The biggest positive in recent years is that working from home is becoming more popular and many companies are adopting this practice. When you work from home, it can be easy to get caught up in the daily grind and forget to take time for yourself. But working from home doesn’t have to be just work, without peace and rest. In fact, there are many ways to make working from home more enjoyable, including bringing your home office to the mountains.
If you’re lucky enough to live in or near the mountains, taking your workflow to the mountains can be a great way to get some fresh air and beautiful views. But before you settle into your mountain home office, there are a few things you should know. We have prepared for you a few things important for an efficient office space in the mountains.
A good internet connection is a must
If you’re going to move your home office to the mountains, it’s important to make sure you have a good internet connection. After all, you’ll need to be able to stay in touch with both your colleagues and clients. There are several ways to ensure a good internet connection in the mountains, including using a satellite internet connection or mobile hotspot.
Think about the weather
When working from a home office in the mountains, weather can be a factor. If it’s winter, make sure you have a good heating system. And if it’s summer, you’ll need to be aware of the risk of thunderstorms. Both in summer and in winter you will enjoy wonderful views, fresh air, and you can always combine the work process, as long as your work allows it, in summer with a walk, and in winter with skiing or snowboarding.
If you have the opportunity to spend your summer working from the mountains, you can always take the laptop and enjoy a fragrant cup of coffee outside. At Ruskovets we have great outdoor spaces where you can spend your working day. In winter, you can settle down with a cup of hot chocolate in front of the fireplace in the lobby bar.
Convenience is of great importance
The fact that you will move your home office with Ruskovets Resort does not mean that you will not be comfortable, quite the opposite! Make sure your home office is organized in a way that’s comfortable for you, including having a comfortable work and “home” corner. Don’t forget to pack your laptop, charger, wireless mouse, mouse pad, and other office supplies that will help you stick to your workflow.
Don’t forget to give yourself time to rest
When working from a home office in the mountains, it’s important to take breaks. Get up and walk around or go outside for some fresh air.
Unless you have a very important deadline, try to set a boundary between work and rest, this way you will stay as productive as possible and avoid the overload that can have long-term consequences for you. Take time for yourself away from your phone and computer. Why not enjoy one of our Onsen therapies or a mineral water pool? Remember that rest is extremely important, both for your body and mind.
Organize your time well
Give yourself the tools to create a telecommuting plan to keep you on track as you think about how to telecommute effectively.
With telecommuting, you won’t have a co-worker or boss watching what you’re doing, so sometimes you get distracted. No one is immune to distractions, which is why we look at how to avoid them in our guide to telecommuting tips.
To increase your efficiency, stick to working hours. Whether you start at 9 or 10 doesn’t matter. Try to stick to the schedule you’ve created, making sure to make time for rest as well.
When working from a home office in the mountains, it’s important to stay organized. This will help you stay on top of your work and avoid getting overwhelmed. Use a planner or to-do list to keep track of your tasks and create a system to archive your work.
The 20-20-20 rule becomes much nicer when you’re in the mountains. Look away from the screen every 20 minutes or so and look at something about 20 meters away for about 20 seconds. This is a method that helps you keep your eyes in good condition.
Another advantage of a home office in the mountains is that if you have children, you will provide them with fresh air and a place to play, and ideally with us you will also find a children’s corner where there are animators provided, under whose supervision your children can be play while you complete several work tasks.
Working from a home office in the mountains can be a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. But before you settle in, there are a few things you should know. Use this remote work from home office guide in the mountains, and you’ll be able to work while enjoying a beautiful landscape, a cup of coffee or tea, and fresh air.
