Structure Your Day Like You Would In The Office
You are your own personal supervisor when you work from home. It’s easy to lose focus without the external factors like meetings and presentations that break your schedule. To retain your focus, have a calendar with reminders on when a particular project should end and when another should begin.
Discipline Your Social Media Consumption
Social media is designed to make it easy for you to open and browse quickly. At work, though, this social media is easily accessible and can form a basic distraction even when you work in the office, under supervision. How much more when you’re working at home? To reduce the chances of spending unscheduled time on social media, remove them from your browser shortcuts. If possible, browse incognito so you can stay signed out of your accounts.
