Going to a worksite every day gives us a daily routine and structure, but working from home suddenly gives us all the freedom we ever wished for! But, with social media, Netflix, and other distractions trying to grab our attention, how do we stay focused and on top of our business? It’s challenging, we know, but here are 6 tips for staying focused on your hustle so you can remain productive while also having fun and staying relaxed during your work-from-home life…
REVISIT YOUR MORNING ROUTINE
Before jumping right into work, carve out some time to meditate, eat breakfast, go for a walk or read.
FIND YOUR DEDICATED WORK ZONE
Find a distraction-free area where you can get some natural light and can keep all of your work materials together.
Make a pact with your favorite coworker to checkin weekly to collaborate on tasks and stay motivated.
Try this! Set a timer to work in a sprint for 30-45 minutes. When your alarm goes off, stretch, walk around, drink water, grab a snack, or do whatever you need to refresh your mind and body.
Power through your work in 30-45 minute bursts. Take mini-breaks in between each burst to stretch, get a snack, and refresh before starting again.
TAKE ACTIVE BREAKS
Go for a walk, make lunch, or watch a quick Netflix episode during your breaks. Go ahead. Get distracted. You earned it.
30 minutes before your day ends, begin to wrap up communication with your team. When the day is done, close your laptop and turn your phone notifications off.
