Safe and Slick: Office Solutions For Moms Who Work At Home

You’re a busy working mom, who has a hundred and one things ticking through her brain at any given moment. Not only are you juggling parenthood, but you’re attempting to keep your business flowing from home too. Perhaps you opted for a career change once the little ones came along, but nothing should be getting in your way of working to your full potential. Keeping a safe office space can be tricky when you have kids running around, but don’t worry help is on the way. Give these solutions a try and you will have a much safer and child-friendly working environment in your home.

Simple Space

It is true that when you have a baby they seem to take up every single room in the house. Their bottles are stacked up in the kitchen, the bathroom is home to their soothing lotions and the lounge is full of brightly-coloured singing distractions to keep them busy. If possible try and keep your office space just for you. You need your workspace to be a place of serenity and clarity and you may not be able to achieve that if your space is being taken over by your baby. Choose a quiet corner in a room, or if you can arrange to have your own office space that would be even better. Keep your space simple and separate and you will be able to focus on your work with minimal distractions.

Secure Solutions

Curious toddlers and intrigued infants can often become a danger to themselves when their exploring the new and exciting things at home. You should allow them to roam free without worrying about what they’re getting their hands on, so keep your office child friendly. If you need to keep your laptop or computer out during the working day consider kitting it out with a
C-Slide usb port lock. You don’t want to find a half chewed cookie or a piece of lego stuffed into your USB ports, so avoid potential disasters by keeping them well-protected.

If you’ve got confidential or important documents lying around for your job, you might want to consider a lockable filing system. Instead of leaving your papers strewn across your desk for little grubby hands to grab, tuck them away neatly into a locked drawer. You won’t have to worry about those important files going walkabouts!

Time Tricks

Managing your time when you’re a money-making mom is easier said than done. It’s difficult to focus on your jobs at hand when you’ve got a gorgeous little one vying for your attention. If your child takes an afternoon nap try and maximize on this quiet time as much as you can. You may find that half an hour of silent time will boost your productivity rather than a couple of hours of distracted work!

You’re already doing a wonderful job and of juggling so many life aspects at the same time. So make your life easier for yourself and keep your working space safe for your family. You’ll soon get in the routine of working with a little one around and as long as you feel content in your work environment you’re bound to succeed.
