7 tips for working from home.

COVID-19 has changed the way that we work, creating a nation of telecommuters virtually overnight. Our  team is working from home as we all come together while working apart.

We know that many of you are finding yourselves working from home for the first time, so with our partners at BDI, we wanted to take a moment to share a few helpful tips for getting yourself set up and organized so that you can be focused and productive.

When you work in an office, the daily routine of getting ready and commuting helps your brain get ready for the day.

It can be easy to get so focused on your work as a telecommuter that you avoid breaks altogether. Make sure you are taking periodic breaks to relax and recharge. Rather than checking social media, however, use your breaks to step away from your desk. Go for a short walk outside, stretch, or spend time with others who might also be in the house.
