How to Manage Stress When You’re Working From Home

If you’re not used to working from home, it can be a real challenge to get used to. This is especially true because it’s different for everyone. For example, some people are more prone to distraction outside of an office, while others get so deeply focused they forget to take breaks. Since Union Square Media Group has had a work-from-home program as well as a number of full-time remote team members, we thought we’d share some of our best tips for making the transition to working from home easier.

Maintain your routine.

Set up a dedicated “office.”

Minimize distractions.

Take breaks.

Stay connected with coworkers.

Unplug when the day ends.

Take care of yourself.

Taking care of your mental health is just as important as your physical health, especially in times of stress or crisis. Luckily, there are apps for almost everything from mediation to online therapy to techniques for managing specific mental health issues. Headspace, 10% Happier, and Talkspace are just a few.
