The Best Methods To Boost Productivity and Separate from Distractions When Working From Home

Are you struggling to stay productive while working from home? You’re not alone. Here are some easy ways to boost your productivity when working from home. With people staying at home, families have developed their castles to provide superior entertainment, recreation, as well as work-at-home features right at home. This enhances convenience, but it also requires discipline and separation of work and play.

Once COVID-19 showed up, millions of people began working from home, and many still are working at home, and will continue to do so for a long time, or even the rest of their working lives. If you’re like millions of other people, you’ve probably found it difficult to stay productive when you’re working in the comfort of your home. We get it. Our homes are full of distractions and excuses to do anything but work. So, how do you stay focused and productive?




Develop a Daily Routine

Now that you’re not commuting to the office, it’s much easier to have a flexible routine. You might stay up later some nights and sleep in the next day because you can. While having flexibility in your routine sounds nice, at some point, it’ll catch up to you. Sticking to a regular routine is crucial. Structure your day as if you’re going to the office. That includes waking up at the same time, exercising, taking breaks, and getting dressed every day.

Have a Permanent Workspace

One of the biggest mistakes people make when working from home is not working in the same place every day. Consider your workspace a part of your routine—it gives you a foundation that’s constant. A surprising benefit of keeping your workspace in the same place is that it trains your brain to recognize you’re “at work.” Additionally, training your brain will support your productivity and get you in the right mindset going into your workday. You should also ensure your work from home setup has all the key factors to support your productivity, such as ergonomic office furniture. A market for mini-homes in the backyard has sprouted to meet the need for people that really want separation at home.




Set Boundaries and Communicate Them

The biggest challenge about staying productive when working from home is minimizing distractions. The best way to reduce and possibly prevent distractions is to set boundaries. You should communicate with your family or roommates and let them know when you need to take a call or when you’re in a meeting. In a perfect world, everyone would have a home office with a door, but that’s simply unrealistic. Communicate your needs, and your family or roommates will likely respect your privacy.

When COVID-19 first made us work from home, everyone did the best they could with their setup and productivity. That said, nobody expected we would work remotely for as long as we have. Our hope is that these easy ways to boost your productivity when working from home will support your workday and help you get more work done.
