Today we are going to discuss and help you out on avoiding things you must not do while working from home that might distract you from getting your tasks done. Many newbies of the WFh struggle a lot on how they can manage to do home chores, family time, and more while practicing social distancing. This can be a lot for newly transitioned workers, this can be stressful and quite challenging. That is why today, we will help you identify the things you need to avoid in order to organize you wfh journey:

Avoid Watching Movies While Working

Some people can work and be productive with white noise or simply having the TV on as a background while working but, this cannot be the same to all. Some workers can find this distracting and can easily lead to unfocused work. You may be lost in translation or get invested in the scene hence this can take up your time rather than help you finish your task. Rather than having the TV on, try to have music as a background. Having music as your background then to increase productivity as this relaxes your mind rather than distracts.

Create A Private Space

Working at home at the same time having your family at home can be difficult so you must set some boundaries and create a private space wherein you are only there to work. This is much like having me time but specifically for work. Disruptions such as your pets seeking attention, your kids wanting something or your spouse, partner, or roommate needing something can easily create an uncomfortable feeling. 

Have A Schedule

Keeping a schedule will be very helpful for you and your wfh journey. Start with what to do during your work, schedule everything so that you can ensure to finish all tasks right down. After work, schedule everything you need to do at home like cooking dinner, doing your laundry, eating out with your friends, me time, and more. Schedules also make you productive and give you less anxiety thinking that you must have missed out on something. 

Start On Time, End on Time

Most remote workers suffer from procrastination. Often they think “I am at home, hence I have plenty of time” but of course time flies even if you are not doing anything, and this leads to more work piled than more work done. The best thing to do is to start on time, if you are bound to start work at 9:00 AM start doing things at 9:00 AM, most remote workers have flexible time but if you start at specific hours in a day you will appreciate how you can use your time efficiently rather than starting anytime you like, plus you should set when to end. Starting on time means ending work on time which is part of organizing your work at home. 

Do Not Overwork

Most time, workers tend to overwork as they are reliant on more time due to the nature of working from the comfort of your own home, however, this leads to overworking which can lead to serious work burnouts. Overworking at home isn’t different from overworking onsite, the only difference is you are at home. Our best advice is to disconnect once you are done with your work and enjoy your time off.
