Working Remotely: How to Work Effectively Away From the Office

One of the biggest changes the Covid-19 pandemic has brought is that so many people are now working remotely. And many employees love it. Employees doing their work from home have improved productivity and performance and are less stressed overall.

At Signet Apartments, we know you might need to be working while you’re staying with us. Read below to make sure you’re getting the best out of what we have to offer, to improve your remote work experience.

Dedicated Office Space

It has become more common not to need to go into the office every day, but it can be helpful to have a dedicated space when working away from home. This is because working in remote spaces for long periods can reduce your focus if you don’t create the right conditions.

When you stay in one of our serviced apartments in Cambridge, consider working at a desk or table, and not in your bed or on the couch. This makes sure your brain switches on into “work mode” when you need it to.

Change of Scenery

A big problem people have with working remotely is that they can stay cooped up inside for days. Taking a break can be a great way to give yourself a reset and energise yourself before getting back to your laptop.

There are loads of things to do in Cambridge if you need to take a break from work and you are looking to explore your surroundings.

Keep a Routine

Keeping your routine is vital for successful remote working. So many people lose their self-motivation for work when their routine is disrupted.

Make sure you’re sticking to your regular working hours to ensure you don’t burn out or make it difficult for your brain to switch back into a more relaxed headspace.

Having a morning ritual is a great way to start your work routine, and it can help tune you into the workday. Exercise is a great way to end your workday. It gives you a clear endpoint and can help you switch out of work mode. These two additions to your routine will help you create clear start and endpoints of your workday.

Staying Healthy

A big trap of remote working is falling into unhealthy habits. When you don’t have to leave your house, the idea of going shopping or to the gym after a long workday is awful. This is fine every now and then, but it can be a problem for your health when you start doing it every day.

Luckily, all our serviced apartments are located near local shops and amenities. It’s quick and easy to go to the shops or gym after your workday. We even offer discounts for some of the gyms near our apartments. And with all the utensils you could need available in our kitchens, cooking for yourself is easy when you stay with us.
