Top 5 Tips for Working from Anywhere for Increased Productivity
1. Form a Daily Routine
Routine, routine, routine! We can’t stress the importance of this enough. Routines are good for your overall wellness in general. Having a consistent routine is proven to decrease stress levels, which can help you perform better at your job. If you’re someone who has a hard time sticking to a routine, start small! Set an alarm and get out of bed at the same time each morning to begin work. Altering your circadian rhythm is a small change that has big benefits!
2. Designate a Workspace
As much as we would love to say that your bed is the perfect desk; it’s not. Working remotely often means from home — whether yours or an Emerald Isle rental. It can be tempting to work from your bed, but we suggest you don’t. We suggest designating an office space that requires you to get out of bed in the morning. If that’s not a possibility, head to a local coffee shop to plug in! The kitchen table in your rental home is a great spot to set up shop during your trip to Emerald Isle. Enjoy tons of natural light, unlimited access to coffee, and even ocean views! There’s nothing to motivate you like the promise of an evening on the best Crystal Coast beaches.
3. Take Breaks
You can’t run on empty! As a remote worker, it’s easy to work through lunch when you’re working on a big project or have back-to-back conference calls. We suggest taking at least two 15 to 30-minute breaks per day. Whether it’s to enjoy lunch or a stroll along the beach, these breaks will leave you feeling recharged at ready to finish out the day. Run yourself into the ground and you’re sure to crash and burn!
4. Set Work Hours
One of the advantages of an office job is that your brain can turn on when you arrive and off when you leave. It can be easy to work outside of normal work hours when you can work from anywhere. That’s why we suggest setting standard work hours! You can enforce these boundaries by blocking your evenings on your calendar, setting an alarm on your phone, or making plans after work hours. We suggest planning a happy hour at one of the best places to eat on Emerald Isle!
