How to Work from Home Without Overworking


Working from home has its perks, but can be tricky to manage. It’s easy to blur the lines between “work” and “home”, but it’s important to set boundaries and practices to ensure you don’t overwork yourself.

Establish a Schedule

The most important practice is to establish a work schedule and stick to it. This means setting specific work hours and taking regular breaks. It also means setting aside time for yourself — whether it’s for a quick walk, a hobby, or a break from the laptop. Doing so will help maintain a healthy balance between work and home.

Set Boundaries

It’s important to also set boundaries for yourself and for your family. If you live with other people, make sure everyone understands the importance of your work hours and that you need to be left alone during that time. You should also be mindful of not taking work calls during family time — this is a surefire way to overwork.

Utilize Technology

Technology is your friend in managing work-from-home life. From project management tools like Trello to time tracking tools like Toggl, there are many tools available to help you manage your work and focus on the task at hand.


With the right practices and tools, you can easily make working from home work for you. Establish a schedule, set boundaries, and utilize technology to make sure you don’t overwork yourself. Doing so will make sure you can get your work done while maintaining a healthy balance between work and home.
