5 Top Tips For Working From Home

Working from home during coronavirus lockdownThe coronavirus out­break means many people are sud­denly remote working for the first time, and quite a few are already strug­gling psy­cho­lo­gically. I’ve been doing it for over fifteen years. So here are my five top tips for working from home:

  • Routines help. Make sure you change them on the weekend, though. Oth­erwise you’ll soon stop noticing that weekends exist. Build in some flex­ib­ility too, if pos­sible. Work with the needs of your household, not against them.
  • Stop telling yourself, “It’s only for three weeks” (or whatever the expected dur­ation is in your region). It may be, but it may be longer. This is your new normal. Accept that, or however long it ends up being, it will seem a lot longer. Also, if it turns out to be longer, you’ll be more stressed about that.

Small Business Coronavirus Lockdown Help

Enough with the doom and gloom. As small business owners facing this coronavirus lockdown, we need to remember:

  • Bad news and fear sell papers. So they get over-pro­­moted.
  • Good news is coming from other sources. Share hope, not fear.
  • The game has changed, not ended. We lose if we admit defeat.
  • Everyone is being hit — but that levels the playing field.
  • Adapt­ab­ility is the small business advantage.
  • Neg­at­ivity under­mines cre­ativity and planning.
  • Our fam­ilies and teams need to see con­fidence, not fear.
  • Stress also under­mines the immune system. Breathe, and calm.
  • Mutual support, determ­in­ation and flex­ib­ility will win.
  • No entre­preneur sur­vives without being able to see hope in adversity. Silver linings may be a razor’s edge at times, but that’s where we find the silver.
