LED Lighting Creates A Healthy Routine In Your Remote Work
Learn how you can maintain a routine while working from home
As the COVID-19 pandemic necessitates social distancing, more people have been working from home than ever before. Working from home can pose several unique challenges to those who have no experience doing so. Among them, maintaining a routine without the physical separation of home and work can be difficult for some. Luckily, there are many technology tools available to help you adapt to your brand-new workspace. In this blog, we highlight specifically how LED lighting can help you to keep a routine while working from home in Portland, OR.
The Challenges of Working from Home
While working from home offers many conveniences, such as not having to commute to work, it also presents several unique challenges. Keeping a healthy work-life balance can be hard as you are working in the same space as you relax, so there is no physical separation between work and your personal time. It can be hard to decompress after a long day of work or stay productive during your work schedule.
It also makes it challenging to maintain a regular schedule. Since you don't have to wake up early to get ready for work and drive there, it can be tempting to roll out of bed whenever you want. Maintaining a routine is vital in creating a separation between your work and home life as well as improving your mental and physical health. Luckily, there are several ways to enforce a routine so you can get the most out of working from home.
Create Routine with Lighting Control
LED lighting control is a fantastic way to enforce a routine while working from home and encouraging a healthy work-life balance by creating a physical separation between the two through lighting. That’s because unlike incandescent lights, tunable LED fixtures adjust their hue to set the ideal ambiance throughout the day.
Schedule a wake-up routine with lights fading on slowly over thirty minutes, so you are gently awoken and do not sleep in. Your office lights will then turn to bright morning lighting at 9 AM to energize you and help you concentrate so that you can be productive. Your lighting can then change to a warmer tone to signal that it is time for a lunch break so that you don't forget to eat without a set time to do so. Finally, your lighting can help you to wind down at the end of the day with dimmable, relaxing lighting that lets you quickly decompress after a long day of work.
