If you’re new to working remotely, it can be harder than expected to stay efficient outside the structures of an office. That’s why it’s important to establish your own rules and conditions for work at home. Here’s how you can tailor your daily work routine for home, so you can stay focused and productive throughout the day.

Switch up your mornings

Now that you work from home, you can reboot your morning routine with energizing activities. Schedule in a short exercise or meditation to start the day on a positive note. Catch the news with a cup of coffee as you transition into work mode. And with calendar notifications on your Samsung Smart TV, you can stay on top of daily tasks and important deadlines as you jumpstart the workday.

Design the ultimate work zone

When it’s time to get down to business, you need an environment that helps you fully focus on your task. Set up a home office that's distraction-free. Or block off time in your daily routine to tackle bigger projects. You can even use your TV to work on your office PC remotely, so you have all the work files you need at home. Plus, the larger screen lets you view more and do more at once.

Reinvent the coffee break

One of the great benefits of working from home is being able to recharge in a fun way. Take 5-10 minutes throughout the day to grab a snack or video chat with colleagues. Split your TV display with Multi View*, to keep an eye on your work screen and stretch along to a yoga video at the same time. Taking regular breaks helps you renew energy levels, boosting productivity and work performance.

Perform a ritual to leave work

Since you can't physically leave work, you'll need to clock off in a different way. Perform a ritual like preparing dinner that clearly separates your professional and personal life. Sit back with the Music Wall on your QLED TV and fully enjoy your leisure time at home. Striking a healthy work life balance reduces stress, keeping you energised and productive every workday.
