Working from home may sound fun. You don’t have to get up early in the morning to get ready for the office and do work at any time. However, despite all the fun, there are some challenges and constraints when working from home during the COVID-19 outbreak. So, we share tips that can help you work from home more efficiently.
Create a "To-Do List"
This way may seem like the old-fashioned way. But, listing all the things to do will help you stay focused while working from home and give you a starting point at the beginning of each day. The list will serve as a daily reminder of what to do.
Choose a place where you are comfortable working. This space is reserved for work only, such as a home office. Ensure the room has complete equipment to work, including computers, printers, equipment for video conferencing, paper, pens, etc. When your workspace looks like an office, it's easier for you to stay focused.
Schedule Your Day
Set your working hours when you are confident you can be focused and productive at work. This is very important to stay focused while working from home. Tell family members and good friends that you don't have time to socialize indefinitely, even when you're at home. Instead, chat with them briefly during your break to boost morale. And stay on schedule by really working on the time you have dedicated to your task.
Restrict Media Use
Checking your cell phone regularly reduces focus and makes you a less productive employee. Even more so during a pandemic, news of the covid-19 virus can also make you anxious, which in turn makes you lose focus on your job. To avoid these pitfalls (and maintain your mental well-being), try this method:
Set a Timer on Your Phone: As you sit at your desk, WhatsApp app notifications often catch your eye. To avoid being distracted, set a timer on your phone for the amount of time you need to focus on work, turn off notifications, and then place your cell phone out of sight. The timer helps organize your time and is a reminder that you shouldn't look at your phone.
