This is the first and most important aspect to creating a personal workspace out of your home. You might choose a space with less distraction and more natural light and air, probably by window.

You can paint or design the space to fit your style and set the mood for working. This space will be dedicated for your work hours and will help you create balance between office and home duty.


2. Work Equipment

It is best to invest in appropriate equipment such as an ergonomic desk, filing cabinet, office chair, power socket, phone stand, etc. These equipment give your workspace the setting it needs and the support you need to work comfortably. A comfortable workstation helps prevent cramps from sitting for a long period. You can also get other things such as wallpapers, scent diffuser, frames, music speakers to liven up your workspace.


3. Space Zoning

To manage distractions that come from working at home, set a work plan to help you manage your hours. Make a list of important tasks that are of high priority, and tasks that require less time to work on. This way you will be able to effectively use your work hour and implement your task without wasting time.


5. Set Break Hour

Breaks between work is important to prevent burnout and cramp from sitting for too long. You can decide to take short breaks at regular intervals or one break per day during your work hour.
