It can be hard to be productive when you work from home. There are distractions everywhere, from the lay in you could be having to the tempting television. If you struggle to stay productive when you work from home, check out these 4 tips.
Wear something that isn’t your PJs
Sure, it is pretty cool that you can work from home in your comfies, but it can also ruin your productivity. Get yourself into the right mind-set every morning by putting on proper clothes to signal the beginning of your working day.
Create a commute
Plan a small trip around your block or to your local shop before you start working. This helps you to set a work day ritual, and it gives you the chance to plan out your day before you start.
Make your own work space
Working from your bed or sofa can give you back problems, and it makes it harder to get into a productive mind-set. Set up a desk and chair with good lighting in a free space that you can use. Consider taking your work outside your home occasionally by working in the park or a coffee shop to give you a change of scenery.
Just like anyone who works in an office, you need breaks. Little breaks help your mind to stay refreshed and focused, and it will boost your mood – no-one wants a stressful work day!
