WFH? HOW TO SWITCH OFF FROM WORK WHEN WORKING FROM HOME
If you are working from home, this WFH hack will make all the difference to your personal time and change your mindset
Many of my clients are now working from home (WFH) and tell me how exhausted - and frustrated - they are by the lack of demarcation between their working hours and personal time.
Freelancers, who have been working from home for years, feel the same.
Is the line between your work time and personal time blurring now that you are working from home? When based in an office, at least you could just walk out of the door and leave the space at the end of the working day. Now your home is your office, what can you do?
This simple action creates a huge shift in your mindset and navigates it into unwind mode.
When you finish your work for the day, take a shower and change your clothes.
Shut your computer down to signal work time is over and head straight to the bathroom. Enjoy washing the day away and you could even spend time thinking about what you would like to do this evening; this is called mental rehearsal and will steer the mind into a new mood and mindset.
Pick clothes which you would usually wear on a weekend and that are comfortable. Studies show that clothes change how we think and feel, so choose items which reflect relaxation and enjoyment.
Try this easy working from home hack and see how you feel afterwards.
If you are finding working from home hard, whether it be maintaining a work life balance, motivation, clarity or missing the lack of connection, I can help.
