Working at Home – Escape from Your Computer

All dedicated computer users probably understand what it is like to be really engrossed in whatever computer activity we might be involved in and unable or unwilling to stop even momentarily. However it is important to understand how seriously unhealthy it is not to get up regularly to rest the pressure that is being put on your entire skeletal system.

You really need to get your circulation going by moving around. This can take the form of short walks around your house, or some type of stretching exercise. It doesn’t have to be longer than a few minutes every hour or two but should definitely not be ignored.

At the same time you should be aware that your eyes need to rest as well. There is one exercise that involves looking at something as far away as possible (out a window for example). Focus on that for a few minutes. Your eyes will not be stuck at whatever distance is between you and your computer monitor. You can also alternate this with just closing your eyes for a few minutes to rest them.

None of these suggestions are remotely close to ‘slacking’ – they are necessary to maintain your good health. Look at it like if you were in too much back pain to work. Your neck is stiff, your lower back is painful, and you are not able to stand it after a while and must take time off to recuperate. This represents lost productivity and consequently income in addition to ruining your health.

If you do abuse your spine, one thing that is very effective and much healthier than pain pills or even OTC pain remedies is to get an ice pack – Ideally one of those that usually has a blue gel and is reusable indefinitely. It lives in your freezer and you take it out and use it for not more than 20-minutes on the same spot off and on.

Three more tips you should be aware of to alleviate some of the strain on your lower back that comes from too much sitting, etc., are as follows:

#1 Employ some sort of a footstool (a phone book works). You will feel right away how you are more comfortable not straining;

#2 Be sure that your computer keyboard and mouse are exactly in a straight line with your hands. This means no reaching up or down and straining your wrist and neck;

#3 Your monitor should be exactly at eye level – again this is no straining to look up or down. It should naturally be straight ahead.

If you want further information – just Google ‘ergonomics’.

Working At Home – What More Could You Do?

If you are fortunate enough to work from home either part or full time, you have a lot more time on your hands than you may realize. When you work outside the home the usual time span for work is 8-hours. You may also include an hour for commute time and another for lunch.


24-hour clock

So you have this small window where you need to get everything done or you start to fall behind or are not meeting deadlines. This creates a special stress that is in addition to all the other time constraints you have to meet. However when you work at home it is not as limited.

You actually have 24-hours in a day and right off the top you can see where that is 3 times as much time as you have to get things done if you have a job. It is not only that you can take advantage of all the hours in a day, but you can use those hours in any way you feel most comfortable.

For example, if on Monday you want to go shopping and out to lunch, you can do your work when you get back. Then on Tuesday you want to dig in and get your work done first thing. So you work for 4-hours and then get ready to head out to the gym. When you get back maybe you do some more work or not.

The point is you can both meet deadlines and be flexible. You can be comfortable. This type of environment is what stimulates creativity and productivity. If you enjoy what you are doing, it makes life so much more fun. Of course if you have a family you can probably see where you would have more time to spend with them.

If you sit down right now and make a tentative schedule for the next week, you will see all the free time you have to fill in with both work and play, You may remember the song from the 60’s where they say ‘relax and float downstream’. You can do that!

Work at Home – Always Be Early or On Time

Especially if you are taking your home business seriously, you will want to be proactive. If you really expect to earn an income online you will need to be engaged in your business. Once you get your website or affiliate link online, that is not all there is to it.


Use your time wisely!

On ‘Autopilot’ does not mean there is nothing to do. You should implement as many things as you can to promote your business. What is true about autopilot is that you do not have to be online to make a sale.

The affiliate programs will handle your transactions and will give you a report of your commissions earned. Technically you can make sales 24-hours a day because your links and advertising are always running on the world-wide-web (globally).

So once you get everything set up you just need to check to be sure here are no system errors that are preventing your site(s) to display. You also need your hosting account to be running and that your domain name registration is current. (website)

It is also important that you check your reports at the affiliate programs to be sure that there are no problems with members or payments either to you or to your customers. It may be critical because people will just quit the program if they don’t understand something, or they may decide not to join in the first place.

If you know you have things you need to do, try not to wait for the deadline. If you can accomplish some tasks in the meantime this would always be best. Stay ahead of the game.

You do not know in the near future that you will encounter obstacles that you need to resolve before you can move forward. If you have to rush everything it is an environment where errors are more likely to occur as a result.

Really the bottom line is that you like having a home business and you may even enjoy doing all the necessary procedures. This will be a lot more possible if you take an organized approach. You may find that in the spare time you created by being proactive, that you may now expand your portfolio of opportunities. You have time.
