Staying Productive While Working From Home.

Hey guys, it’s a new month, and the beginning of another quarter, which means;
New mindset
New goals
New ideas
New intentions
New focus.

Working from home can be a good or a bad thing for some people. It all depends on how you can maximize your time and not drift away because you’re in your comfort zone. I’m going to be sharing some tips on how to stay productive and organized while working from home.

Working from home can be very tricky and one can get distracted easily. Trust me feeling your best from 8am to 5pm everyday isn’t guaranteed. Some days will be better than others.
There are a lot of great benefits about working from home;
1) You become more productive. Less stress=More productivity.
2) It frees you from unnecessary drama that sometimes goes on at the office.
3) More flexible work hours.
4) You don’t have to commute daily.
5) Better health.

To enable you work from home effectively, here are a few tips that can help you stay productive while working from home;

  • Create a mini work space in your bedroom. A comfortable chair and a table is perfect. (Avoid working on your bed, it sometimes slows down your work pace).
  • Shower early in the morning before you start work, just like you would have done if you were going to the office.
  • Know your energy levels. This helps you to know your most productive hours of the day.
    I am more of an early morning and evening person, so I tend to work at a faster pace during those hours and cover up a lot of things.
  • Review your priorities every morning. It’s best to kick start your day when you know what lies ahead; not just for the day, but for the month and quarter too. Re-orient yourself to current milestones and looming deadlines. You’ll become more goal-oriented and strategic when you have all these in mind.
  • Build in routine chores. You can allocate time address the mundane items on your plate, so you can be mentally free to brainstorm creatively and focus on priorities.
  • Leave room for growth. Remote workers are productive folks, but sometimes sadly tend to forget our professional development. Invest 30–60 minutes a day on self improvement, reading recent research relating to your industry.
  • Schedule time to eat properly and take care of yourself. Remember, health is wealth.
