Balancing work and family when working from home after an accident at work claim
If you have decided to start up a business of your own, or have had to leave your job because of an accident, then one of the options for saving money in your own business is to work from home. Many people enjoy the idea of working from home, as it means spending less money on travel and office costs and it also gives you more freedom. With the positives, though, come some negatives.
Working from home means that you are more likely to be distracted by family and other people living in the house and if you have always worked in an office you may struggle to stay focused all day long. Here are some ways in which you can keep your focus.
- Set aside time for both. If you neglect either your work or family then you may find that this affects your mental state with the other. Try to set aside time which is exclusively for just work and which is just for family, so that you feel like both sides of your life are looked after.
- Incorporate them into each other. If there are any activities that your family can help with, then why not allow them into your work life. Phone calls, sending out mail and so on can be great activities for children, to earn them some extra pocket money.
- Set aside a room for work. In smaller homes this may be difficult, but it is important that you find yourself an room and a space to do your work where you will not be interrupted and where you can shut the door and focus. Ensure that the whole family knows not to enter your office when the door is closed.
- Change your hours. Working from home means that you can work different hours, so plot your work life around when the family is and is not home.
