Working from Home Survival Tips

Tyler Irby, Royal Cup Inc.

Hey friends - for those of you getting prepped to work from home, here’s some friendly advice from my experience (albeit being in sales, I am fortunate that I’m in the field 2-3 days a week too). But on those days in the home office, these help me.

Rule #1. GET DRESSED LIKE YOU DO FOR WORK! Lounging in your PJs will NOT motivate you. At the very least change out of your PJs. Promise it helps. You’ll feel better talking to colleagues/clients too. And if you are on a video call if will be appreciated.

Rule #2 Stay OUT of the pantry! With snacks/drinks close by you’ll find yourself grabbing a little of this and a little of that. Don’t - or at least make it healthy.

Rule #3. Take the lunch break. Read your Bible. Go outside. Play a app on your phone. Just make sure to take that break. It’s needed and you’ll feel refreshed for the second half of your day.

Hope that helps!!!
