πŸ’‘5 Tips for Staying Productive When Working From Home πŸ’‘

βœ… It can be difficult to stay productive when juggling the demands of your daily job with family and home concerns for employees who have remote work arrangements. Here are five pointers to help you stay organized and meet deadlines while working from home:

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Plan a Schedule With Your Family

During the work week, your school-aged children might be at home. Caring for children can make it difficult for parents who need to work while their children are at home.

If you find yourself in this situation, it is important to create a clear schedule for the entire family. Consider how you might coordinate your schedules to accommodate the need for child care - perhaps one spouse works in the mornings and the other works later in the day. Alternatively, you could consider getting up an hour earlier to have more time to work while the house is quiet. This may relieve some of your workload later on.

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Create Your Own Workspace

Though it may be tempting to work from your bed or couch, try to establish something more formal. Perhaps you have a makeshift workspace in the dining room, or you have a dedicated desk or office space in your home. Ideally, your workspace should have a door to block out any distractions, and it should be stocked with all the supplies and equipment you might need nearby, such as a computer, printer, paper, headphones, and so on. You'll want to avoid getting up frequently to retrieve items you might need, as this will only reduce your productivity.

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Get Up Early and Jump Right In.

It's tempting to want to sleep in when you don't have to rush out the door to get to work. However, if you're having trouble staying productive, getting up early is sometimes a good strategy. Set an alarm for about an hour before your spouse or children wake up. Make a cup of your favorite morning beverage and get to work on your emails or a heavier assignment. When the house is quiet, you'll be surprised at how much you can get done.

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Make a Daily To-Do List

Make a daily to-do list to hold yourself accountable. Make a task list for the next day at the end of each workday, detailing what you need to get done and by when. You should also include any meetings or phone calls in which you are participating. The goal is to bring up that list as soon as you log in the next morning to help you get started on the right foot.

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Have Office Hours, if Possible

Set specific hours for when you'll be available by phone, email, or online and working if your employer allows it. Professional work is important, but so is taking time to unwind, enjoy your loved ones, and simply relax. Check that you're setting reasonable boundaries on both a professional and personal level.

πŸ’― Bottom Line

Working from home certainly comes with challenges. But establishing a schedule, setting clear expectations with your loved ones and eliminating distractions can all help to ease the burden.
