In today’s generation remote work has become increasingly popular. I mean who doesn’t like to work from home? Imagine how peaceful it sounds. You are working from home and at the same time you can manage to perform several other functions. Cook whatever you want, take a nap if you feel like sleeping in the middle of the work. Especially when it comes to writing you need to find perfect environment to gain inspiration and ideas out of it. However, working in office means you have to look at exact same wall everyday. Yet working from home means you can go out to different places and can find a lot of creativity around you.
Besides all these and many other good factors of remote work there are many other poor habits that is caused only when you are working from home and need to be eliminated as soon as possible.
As a writer, I know how important it is to find a secluded place which is free of all types of distractions. However, socially isolating yourself is not a very good idea. We all are well aware of the fact that how important it is for us to keep on having interaction with people.
A scientific study shows what great damage isolation can cause to your health which includes cardiovascular disease and dementia.
To prevent this from happening, look for a partner to converse with and work together.This will help you enlighten your ideas too.
2) over eating
Sitting on the exact same place, all focused on your work, struggling to find inspiration and guess what? Here you started munching again. No you were not hungry, you took your lunch few minutes back, you were just bored and for a change you started snacking again.
Well that is pretty common. We eat when we are hungry, bored and when we have nothing to do but that is not a very healthy habit. If you are an office worker, you are already well aware of the timings you are allowed to eat but that is not the case if you arre working from home. You can eat whenever and whatever you want without any restrictions which can ruin your health.
Try replacing unhealthy snacks with healthy snacks which will help you overcome your craving and will make your health even better.
3) Work and tea
I, myself is a fan of tea. Working without tea is almost impossible for me. However consuming too much tea or coffee is actually a bad idea due to the excess of caffeine. I know I’m not the only one who can’t work without having a cup of tea so that is why I found an alternative of this which will not ruin our health in any way.
Replace your regular tea with grean tea after each meal. Research shows how beneficial green tea is for health. However, if you have stomach ulcer, I’ll suggest you to avoid it as it increases acidity.
4) work life vs personal life
Where remote work is full of benefits, it can actually mess up your personal life.
For an office job, you have to work for 6 or 9 hours a day, yet working from home means engaging yourself completely without any intervals.
It’s not that of a big deal to give yourself break from work. All you’ve to do is set your own time limits. Bearing this in mind that you’ve a life too, do not submerge yourself completely in work. Set up an alarm, complete your work by the deadline you gave to yourself.
This will help you in finding time for yourself and for your loved ones and will be a great help in building a better content.
Pulled another all-nighter because working at night is better than day time as no one is awake to distract you but have you ever wondered what it’s doing to your health and how rapidly it’s making your life span shorter?
Focusing on your work is a great thing, in contrast making sure to be healthy can help you more in performing well. So instead of working till late night start working early morning after doing some morning workout with a cup of green tea. I’m pretty sure, working in the morning will give you better inspiration as compared to the working at night.
Believe me! It is not that hard to overcome your bad habits if you are actually willing to do so. Learn to takecare of your health first then only you will be able to give your 100% to your work or else you will do everything with half heart which means you’re showing no respect towards yourself and towards your work.
I hope this blog will help you in detecting your bad remote-work habit and will be a guidance towards the elimination of these habits too.
