From years of personal experience, there is one tip for successful home working that for me, rules them all…

And that tip is…

The correct mindset.

Mindset will give you a good foundation to complete any mission, even if your mission was to chuck a ring into the fires of mount doom. But enough about Lord of the Rings and back to a task much closer to home. So how do you enter into the right mindset when needing to work from home? It’s all about your work setting.

Where should you go to get into the right work mindset?

Firstly, working from home will always be challenging for anyone’s mindset. With all the best intentions, if you’re working at the kitchen table you’re constantly thinking about what’s in the fridge, what time lunch is and when you’re due the next cuppa. (or is that just me?)

Secondly, working in a separate room is better for mindset but the mind wanders off into thinking what you’d really like to do with the room, then you look out of the window to see there’s a bit of a drama emerging next door but one, so you want to see what that’s all about. (or is that just me?)

And thirdly, working away from the house in a small space outside proved even better again. Procrastination decreases significantly, however, there’s a different problem… If you’re sitting at a desk in a poorly insulated space, above all, all you think about is how cold it is. (or is that just me?)

So you’ve tried it all… Where is the best setting?

If you’re lucky enough to have a garden and an outside area to place an outside office building (spacesaver office or garden room, or integrate both) you’ll have the freedom to create a haven for your working mind, watch your productivity soar and be in control from there on…

Achieve the correct mindset with your perfect setting…

  • Bracket
    Have dedicated space where there are no distractions, an environment where you can keep everything just where you need it and where your mind is dedicated to thinking about work.
  • Bracket
    Gain the freedom to take online video meetings without unwanted noise and distraction. A bit like having your cake and eating it. (ooh, cake.)
  • Bracket
    Flick on your own work-from-home soundtrack for perfect background company (or open the window in summer to hear beautiful birdsong).
  • Bracket
    Decorate the interior with the perfect colour pallet and kit it out with the smartest technology to take personal workspace to the next level, for the ultimate enjoyable home-working office.
  • Bracket
    Lock up at the end of the working day to feel the satisfaction of ‘leaving the office’ for the day or week (and look forward to that well-earned glass of vino).
  • Bracket
    Choose your method of transport for the super short commute home. Whether it be slippers or skateboard (they’re both powered by a good old brew).
  • Bracket
    Easily separate home from work and get your home back physically and mentally.

Mindset is everything. Good luck with your home working journey. The Covid-19 pandemic might have changed how we all work in the future, home-working has become preferable to many businesses that never considered it an option before. It may be here to stay.
