Embracing Working From Home by Sylvia Baldock

Working From Home – How to Embrace it and Feel Empowered!


  • Does working from home feel daunting and challenging?
  • Do you find it difficult to stay motivated in isolation?
  • Do you fear lack of action and productivity?
  • Are family distractions eating into your valuable time?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you are certainly not alone!

If you have never had to work from home or have always felt you don’t work effectively there, being suddenly thrown into forced isolation from your colleagues and team can seem extremely daunting.

Having worked well from home for over 13 years, I have now implemented habits and measures which mean I am working more effectively than ever.

I will share some of the many benefits, address several of the key challenges and share my 16 TOP TIPS for embracing working from home and the increased productivity it can bring.

Some of the key points I will address -

How to gain more precious TIME and use it productively.

How to create an environment conducive to working well.

How to deal with the isolation that working from home can bring.

How to stay motivated when you are working alone.

How to plan a highly effective day.

How to minimise distractions.

How to invest in your own growth and development.

How to build a schedule that works for you and that becomes a ‘habit’.

In testing times of change, a new routine can be a source of strength and resilience.

Introducing practices that make you feel healthy and valued will go a long way to boosting your confidence and your ability to come through this testing time stronger and wiser.
