As a hybrid worker, look at your tasks and where’s best to carry them out – home, workplace or another location? And how productive is multi-tasking?
Healthy working habits for productivity
- Move regularly whilst working
- Look away from your screen at least every 20 minutes
- Get up from your desk at least every hour
This applies to every hybrid working location of course.
The World Health Organisation advises regularly breaking up sedentary time. Have a dance, do a stretch, make a drink, anything that gets you moving!
“Take a 5-minute break every 30 to 45 minutes. You can stretch your back, walk around, drink some water. You take your nose out of your work. When you come back to your desk, you might have new ideas. Or, you might think: ‘What am I doing?’ And stop it before you waste all your time.” Darius Foroux, Author.
Manage your expectations – you will have good days and bad days for productivity. Take heart and share your feelings with colleagues – whether you’re working from home or at the office. “Trying to do it all and expecting it all can be done exactly right is a recipe for disappointment. Perfection is the enemy.” Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook.
