Working from home is a great way to be more productive and efficient. You can do everything from your living room, without having to commute. But working at home isn't always the easiest thing to do and finding a work-life balance is even more difficult.
Tip #1: Get Rid Of Distractions
Working from home can be very distracting. If you're working on your computer, it's easy to end up browsing Facebook or watching YouTube videos for a few minutes instead of making those phone calls.
Tip #2: Take Frequent Breaks
Breaks are important. If you try to work for hours without stopping, it will become difficult to pay attention during those conference calls. It's actually proven that taking frequent breaks is better than working continuously with no rest in between.
Tip #3: Make A Strict Routine
A routine can help you be more efficient at home. For example, if every day around the same time, you take a break to go walk your dog or clean up dishes in the sink, then it's easier for your mind to get used to that pattern and know when it's time for another break.
Tip #4: Get An Accountability Partner
This is one of the best ways to be more efficient when doing remote work. It can also help you stay on track in relationships, home life, and other aspects of your personal life and work life.
Tip #5: Take Notes and Make A Task List
Instead of relying on memory (because we all know how unreliable that can be), take notes and make a list every time something needs doing.
Tip #6: Get A Hobby That Requires Productivity
Having a hobby will make sure that when you get back in normal work hours, you are working and not thinking about other things. Plus, they add a little more joy to your life too, so it's a win-win situation.
Tip #7: Use the Pomodoro Method The Pomodoro method is another way for you to become more productive at home. It works by setting an alarm during work hours on your phone every 25 minutes (or 30 if that makes you more comfortable)
