Tips to Balance Remote Working With your Family At Home During Pandemic

The world has been facing a pool of challenges since the COVID-19 pandemic came into existence. Sudden and extended lockdowns made organizations switch to remote working. As the pandemic was rising, it was hard to say when the situation will be normal. It has become tiring for many to switch between the unexpected requirements from work and household. Vaccines have been introduced, but new COVID-19 cases are still showing up.

Be it a working parent or a working spouse, bringing a balance between corporate meetings & household work is taking a toll on mental & physical health. From the rescheduled meetings, kid’s maths test, managing kitchen or meeting assignment deadlines, all this is demanding and stressful to another level. Even for those who have handled remote work in the past, it is a new experience for them. At this time, they are managing work along with their family being at home. Yet, you can get out of this overwhelming situation if you prioritize things instead of stressing over them. Let’s see what all you can do to balance remote working while your family is also home.

1. Set up dedicated workspaces at home

No one likes interruptions, especially if you are on a call with your colleagues or between meetings. Even your kids won’t want interruptions between their classes. It is advisable to work this out with your partner or your parents to have a separate workspace. If you both are working, look for quiet spaces to provide both of you with an independent working environment. This will help you in working dedicatedly from home without losing focus.

2. Divide tasks

Saying no to household chores is not an option when pulling remote working with family at home. So, why not to divide tasks to save yourself from doing unexpected tasks between your office-work? Sit with your family and spouse and discuss this. Ask them to split household chores in a way that does not affect your work life. Knowing in advance about all tasks you have to do in a day becomes easy to manage.

3. Take breaks when required

It’s not only the kids at home who need a break from the classes; even adults need that too. So do not keep yourself away from taking breaks between work. Taking small breaks will help you increase your productivity only as they recharge you. But do not convert those short breaks into long ones, as that will affect your work schedule. Take quick breaks of 15 or 20 minutes for a power nap or snacking. Or you can engage with your kids by playing with them for 10 to 15 minutes.

4. Keep communicating

One of the effective ways to manage remote working in the best way is to communicate. Be it your family or boss, or colleague, communicating will bring a balance in your remote working life from home. For instance, if you feel that your work life is demanding too much time from you, discuss it with your manager. Or for some days, if you want to focus on work, and you cannot support in household chores. Then also, let your partner know about it in advance. It will save you from chaos at work and home.

Conclusion

Remember, this is a stressful situation for all. If you keep pushing yourself harder, it will only bring more stress, and you may get laid off.
