Freelancing has changed the life, changed the routine from 9 to 5 at office. People’s are self dependent. People do not like to address their boss. Now my home is my office.
But for getting 100% professional output please treat your home like your office. Ensure a sweet environment which will bring energy, seriousness, dedication to your job. Here i would like to mention some points to Ensure Exact Environment in your workspace.
1. Differentiate the Family life From Workspace
Though it is your home with your family member, it is better to have separate room for you. Other wise your wife or child might come to you. He might not understand the seriousness of time frame and effectiveness of your job. And different family activities will break your concentration.
2. Computer Placement
Two points should be kept in mind. One place of monitor and other is your sitting position. Most of the time it causes back pain after a long time work. It may cause problem to your Eyesight. Just think that which position is relax for you. Chair also important. It is my experience and after that i did it myself .
3. Organize Your Desk
All of your importance documents should be kept on a shelf. Just your pen, pen holder and pad should be kept in the desk. Some are not serious about storing their documents carefully. You may need your documents again which already used.
4. Using Dual Monitor and Keyboard.
It may not be important for all. But those who are graphics designer or web designer he would have to check preview repeatedly. If you are on laptop then you can use extra monitor. And personally i think that you must have an extra keyboard for your laptop. Cause it will help you to sit in a relax mode.
5.Decorate Your Workspace
Some excellent painting can be set on the wall. Before you start your job just see it for once. It will refresh you. When you are bored it can recharge your energy.
Enough light important, but some likes small amount. OK its up to your choice. But never in dark. The eye in front of monitor is dangerous if we are in dark. But my suggestion is to allow sunlight in your room. Sunlight is healthy and scientific.
7. Calender and White Board
To maintain tight time schedule you must have a calender and whiteboard setup on your wall. Some of the important note we may forget. So important note, tips should be written in the white board.
8. Go Green
For refreshing your mind you can put some green flagellum or vegetable in your workspace. It will enhance the beauty of workspace.
9. Keep Rhythm and Sound
if love music then keep slow volume music. I personally can give much more attention when my favorite musics are playing.
10. Take A Break From Work
When you are tired give break and walk for a little and have little food. It is better if you have space to lay down for a while.
