How To Actually Get Stuff Done While You’re Working From Home
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, a lot of companies have implemented work-from-home policies for their employees. However, this shift has raised questions about how one can be productive while working at home where there are so many distractions. If you’re one of those people worried about this work setup, we’ve got a few tips to help you become productive while you do your job at home!
KEEPING REGULAR HOURS IS KEY
Although it can be quite a challenge to maintain a regular working schedule at home, it is one of the best things you can do to be productive. If you had a pre-work work out routine before the coronavirus pandemic hit, try to keep it up at home. Maintaining regular working hours keeps you away from forming bad habits.
FIX YOUR WORKSPACE
Distractions can come in so many forms, so to keep them at bay you must designate a workspace in your house. It doesn’t have to be the most ideal office-type area, as long as its a distraction-free. You can utilize your dining table or even your kitchen counter, but try not to set it up in your bedroom. Because your mind and body links that space to sleeping, you won’t really find much productivity there as opposed to other areas of your house.
A HEALTHY DIET IS A MUST
Dropping by your cupboard for food every few minutes or so might be tempting during this time, since you might be working near your kitchen or dining area. Nevertheless, you need to resist the urge and eat how you normally ate back when day-to-day life was still normal. If you overeat, you might end up feeling lethargic and not get much work done. Also, healthy foods are great at regulating your mood and energy levels.
SET ASIDE YOUR PHONE & JUST PLAY MUSIC
As you work in your household, your cell phone and other gadgets can become some of the biggest distractions. The best thing that you can do to solve this problem is to set aside your phone where it won’t disturb you. Alternately, you can put on some music that’s easy to listen to. Just don’t listen to the disconcerting kind and be wary of the volume for the sake of your housemates.
SOCIALIZE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN
As in any conventional workplace, socializing is essential when it comes to working at home. Long days of seclusion and disconnection don’t do people’s mental states any good. Since we’re basically quarantined, reaching out to colleagues, family members, and friends via Zoom or Skype is the best way one can socialize for now.
TAKE NECESSARY BREAKS
Sunlight and some fresh air will do you good—especially when all the workload becomes too much. Take necessary short breaks and go on walks. It’s better if you have a dog to relish the outdoors with, as well. Moreover, these short breaks in-between every few hours are great for developing mental clarity and optimum productivity!
