If you’re now working from home, then you have to find a way to be productive. That can be a challenge if this is the first time you’ve worked from home at this level. It can also be a challenge if you’re also taking care of kids at home. Fortunately, there are ways to make your remote work more productive. Here’s how:
Set Up Working Hours
The classic workday is 9 to 5. If that works for you, then you can keep those hours. After all, you’ve also managed to take care of your home when you were working. Because you aren’t commuting, you could add up to an hour of your work day. That could have you working less because you can get more done within that 9 to 5 zone.
Setting up your workday should also mean ending your workday at a definitive time. When you log off from work, stay that way. You don’t want to feel like you’re working
Close Out the Distractions
At work, you might not have time for social media. You might also be restricted by doing so. At home, it is a different story. You need to treat your workspace like your office. That means keeping those social media sights “closed” until you check out for the day.
Get Dresses for Work
As tempting as it might be to roll out of bed and start work, you should keep up with your work routines of getting dressed. It might mean that every day is “casual” day but you shouldn’t go to work in your pajamas.
Tidy up First
You should keep your workspace as tidy as possible. That can extend to the rest of the house, too. It might be a good idea to take care of all your cleaning chores before you start work each day. You might also be inspired to take on bigger decluttering projects over the weekend. If this results in the discovery of a lot of unwanted rubbish items, then you should call up Junk King Chico to get it removed.
