From a practical perspective, I would advise creating a set schedule for yourself when working from home. It helps you to maintain focus. I also try to finish at a certain time because it’s very easy to constantly check emails throughout the night or try to finish a piece of work after hours.
Make sure you take breaks throughout the day as well. I often go to a separate part of the house for my break to ensure I rest, as it's quite easy to get caught up in your work and forget about lunch when you're continuously at your desk.
Most importantly for me though, is that I always try to get outside at least once in the day for a run or walk, which helps to clear my mind.
I am grateful that Telstra’s support throughout the pandemic has enabled me to stay both productive and connected to my colleagues, which is crucial for my state of mind. What I have learnt is that working remotely can not only be very productive if you set up the right routines and environment - it can also present opportunities to expand your skills and improve your relationships with co-workers. Make the most of it!
