Now most of us are confined to our houses we’re waking up to the reality of how to work from home. It can be tough at the best of times but now, thanks to COVID-19, many of us are having to contend with self-isolation whilst working out how to keep our businesses going. Not to mention, getting up to speed with different methods of communication, home schooling our children, poor broadband connections, and a host of other distractions.
This doesn’t mean that it can’t be done, though.
Here are some helpful tips to get the most out of working from home and ways to stay productive:
Try and stick to your regular hours
If your usual office hours are bound by particular hours of the day, then try and stick to these. Keeping to your usual working/break times will help to minimise disruption and assist in keeping work/leisure time separate.
Plan your day
At the start of each day, create a list of tasks in priority order. Having objectives for each day can stop you from becoming distracted or procrastinating.
Get out of your PJs
It can be tempting to simply roll out of bed and get to work in your pyjamas. However, getting up, having a shower and dressing for success as you usually do can get you in the right headspace for working. Plus, at the end of the day, it’ll feel all the more relaxing getting back into your comfies!
Make a home office
If you have the space or facilities to do so, then set up a designated area for working in. Try to set up a desk with all you need to work. This way, when you’re in that designated area, your brain will tell you that it’s time to work, not relax.
