place at any given time. You can only focus on one thing at a time.

 

You should disable notifications while working online.

 

The barrage of beeps, chimes, and dings will impede your productivity and damage your emotional health.

 

2. Physical Activity Can Help You Relieve Stress.

 

 

Transition and confusion cause stress. When stress levels rise, productivity suffers. Exercising is a cure-all.

 

"Both aerobics and yoga can help you release tension," according to the Mayo Clinic.

 

The fitness app market is booming today.

 

Apps are primarily designed to allow users to track their progress, offer nutritional advice, and plan workouts.

 

If you like yoga at home, you can download these apps: Daily Yoga, Gaia, Alo Moves

 

If the Gym is closed, you can download these apps: MapMyRun, Fitbod, Charity Miles.

 

You and your coworkers could create a Slack group where you could share exercise ideas and motivate one another.

 

3. Keep a Clean Workplace.

 

 

Remember that you are not a digital nomad. You are a remote worker.

 

You will not be working from a travel van, at the beach, or elsewhere. 

 

Then, create a quiet, comfortable workspace in your home.

 

Ensure you have enough space to spread out and some light to see what you're doing; a window would be ideal.

 

Keep your work area clean. Throw away wrappers, take dishes out of the sink, and straighten pens and notebooks. You'll thank yourself the next day.

 

4. Establish A Culture That prioritizes Teamwork

 

 

A remote workplace has its own culture.

 

It's important to maintain meaningful relationships with coworkers, even if you work from home.

 

Don't forget to share your world's stories with your teammates, and show interest in theirs, as well.

 

Be confident in telling jokes, exchanging memes, or using emojis through messaging platforms.

 

Provide answers quickly, recommend resources, and acknowledge achievements.

 

Trust and productivity are built on laughter and shared experiences.

 

5. Set Your Availability

 

Your schedules may be the same, but you have different responsibilities.

 

Find out what your daily availability will be with your team.

 

Make sure your team knows if you plan to take time for food, family, or focus.

 

Your team will appreciate your honesty, and you'll have more freedom to relax.

 

Work Remotely And Reap The Benefits

 

 

We have the privilege of pursuing our passion. Our goal is to solve problems and perfect details.

 

Our current crisis presents us with many unknowns that we can't control. 

 

The choice is ours to remain calm and make use of our resources as best we can.

 

It is an incredible resource, and we have instant connectivity around the world.

 

The technology we have today allows us to work from home comfortably (and with relative safety).

 

We have access to cutting-edge tools and a wealth of information.

 

Working remotely is an increasingly common practice in our tech-driven world.

 

No matter what your team's mode of operation is for the season or how long it will last, just take advantage of it, enjoy it and make the most out of it.
