Work at Home Sleepiness: Ways to Combat Sleepiness at Work


There are many people who love to try out homebased works because they can do their work right in the comfort of their own home. If you are someone who is thinking of going to this type of work, you have to know that you will get more challenge in working at home than the office as there is more distraction at home because of its environment.


Home is perhaps the most comfortable place where you can be. This may cause you to be more relaxed and sleepy while in the middle of working. Thus, may result to not meeting your deadlines.


So if you want to get rid of this problem, you need to do the following tips and be able to do your work.

First, have a designated place for work as much as possible. If you have more space at home, place your workstation on other places aside from the bedroom. Since you are sleeping on your bed, there is a great chance that your body has been conditioned to get sleepy upon seeing it inside your room.


Second, if you feel sleepy while working in front of your computer, make sure to move away from the computer so you will not associate sleepiness with the computer. Once the sleepy feeling is gone, you can go back to your workstation and work.


Finally, make sure to maintain proper posture while working. Many homebased workers are now investing on durable and comfortable office chairs in their homes. However, this will cause the back to be a bit slouched. Slouching does not only bring your back to inappropriate posture but it will bring the body to a relaxed state that will make you sleepy. To avoid this, make sure to place back supports that will make your back straight.


Now that you know these tips, you are now ready to combat sleepiness and work properly even you are in your home.
