No, I am not going to talk about the tips and tricks to handle the digital transcription job. Instead, I am going to talk about certain things you should do if you want to avoid stress and maintain work-life balance while working as a home-based digital transcriptionist.
Work with a plan. Don’t start work just like that. Chalk out a schedule, and make sure it is a feasible one. You may choose to make daily plans or weekly or even monthly ones. But make sure you stick to it. Make sure you work only during the working hours you have fixed.
Take logical breaks during work. It is important to take rest and relax even when you have a lot of work, in fact, especially if you have a lot of work. Take logical breaks during work.
You should plan a vacation every couple of months.
Pay attention to your health. Make sure that your home-office is comfortable. Invest in a comfortable chair that does not cause pain in the neck or the back. Don’t let work affect your health. Eat your meals on time. Spend a few minutes exercising everyday. Going for a walk in the morning will help you keep fit for the rest of the day.
Spend time with your loved ones. Your family and friends are your biggest de-stressors. Plan your work in such a way that you get to spend some quality time with your family everyday. Keep in touch with friends and meet them once a week.
Spend time on yourself. Don’t let professional and social responsibilities take a toll on you. Spend some time on yourself every day. Indulge yourself in your favorite hobby every few days.
All these tips would really help you stay fresh in your mind and offer a competitive digital transcription service.
