Why working from home is so disruptive to your sleep schedule ?


Student | Posted

Are you a remote worker? Working from home can be great, but it also has its disadvantages. One of the biggest issues is that it's too easy to work late into the night or early in the morning.

As someone who has worked from home for as long as I can remember, I've found the best way to counteract this issue is to get into the habit of sleeping at a particular time period. Even if you work a weird schedule, you'll find that sticking with your normal routine will make it much easier to get on track — and much less stressful.

To aid in this process, try setting aside an hour or two each day just for yourself. Put on some calming music while you do some light cleaning or prepare dinner – then step away from your desk and enjoy your home life.  You'll feel more refreshed when you're ready to jump back into working mode next time.

If you've been dreading the thought of going back to work after a long holiday, then this blog post is for you. Because no matter how much you enjoy your work-life balance with remote working, it can be extremely disruptive to your sleep schedule. Spend too many days at home and we'll bet you'll start craving coffee more often. 

Follow these straightforward tips and expert advice on how to encourage a healthier sleeping routine. You'll find that with these easy-to-implement changes, along with some time spent away from the office, that your sleep habit will gradually start showing improvement.

Take regular breaks.
While working from home is a good way to avoid commuting, it can also be a bad thing if you're trying to get some shuteye. After all, at home your break times are dictated by your own schedule. You could find yourself sitting in front of your computer screen for hours on end without taking care of yourself.

A quick walk around the block can help keep you from falling asleep at your desk and encourage a more restful sleep in the evening. Schedule regular breaks with the Pomodoro Technique or just use an app such as WorkRave .
