"Get fully ready for the day and pretend you're actually going to work. Otherwise, you might find yourself back in bed."
- Anna Faber-Hammond
We were always fascinated by the idea of not going to the office every day and staying at home in a cozy corner and working, but thanks to this Covid-19 outbreak, this fascination is nothing more than a headache for most people. Surely you stay home, but it becomes harder to focus on your work.
Due to this pandemic, we are imprisoned in our homes, and working from home tends to blur the boundaries between work and personal life.
So here are some tips to stay productive while working from home:
Select a space
While you work from home you can choose any corner you want to, but ask yourself is that location enough to fuel your creativity? If not, then choose a space where you are most comfortable, which gives you positive vibes and keeps you stay productive while working from home with your focus on work.
Follow a routine
When you work in an office, you have a fixed time of going and coming, it's not the same at home. Making a routine will make your day hassle-free and it will be easier for you to divide your time between work, your family, and yourself.
Focusing on the same thing for long hours doesn't give a solution to your problems instead it increases your frustration. Taking small breaks in between will boost your mind and encourage the flow of new ideas.
Dress like you are at work
You know that work time starts now but you need to tell your brain that it’s work time, not relaxation time, and that will give you a lot more energy, so dress like you are going to the office. If it's hard for you to motivate yourself to get ready in the morning, remind yourself that it's important to dress for success.
