  • Keep your routine and dress as if you were going into work.

  • Be clear about your working hours.
  • Create a designated workspace to limit distractions and so your job doesn’t intrude into the lives of other members of your household.
  • Purchase noise cancelling headphones or earbuds.
  • Keep your workspace at arm’s-length after hours.
  • Utilize video communications more than you normally wouldseeing people will keep you feeling connected. Check out great options in the table below.

Reduce neck and back pain while working from home with these tips:

  • Remember to get up and walk around during the day or make time to exercise because you’ll not have the need to move around to see people or walk to conference rooms like you normally would do.
  • If you don’t have an office chair and a desk, use a dining table and straight back chair. The couch and other super-soft seating can make you slouch.
  • Get up and move at least once an hour. 
  • Have your monitor at about eye level in order to prevent your neck from extending up or down.
  • Hips and knees should be slightly more open than 90 degrees.
  • Upper arms should be relaxed and vertical from shoulders to elbows. Wrists should be flat and straight. 
  • To prevent glare and eye strain, position screen(s) perpendicular to windows. 
  • Connect a keyboard and monitor to your laptop if possible to avoid slouching, straining your eyes, and looking down.
