Tips for Working from Home in Bangladesh - Buy Flat Dhaka

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant significant life changes for people around the globe, including working professionals in Bangladesh. While some of us have returned back to our offices in Dhaka, many are still working from home or going through a phased return.

Working from home can bring with it many benefits, from productivity growth, flexibility and spending more time with family and loves ones. However, it can be an isolating and challenging experience, especially if you struggle to balance work and family commitments or feel lonely from working in isolated conditions.

Fortunately, the BestBari team have compiled our top 5 tips for working from home which will hopefully lead to a better productivity and happiness when working from home. We hope you enjoy the article!

Choose a dedicated workspace or home office

One of the biggest challenges when it comes to working from home is separating your work and personal/family commitments. If you were used to commuting into the office every day, the separation between work and home was clear since there was physical distinction and you may want to recreate the same professional and focused environment for your dedicated workspace.

Firstly, try and make your workspace comfortable with an ergonomic chair and desk surrounded by a few of your favourite decorations. Find an area in your home that has good natural lighting to make it easier to read and work from your workspace. Sitting down in a dedicated working space will sends clear signals to your brain that it’s time to focus.

Regularly clean your work area and organise the clutter daily so you have a clear mind and productive when working in your designated area. Create a calm atmosphere by adding some greenery to your working space. Studies have shown than plants are good for our circulation and calms us down for high performance.

Structure your day like you would at work

Although it can be tempting to work on your laptop on the sofa with comfortable home clothes, it doesn’t help give your brain the right signal to get work done throughout the day and may even lead to an unproductive mindset. When you dress up for work, you give your brain a reason for getting dressed up, and keeps you motivated throughout your work hours. So when working from home, do all the things you’d do to prepare for an office role including wearing professional clothes and arriving on time to work.

Set a working schedule and maintain regular work hours

We are all creatures of habit, so a regular schedule is important. Having clear guidelines for when to work helps maintain work-life balance. Get up, get dressed and arrive at your home office on time to start the working day. When the working day is over, log off and focus on your personal and family commitments to maintain a healthy work-life balance. 

One of the most challenging issues of working from home is not becoming distracted with other family members in your workspace. Make sure to set boundaries and manage expectations just like you would in the office.

Take regular breaks, stay active and fit

Last but not least, try and stay active and exercise regularly. Incorporate exercise into your daily routine and try to prioritise on getting outside if you can, even if it’s just a short walk around our block or to the to the rooftop of your building and back. Set a time to go for a walk, run or bike ride for some fresh air, or a coffee.

Making time for breaks is important to help manage feelings of stress. Make sure to have lunch and regular screen breaks to rest your eyes and give yourself time to concentrate on something else that doesn’t involve looking at a screen. Eat well, sleep well and exercise well – these are key ingredients for good physical and mental health and must not be ignored just because you are working at home.

Stay connected and socialise with your colleagues

With the latest video conferencing technology like Zoom or Microsoft teams, make sure to have regular facetime with your colleagues and peers. Although this doesn’t substitute a physical face-to-face meetings, it’s still better than just using email or chat to communicate.

Also, use social media like Facebook and messaging apps like WhatsApp to stay connected and socialise with your colleagues like you would in the workplace. For example, consider arranging a weekly virtual hangout with colleagues to catch-up socially and have group activities and games for fun.

Working from home has its benefits and challenges, which may have not planned for, but you can make the most of it. It can take some time to get use to the new normal with COVID and working from home, so give yourself some time to form the right habit and remember, we’re all in this together.
