KEEP THE MORNING ROUTINE. Keep your normal morning routine just like you are planning on going to your office, including wearing what you would normally wear. There are many conveniences of working from home but keeping your normal routine and dressing for the occasion will help you stay mentally focused on your tasks for the day. 2. OVERCOMMUNICATE. We’re used to being able to reply to emails or other communication “in-person” when we walk by an office or see someone at a different meeting, but now it’s important to more effectively communicate virtually. This doesn’t mean you should overwhelm someone’s inbox with simple “OK” replies, but for example, if someone requested something from you and you need more time to work on it, reply and say: “Received, will have to you by end-of-day tomorrow.” This is also critical with citizen outreach right now, as many of our constituents are looking for more immediate answers.
