Covid-19 has led many companies to suggest that employees work from home. For many, remote working is a new reality and that people need to get used to.

Whether it’s done by intention or by requirement, working from home has its advantages, like avoiding your daily commute. But it also means it’s up to you to encourage yourself and get as much out of your time as you would in an office setting.


Tips to stay productive


To help you, here are some of the tips on how to stay focused and productive while you work from home

  • Make yourself an office, or work “station” area

 This will be the place where you do your work. Taking your laptop and plopping down on the couch in front of the television will present many enticements. Thus, invest in a good work desk, chair, and computer so that you can work effectively. 

  • Create a to-do list for the tasks you need to accomplish every day

Having a checklist of the things you need to get done will encourage you to visualize your improvement. It will also provide motivation.

  • Minimize distractions

Social media provokes you to keep on checking the feed. Closing the non-work tabs is the best option to ignore distraction. If you keep Facebook open on your computer, you will undoubtedly keep flipping back to it to check for new posts.
