2020 has been a whirlwind for all of us, and at some point this year, you may have experienced remote work for the first time.
And while maybe the first few days of waking up a bit late and wearing your pajamas to work were lit, the beauty soon started to wear off.
A few weeks into working from home, you might have run into a few remote working problems.
The line between home and work got blurry, and you start procrastinating way more than usual.
A ten-minute coffee break turned into cleaning the kitchen, taking the dogs for a walk, and then you realized that it’s now 2 pm and you’re still in the same clothes as yesterday, but that project you’ve been putting off is due tomorrow.
Solving Remote Working Problems – Renting a Modular Office
We here at Nooka have solved the biggest of remote working problems and we’re going to teach you can work from home and thrive at the same time.
Alright, let’s get into, shall we?
5 Common Problems Remote Workers Run Into
There have been loads of problems that me and many of my friends and co-workers have personally run into shortly after working from home.
Until you get into the swing of things, it can be really difficult to adjust well to your new work life.
That’s why I want to touch on 5 common problems that remote workers run into and how you can avoid each and every one of them, to the best of your ability.
It’s better for you to learn from my mistakes than your own!
- Not Being Able to Separate Work Life From Home Life
I think this is the number one kicker that gets to everyone at some point or another during their time of remote work.
I know first hand that separating home life from work life can absolutely mess with you quite badly.
I actually just recently met up with a friend who started working from home due to the pandemic, and she was telling me all about how she would start programming at 8am, and before she knew it, it was 10 pm and she was still working.
And of course, there’s the complete opposite side of the spectrum, where you begin to wake up later and later everyday, and you only start working after 11 am.
We’ve all been there. No shade.
Or perhaps you’ve just gotten carried away cleaning up your home and cooking something or playing a game, and you didn’t realize it’s already half-way through the working day.
Separating home life from your work life can be a real challenge.
- Unorganized Work Space
Another huge challenge that I’ve faced is keeping an organized work space.
When you eat, sleep, work, and hang out all in the same place, it’s hard to keep your spaces clean and organized.
There’s scientific evidence behind the benefits of working in a clean environment and how it makes you more productive and, all around, a happier person.
And when you’re constantly in the same place, you’re bound to get you’re space a little dirty, which leads you to getting behind in work and procrastinating due to mid-day cleaning.
- Constant Distractions
If you work from home and happen to have roommates, pets, or you live with your significant other, you know how that can easily become a recipe for disaster.
One simple “Wanna play a quick game of rocket league?” or “Take the dogs out to the park really quick?” and out goes 3 hours of work.
When you’re in a homey environment, it’s hard to stay focused and remember you’re actually supposed to be working.
- No Peace and Quiet
This one goes hand in hand with living with others in your space, and that is that it’s hard to get some peace and quiet.
We’ve all seen the viral videos of the parents frantically trying to get their kids out of their video conference call.
They’re downright hilarious, but it’s most likely not ideal to have a bunch of noise happening in the background of your call with your colleagues.
Or on the other hand, you might not be able to focus because of all the noise your family or roommates are making.
You need peace and quiet every once in a while to be your most productive self.
- Not “Dressing For the Part”
And finally, one final problem that remote workers commonly run into is not dressing for the part.
The first few days of waking up late, not taking a quick shower and getting dressed for the day are all fun and games until it turns into days, weeks, and even months of not putting effort into getting ready for work.
When you get dressed and ready for the day, it truly does help switch your gears into work mode.
But it’s hard to be motivated sometimes to get dressed up, only to walk down to your kitchen.
The Solution: Renting a Modular Office
The simplest and best solution to all of these remote working problems is to rent a modular office.
By renting a modular office, you have your own, modern space to work in and it will help you solve all the common problems that we remote workers face on a daily basis.
When you have a modular office in your backyard or right next door, you have a clean, organized space to work from.
A place you can walk to, even if it’s only a few meters from home, but it will help you make the mindful difference between work life and home life.
No more distractions, just productive days getting the job you’re most passionate about, done.
