One of the most common challenges of working from home is boundary management. If you are new to working remotely, trying to balance home, family and work priorities may feel overwhelming. But with sufficient self-awareness and by using your innate talents and strengths-based planning, you can familiarise yourself with this new way of life, while staying healthy and connected at the same time.

To have a life of wellbeing, think about how you can leverage your strengths, using these tips to balance home life, family life and work life.

1. Manage expectations of yourself, your team and your family.
2. Create a routine and build an office environment at home.
3. Set achievable tasks each day and remember to give yourself a break.
4. Stay connected to your team, and mark out clear responsibilities and deadlines to manage projects.
5. Put in place the right technological groundwork, including computers, high-speed Internet, cell phones and shared drive.
6. Make sure you have a quiet place at home to communicate and collaborate effectively.
7. Be kind to yourself. No one is perfect at multitasking. Practice good self-care. Prioritize breaks during the day and set reasonable boundaries.
8. Stay connected with your social communities such as friends and co-workers, by meeting virtually for ‘coffee chats’.
9. Value yourself by valuing your time. Turn down last-minute and unscheduled conversations, especially if they’re not related to your priorities.
10. Plan and prepare meals or snacks in advance, while viewing it as another to-do task

As independent workers, many of us do not have managers to support us and give us a sense of normalcy and stability. We have to be our own managers. Look at your innate strengths to meet these new challenges. Even when we work remotely, keep your workers engaged and find new ways to connect while in isolation.

It is important that we now learn to adjust to this new work environment – because who knows, the homely workplace may just be tomorrow’s norm.

 

在家工作,生活平衡健康的方法

在家工作最常見的挑戰之一就是如何管理工作與生活的界限。如果您不熟悉在家或遠距工作的方式,那麼剛開始嘗試要平衡家庭生活,和工作卓越表現可能會感到不知所措。只要有自我意識,察覺時間管理的作法,使用與生俱來的天賦才能,並發展基於優勢的計劃,您就可以找到保持身心健康,與外界保持聯繫,並熟悉這種新工作生活方式的方法。

要能有生活工作的幸福感,可以想想自己的優勢如何幫助你,使用這些天份來實現家庭、生活和工作之間的平衡。以下是幾個重要原則:

1. 與自己,您的團隊和家人一起管理期望,創造和諧共識
2. 創建例程,在家中建立適合工作的獨立辦公環境
3. 每天設定可以實現的任務,記得要讓自己在任務間休息一下
4. 與團隊保持聯繫。對於管理項目的職責和期限有明確共識
5. 建立適當的硬體技術與基礎,包括電腦設備、高速網路,手機,共享檔案夾
6. 確保您有安靜的工作空間,將幫助與其他人進行有效的溝通
7. 對自己好一點,沒有人是完美的多重任務處理者。鼓勵讚賞自己
8. 與您的社交圈保持互動聯繫,習慣進行網路聊天,甚至只是虛擬的“咖啡聊天”,都能與同事和朋友保持親密關係
9. 在工作與生活間設定合理的界限,珍惜寶貴時間。如果不是緊急或優先任務,學習推遲臨時干擾與時間的要求
10.提前計劃和準備每天需要的三餐或點心,像安排其他任務一樣,

作為在家獨立的工作者,我們要學習不仰賴管理者來提供希望,信任,同情和穩定的環境。我們必須為自己的內在做好健康管理。查看您與生俱來的優勢,以找到新的力量,保持遠程工作者的參與,並在獨立的情況下,找到與團隊連接的方法。學習適應調整新的工作方式。
