Working from home has become the new reality of a lot of people around the world. Trying to stay focused while working from home isn’t the easiest thing to do, so to help you figure things out, we’ve highlighted some productivity hacks;

 

Select a Dedicated Workspace

Create a dedicated workspace or home office. Having a dedicated workspace you can work from can help you get into the right mindset and prevent you from distractions.

 

Clean your workspace

Do you know the saying Cleanliness is close to godliness? Well, in this case, it’s a good way to stay productive. It’s important to maintain a clean workspace and limit distractions. Limit what you have on your desk to just the bare essentials. Always keep in mind the saying — Clean desk, clean mind.

 

Set Your Work Hours

Have your set work hours right from the start. Decide on a work schedule that is most convenient for you and your employers. It is important to have a routine to stick to and a motivating work structure at home, having this will go a long way to help manage your time.

 

Use lists

Lists are awesome. They help organize ideas, projects, articles and problems into manageable pieces, making the task at hand much more doable. A to-do list is something everyone swears by, but the real key lies in prioritization. You can break tasks into big, medium and small. This helps you focus your efforts properly

 

Set Your Schedule for Next Day Before Sleeping

Make a nighttime routine. Spend 15 minutes and create a list of tasks that you’re going to do the next day. Pick an important task that you’ll do first the next morning. This habit will set a tone for the next day.
