How to Get More Done When You Work from Home

Remote Worker Holding His Baby While Working from HomeWorking from home allows you to enjoy many advantages. However, there are also some challenges. One of the usual problems remote workers in Churchill encounter is how to focus and stay productive throughout their working day. A lot of distractions and interruptions can threaten to disrupt your work when you are at home. To make sure you become more effective when you work from home, it is important to plan your day the right way. These few tips will help you stay focused on your work every day.

“Commute” to Work

Although there is no more need to be on the road, it is still very helpful to “travel” to your home workspace even if it’s only in the next room. When you separate your workspace from where you sleep or rest, you begin to train your mind to focus more as you work.

Start Strong

The first 15 minutes of your workday is very important. The way you begin your day can set the tone for the rest of your working hours. You will be more prepared to focus and work productively when you use those 15 minutes wisely. Prepare for work a bit early, organize your workspace, and do a few light stretches to ease your muscles. This sets the tone for a productive workday.

Make a Schedule

Working from home also usually comes with a more flexible schedule. But when mismanaged, you might end up having lower productivity. A schedule is one of the most important things to have if you want to successfully work from home. Your daily schedule should include breaks for meals, relaxation time, and set times for checking email and social media. Take a 5-minute break every hour. These frequent short breaks help keep you productive. This will help your mind and body relax and will keep you from easily getting tired.

Focus on Health

Taking a full lunch break is part of making sure you take care of your health while working from home. Keep healthy meals and snacks on hand. This can help you avoid snacking on whatever is handy when you get hungry. Also, don’t forget to move around. Make sure you schedule a fun physical activity each day as your regular exercise. Stand up and stretch often as well. Prolonged sitting has been shown to be dangerous to your health. You can keep these health problems away by staying active.

Go with the Flow

You can also do more work if you know yourself first. Have you noticed that every person feels more awake and energetic at certain times of the day? Work with your natural rhythms and schedule larger tasks during these peak periods as you can usually do more than if you tried to do the same at a different time. If you feel the need to clear your inbox or do some other task before you fully get into work mode, do so. Make sure you schedule your time to maximize the ebbs and flows of your energy throughout the day.
