10 Key Strategies for Working/School from Home

Updated: Sep 11, 2021

Working and going to school from home can be challenging. It is so easy to feel overwhelmed by anxiety or sink into a depression that makes it hard to take care of business. It doesn't have to be! Learn how to be successful while sheltering in place!


1. If possible use a different room. See if you can rope off a unique part of the house for work/school.

2. If you use the same room for everything, create rituals to divide space work and home.

- Tell your family your off to school/work

- Pack and unpack your work/school supplies

- Have your morning, work cup of coffee

- 'Commute' by going for a walk

- Get dressed before you go to 'work/school'

3. Create a routine. This helps put your body on auto pilot so you don't have to work so hard to know what needs done. Examples include:

- Get up same time

- Go to bed at the same time

- Start work/school on at the same time

- Meals at roughly the same time

Basically, create and stick to a schedule!

4. Take frequent, but scheduled breaks

5. Declutter your environment.

- Close out tabs on your laptop

- Turn off your phone

- Disable certain websites/apps during certain times

- Turn tv off

6. Set goals either time or task

7. Find ways to hold yourself accountable

8. Reward accomplishments!

9. Be gentle with yourself-set reasonable expectations

10. Remember you are not working from home, you are sheltering in place during a crisis and trying to get work done.
