Tips and Tricks for Working From Home 3 Ways to Maintain Productivity

As I write this, many of us are still working from home. While it's highly convenient for some to work through their task lists at home, not seeing family members and coworkers is challenging and causes others to feel lonely, unproductive, and worried. If you fall into this latter group or simply want to streamline your working habits at home, here are some ways to stay healthy and productive. Create a Routine First, keep up with your daily schedule to ensure your routine is consistent. For example, if you usually work out in the morning, call your family at lunch, and go for a walk in the evenings, build your schedule to include those activities (even if you have to modify them). Additionally, outlining what you need to accomplish each day gives you a better understanding of your bandwidth. With a realistic time frame for projects, you can finish tasks on time and stay on top of everything.

with your office's internal communication program to let others know when you’re available for questions or diligently working. This way, your peers know when to reach out, and you don’t have to address work issues while you’re off the clock. If working with these programs is new to you, take some time to familiarize yourself with them so you don’t lower your productivity. Designate aWorkspace It is important to try to maintain some work-life balance, even while working from home, so setting up shop on the kitchen counter or in the living room isn’t the best idea. Despite your family’s best efforts, there will inevitably be distractions throughout the day as people grab a snack or fold the laundry. It is best to create a “home office” for yourself in a spare room, bedroom, or walk-in closet so you can have a distraction-free zone. It is also important to have all of the office supplies you need at home, including pens, printer ink, and notepads.

Maintain Communication It’s common for companies to use some form of collaboration or messaging program. When out of your brick-and-mortar office, use the "status" tool available
