3 Tips for Staying Happy and Productive as a Remote Worker

The world is changing.

And we're not just talking about the proliferation of cats on the internet — remote work is on the rise and, more than ever, people can work from home.

But if you think that just because you don't show up to an office every day means it's all smooth sailing from here on out...well...you're wrong!

That's why we've put together this list of 10 tips for staying happy and productive as a remote worker.

1. Set up a Virtual Office

If you've got reliable internet, it's time to set up some kind of home office.

When we want to get some work done — especially if it means collaborating with someone else — we use our virtual office.

We're talking about the "meeting room" in Windows Vista.

It's hard to think of a better way to get things done in your home office when you're remote than by setting up a virtual office and joining the same network as the people whom you work with.

So take a look at your router settings and make sure you're on the same network as the people you work with.

Then, head to Virtual Office — it's free, and it's easy to use.

With Virtual Office, you can have a virtual meeting room where you and your co-workers can get things done without leaving the house.

It makes video conferencing much easier than if you all tried to meet in real life.

2. Create a Calendaring System

Time management is something that many office workers struggle with when they're remote, even if they're not truly remote workers.

So we recommend creating a calendar to stay on top of deliveries, due dates, and any other dates you need to keep track of.

When we're working on a project, we always use Time Champ to organize our time and make sure we're getting things done in advance.

It's the same system that thousands of companies use for their projects, and it's free.

All you need is an email address and you can start organizing your time on the go.

3. Take Care of Yourself Physically

As remote workers, you'll no longer have those 9-to-5 hours where you're forced to sit at work from around 9 AM until 5 PM with an hour break for lunch.

If you’re traveling regularly, it’s important to look at your insurance policies in detail to see what might be excluded.
