Working remotely is a growing concept in the business world. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find a professional these days who hasn’t worked remotely. Whether it’s a home office, answering emails on the road, or simply setting up shop at a local coffee house for a couple hours—more and more the work day is extending beyond the typical 9-5 cubicle.

According to a study by the Telework Research Network, more than 30 million people work from a home or virtual office at least once a week and experts believe that up to 63 million people will work from home by 2016.

So, here’s what that means: We need to learn how to do it well. It can be difficult to find motivation in your pajamas or stay on task when your home needs more attention.  That’s why we thought we would share our best tips for working remotely with Lakeside Executive Suites. Read on to be inspired.

Create a designated office space:  Having a designated office space is crucial for organization and consistency. You want to find a spot with limited distractions to maintain focus.

Choose a space with natural light: There have been many studies to show that natural light stimulates the brain and increases productivity

Create a routine: A routine sets the expectation for work. Create a definite start time and end time so that you have separation from home life and work life.

Daily goal setting: It is important in any working environment to establish a daily agenda with goals that you need to accomplish.  A check list is an excellent tool for accountability and staying on track.

Allow time for movement and socialization: Working remotely shouldn’t mean isolation. Your brain and body need movement and fellowship. Take a walk at lunch, hit the gym in the morning, and schedule 30 minute morning and afternoon breaks. It is important to take care of yourself mentally and physically.
