How to Ensure Productivity While Working From Home

Around the world, many members of the workforce at working at home as a precaution against the Coronavirus. For those who normally spend their 9 to 5 in an office setting, adjusting to working from home might be difficult, as the separation of personal and professional is now slightly blurred. To ensure you remain focused and productive, approach each day with the same mindset as usual and remember you can get just as much at home as you can in the office. Below are some best practices you can implement while working from home.

1. Adhere to your normal office hours and avoid sleeping in
2. When getting dressed, be comfortable but don’t work in your pajamas
3. Give yourself enough time to get ready and eat breakfast before starting to work
4. If you don’t have an at-home-office, set up an area to do your work
5. Create a to-do list that is reasonably achievable within one workday
6. Utilize the same organizational tools that you use when in the office
7. Ensure you are drinking water throughout the day
8. Eat a healthy and filling lunch, and try to avoid excessive snacking
9. Stay off social media sites and keep the TV turned off
10. When the clock strikes 5 pm, step away from your work for the rest of the day
