Teleworking has, as you know, innumerable advantages, but there are some important negative points to deal with. You have to detect them and have them very clear, so you can work on them and try to pass them to the positive side. The motivation among teleworkers, in general, is usually high, but there are times that can pose a problem for some workers.
Yes, teleworking can be very fun and enjoyable, but maybe if you spend a month without leaving home, it will not be that much. It is important to leave the house to get disconnected and change the air a little, is something important and that should always take into account the workers at a distance. There are people who, when not leaving, can not disconnect and separate the professional life of the staff, so it is important to take breaks and leave the house.
Teleworking allows you to have virtual contact with your co-workers, bosses and your clients, but it is important to try to start face-to-face meetings whenever possible. For a good performance of the work, in my personal opinion, it is absolutely necessary the visual and physical contact, the real contact. It does not have to be daily, and not even weekly, but I do think that once every fortnight, it is good to have a face-to-face meeting to share information about work and even talk about other topics. You can not lose that personal and face-to-face relationship, because I think that in addition to being important for many reasons, it is at work and helps to relieve that possible anxiety that some teleworkers do not leave the house.
Thanks to the internet we are able to reach places that were previously unimaginable. We are able to meet lots of people, professional contacts, clients, and so on. It is very good to work from home, and is even ideal in many cases, but it is important to know how to disconnect and maintain physical meetings, because in addition, this helps increase confidence among colleagues and improves relationships with customers, That "break" or that "disconnection" could well be done by holding these meetings face-to-face.
Distance workers can reduce their stress and anxiety with endless options. One of them that is frequently commented on in the forums, is the organization of meetings, events and biweekly or monthly appointments. These events and meetings, in many cases, are usually somewhat informal. The idea is to connect, have coffee, have breakfast or have lunch together and even have dinner. This type of practice usually works very well because in addition to achieving that rest and release, new negotiations can be initiated and new projects can be tackled. These meetings, in many cases, include employees, bosses, clients and some friendships, so they are always always interesting, because when crossing contacts, new business opportunities can arise.
In short, to maintain a good motivation index if you are a teleworker, it is important that you maintain a smooth and cordial relationship with your co-workers, your bosses and your customers. Try to talk with them as much as possible, within reasonable values. For example, once every fortnight would be fine. On the other hand, it is highly important that you carry out a healthy diet, practice sports and, above all, take to the streets daily for a while. One of the things you can use to get out is to have a coffee, or make the purchase. It usually works very well.
