The Covid-19 pandemic has led to many changes in the way we carry out business, and one of the changes that has had the most impact of all, is the number of people who are working from home. Businesses shut their offices down, and public transport stopped running, to stop the spread of the virus. This led to people setting up home offices, but the challenge is to remain productive. Anywhere in your house can be used as a home office to work from, even your couch or your kitchen table. But to remain productive you need a workstation with at least a desk and a chair to operate from.
An ideal home office would be a dedicated room with a door to ensure privacy and quietness. Take time to clear out the space where you are setting up your home office to make it conducive to working. To organize the junk removal to clear this space, please contact Little Green Junk Company, as one of our specialties is hauling away office trash. Once your dedicated space is clean and organized, your productivity is sure to improve.
Many people will find working from home for the first time, challenging. What is normally a place of retreat from the world now becomes the heart of your working life. With children also at home because of formal schooling being suspended, there are bound to be some problems to overcome. Separating work life from home life will present problems. Children need to be homeschooled, kept occupied and entertained while you are expected to work. Hopefully though, all members of the family will learn to live with this ‘new normal’ and life will surely get back to a form of normalcy with the opening of schools and transport links.
It is impossible to work in a messy cluttered environment and be productive. If you set your home office up in an organized way, the more effective you will be. At Little Green Junk Company, we are ready to assist you setting up your home office by removing and disposing of any junk that is preventing you from achieving your work from home success.
Here are some tips to help you organize your home office.
If you need to share your home office with your partner, or it is a place where children do their homework, you will have to ensure that each person has a separate workstation to avoid obvious conflict.
A small seating area may be necessary if you need to hold meetings at your home, as it may not be practical to meet clients in your living room where family may be watching TV, or carrying on with their daily activities.
You will need a day or two to clean out and set up your home office. Don’t stress about missing time as a well-organized home office will surely motivate you and help you stay organized.
Once you have decided on a day for your office clear-out, start on it early. It is important to stay focused on this task and not get distracted by household activities. Apply the ‘recycle, reuse, reduce’ (3R’s) method to make your cleanout efforts easier. Items that must be recycled can be placed in bags for removal to the recycling center. Unwanted items like furniture that may be taking up precious space in your new home office, is what the Little Green Junk Removal company can remove for you. We even offer a same day service if you need your trash to be hauled away in a hurry. Reduce your use of paper by using digital platforms to store your information.
Arrange your home office by taking advantage of the layout of the room. Your desk placement could benefit from natural light near a window while you enjoy a lovely outlook over the garden.
Cords from mobile devices and office equipment need to be organized as even mobile devices must be charged at some stage. Use twist ties or cord covers to keep cords safe. A nest of jumbled cords is unsightly.
You spend many hours a day sitting in at your desk so invest in yourself by buying an ergonomically correct office chair to avoid any back or posture problems from sitting in an uncomfortable chair. Make sure your desk is also the correct height. Keep your home office organized by investing in secure storage systems for important papers and files.
Give everything in your home office a good clean to ensure your furniture and floors are spick and span, and your space is somewhere you are happy to spend time in. Please give us a call for any office junk you may wish to get rid of.
Add some final touches by making sure your lighting is right and is not straining your eyes, put a green plant in the corner and hang up some appropriate pictures. If you have zoom or online meetings from your home office, make a point of ensuring that clients or colleagues have a good view behind you while you are meeting. So, arrange that wall into something good to look at.
