When you are working from home, the toughest thing is to concentrate and be productive. It’s so easy to sleep in longer, get up when you like and do whatever is in your way to do. So before I totally fall in that mood, here are some tips to get a productive workday after all at home.
1. GET UP EARLY
It isn’t easy to get up early if you are someone who likes to sleep in late and wake up late in the morning. I’m so guilty of that. That is the reason why I’m trying to get my 8 hours sleep and be more energized in the morning.
2. MAKE A SCHEDULE
Making a schedule for the day helps you to get the work done that you have to get done. Sometimes you don’t have a lot of work to do, so it’s a great idea then to squeeze households chores in the schedule for the day.
3. EAT BREAKFAST
As I still don’t have a dining table (my husband to blame..period!!), I tend to eat behind my laptop. I always began my day when I was working full time with a hot cup of tea and I still do that. It’s so relaxing to start the day with a delicious cup of tea.
4. CHECK MAIL
Before diving into the work, it’s a good thing to check your mails. Take your time to read and answer your mails. You will have that part done for the morning.
5. GET OFF SOCIAL MEDIA
Yessss…It will take over. Trust me, before you know it, you’re 5 hours later and you’ll just know who got married, got a baby or has moved.
6. MAKE LUNCH DATES
I love working from home, but sometimes you are seeing yourself and nobody else. So it’s a great way to get productive to get out of the house and go have lunch with some friends or clients. Also a great way to get some fresh air and check out what’s going on out there.
Hope these tips will help you get more productive at home. Do you also have some tips for me? Please share them in the comment section below.
