Working from home has it benefits and challenges. If you’re one of nearly half of Americans who work remotely on occasion, then creating a productive workspace is important to you. You do not need to take over the kitchen table to process those papers and bills. Creating an effective, flowing, and calming workspace is beneficial on many levels.
Even if you don’t have a door to your home office, having a solution or cue to ‘close the door’ when the days’ work is done is something that I encourage you to incorporate. Otherwise, the work is always there. Use a panel room divider, auditory clue like playing Semosonic’s ‘Closing Time’, or another fun way to signal the end of your work time.
