it’s on the road or from home. When many people think of remote working, they imagine a
person lounging on the couch in their pajamas with a laptop. Does this vision stir up images

remotely. Here are some simple tips.
1. Keep the same routine as when you go
into the office.

are more productive ones.

remotely, the line between work and personal
life blurs more than ever.
