Working from home isn't that great after all

A new British study has found that people who work from home actually worked more than those who went into the office. Work from home employees clocked in more hours and did more. Why?  They had a hard time knowing when to turn off “work mode” and call it quits for the day. “Traditionally, we have had spatial boundaries made for us by offices, shops and factories, which mean that home and other places of leisure are separated from work,” said Alan Felstead, a professor at Cardiff University in Wales. “However remote work blurs those lines and workers have to reinstate boundaries. That is often why it is difficult [for employees] to switch off.” (Moneyish)  


Speaking of work … Studies show that even brief breaks during the day can increase your focus and productivity. Here’s how you can take breaks every day: 1) Step away from the screen. A brisk walk around the block or parking lot is much better for your brain than checking your Facebook feed. 2) Socialize. Talking to your co-workers will make you much happier about work than sitting at your desk and texting. 3) Take a break every 52 minutes. Research shows that a break every 52 minutes (or close to that) actually increases your productivity. 4) Eat. Not mindless eating, but stopping to enjoy a meal (especially one packed with protein) will help feed your mind as well as your stomach. 5) Just sit and be. Just sitting, turning off your mind and meditating/daydreaming will give your brain the re-charge it needs.
