Work from home software

Working from home can bring about unhealthy habits. In addition, people find themselves less focused and more distracted. Work from home software provides people with the tools to keep a healthy lifestyle while working from home. Here are a few ways in which it can help.

  • Stay fit

Many people gain weight when they start working from home. Work from home software can send you workouts which are custom made for people who work from home.

  • Manage stress

  • Alert reminders

It will remind you to get up from your desk every 45 minutes to move around. In addition, you will get alerts every 20 minutes to stop looking at your screen for 20 seconds.

  • Reduce strain injuries

Many people who work remotely end up suffering from aching muscles. Work from home software provides exercises at the end of your workday in order to reduce strain injuries.

Software to organize tasks and deadlines

When working from home, especially if you’re working in a team, it’s hard to keep track of tasks. Using task management software can help. Here are a few helpful features that you can benefit from:

  • You can customize the platform

This feature can help you tailor the software to the needs of the company and the team.

  • Prioritize

You can organize which tasks or a greater and less importance and set due dates.

  • Team collaboration

Notifications are easily sent to your teammates so that they can get live updates on changes.

  • Track progress

Task management software can give you an overview of the work that your team has done. This is a visual that you don’t always get in your office!

Work triggers

Working from home can be hard because our brains don’t have the triggers that we get from our workplace that tell us that we need to work. This is one reason why people who work remotely get distracted easier. Here are a few ways to help trigger the “work mode” in your brain:

  • Routine before work

When we go to the office, we get dressed, commute, get a cup of coffee. These are work triggers. Create new pre-work triggers like exercising and eating breakfast before work.

  • Have a designated workspace

Having a space only for work will help your brain trigger a “work mode.”

  • Specific schedule

Have a set schedule of times when you are working and times when you are doing non-work things, like washing the dishes.

The takeaway:

With the right management tools, you can still be just as productive and also manage your well-being. There are so many helpful tips. By introducing them into your life, you might find that some of these tips can even be used when your work gets back to the office.
