Work-From-Home Tips from the PRT Team

The world as we know it has changed significantly over the past few weeks. We went from hosting dinner parties, planning music festivals, and enjoying lunches with coworkers to spending most of our day in the home with our families and roommates. Here at Portable Restroom Trailers, we have stayed positive, supporting not only each other, but the many industries that are still out there working hard. Our restroom trailers assist nurses in hospitals, grocery store clerks, warehouse employees, and so many more that are keeping our day-to-day as normal as possible. One of the groups most affected by mandates to stay indoors are the office workers. Some have been practicing their daily work routine for over 15 years and now have to adjust to working remotely. For many, this is a luxury that they’ve dreamed about since they heard it was an option, but some crave the structure of a separate work space. The internet jokes about working in pajamas and in the comfort of their beds, while others feel like they get distracted by to-do lists around the home.When working from home, how do you maintain work-life balance? For those new to remote work or who may need to polish up their routine, this one's for you! The Portable Restroom Trailers team has been 100% work-from-home since its beginnings in 2007. Now a multi-million dollar business, our team has learned the tips and tricks to master a successful, profitable, and happy remote work routine. See tips from our employees below and build your perfect at-home workday. Designate a work space “If you can find a space in your home where you can shut a door, that is best.” - Melanie, National Sales Specialist & Client Services Evaluate your work needs“One big thing for me was learning and adapting to working with home office equipment vs. big commercial equipment that most corporate offices have such as copiers, scanners, and broadband. In most cases home office equipment & internet does not have the speed or capacity as in office equipment so you will need to adjust your working style and expectations.” - Wanda, Inventory Manager Get Ready in the morning“Waking up at the same time, showering, and dressing for a casual office has been my must over the years. No, hair and makeup are not always done. :) ”  - Vanessa, National Accounts Specialist Prioritize your work day“In the morning take a few minutes and set the intention/outcome of the day in terms of how you'd like to feel and what you'd like to accomplish.” - Amy, Chief Operating Officer“Give yourself set working hours!” - Ivy, Administrative Assistant“Write it down! Take time to make a list of your work goals for the day. I usually set 4-6 items to check off of my list (outside of email and admin tasks) to make sure I accomplish my daily goals. Challenge yourself but don’t over-commit yourself. That feeling of satisfaction when you check everything off of your list at the end of the day is what it’s all about!” - Camille, Content Manager“Review tasks you set from the afternoon the day before that did not get completed. Prioritize them in the morning.” - Amy Get active“Take a break to do push-ups, planks or jumping jacks every time you go to the bathroom... keeps you alert and adds little bits of physical activity to the day”  - Ivy“You are cooped up in your house all week; how should you deal with stress? Keep your healthy routine! Stay healthy and active with meditation, yoga, running, HIIT training.” - Vanessa“Move your body. Even if it's 5 minutes every hour, stand up and stretch. This affects your overall productivity.” - Amy Take breaks“Go get a cup of coffee, take a snack break. Because everything I like is here at home, I used to just grab what I want and work straight through the day when I began working with Portable Restroom Trailers. Then, I’d feel burned out and over tired. Breaks are just as important at home as they are at the office.”  - Melanie“I occasionally LEAVE for lunch.. Get in the car and go somewhere!” - Ron, National Sales Director WORK during work hours“Do not make the mistake of thinking that you can get things done around the house. No! You’re working, you're busy, you don't have time to clean the house. Maybe change laundry over on your break, but just saying - don't set yourself up to fail whether it be your expectations on house work or your job.” - Melanie   Give yourself time to transition“When you commute to and from work every day you get that little transitional time in the car to get in the right headspace and process your day. Working from home doesn’t allow this and it can make you feel unprepared in the morning, and wound too tight at the end of the day. Just a 10 minute buffer on each end of the workday makes a big difference for me.” - Ivy End your work day“Follow your set office hours: It is a must to put down the phone, turn off the computer, and end your day. If not, you will be working 24/7.” - Vanessa“At the end of the day, QUIT and Go Home! It may sound funny, but that's how you have to handle working from home” - Ron Enjoy your time off“Family time is very important as we are learning during this difficult time. We cannot take our families for granted because life as we know it can change at any moment.” - Wanda
