Working (or Kilning) from home can be incredibly daunting to any employee. The idea of melding your worlds from the place where you accomplish career goals and the space you smash your life goals may feel like the kind of task that makes you just want to go back to bed. 

Luckily, the Kiln team has some quick and easy dos and don’ts for you to make your space your own and stay in that productivity zone. 

First things first, your bed is not your desk. This is a crucial piece to the work from home set-up. Working in your bed confuses your brain into never knowing if you’re trying to sleep or to be productive. 

Next, do your best to mirror your at-work set-up. Used to having multiple monitors? See if your employer would mind you bringing them home for the next couple of weeks. 

It’s all in the little things! Add plants, bright colors and small prints or family photos that will bring a smile to your face when you seen them. After that, all you really need is a comfortable chair and you’ll be set. 

Beyond all else, remember, now is not the time to be hard on yourself. You’re doing your best and it will get easier. 

To make things a little sweeter, we have a fun contest for all of you! Share your at-home set-up with us on Instagram. Tag and use #kilnfromhome for a chance to win a gift card to a local business!
