Separate your workspace from the rest of your home. Create a barrier between yourself and the rest of your household. Store everything you need for your work in your office so you can be efficient in your space. Keep everything work related out of the rest of your home to help you maintain a work-life balance. Even if you live alone, you need a space that can help you create a work-life balance.
Make the most of your space. If you live in an apartment or small home without an extra room, you can still set up an efficient home office. Designate any separate space you can exclusively for work. This is better than working from your couch or bed.
- Carve out a workspace in your closet by removing the doors and installing a small table, chair, shelves, and good lighting.
- Put a desk, chair, shelving, and light sources in a corner of your kitchen or another room in the house.
- Avoid working from your bedroom to maintain the best sense of work-life balance.
