COVID-19 has been declared a pandemic by WHO. Country after country are declaring a lockdown to curb the spread of the virus. This means that more and more businesses are getting people to work from home, at least for the time being. And chances are, you might be one of those working from home.
So how do you stay productive when working in the comforts of your home?
1.Create A Schedule
Scheduling is the art of planning your activities so that you can achieve your goals and priorities in the time you have available. We all need a kind of rhythm, and schedules are a great place to start.
Create a schedule that works best for you so that you’ll stick to it!
A great tip is to schedule your work according to your energy levels. If you’ve not heard about energy management, find out more here!
2. Plan Your Day Ahead
We’ve all heard the quote by Benjamin Franklin, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” We can’t stress how important it is to plan your day ahead.
Set your goals, set your targets, set your priorities!
Know what you want to accomplish for the day, know what are your negotiable and non-negotiable goals.
3. Have A Designated Workspace
You’ve heard it before – consistency is key.
And one way to maintain consistency is to have a designated workspace that you can go to whenever you work. It helps you settle quickly and to keep your mind focused on what you aim to accomplish.
P.S. Generally, a cluttered workspace is distracting and causes you to be less productive, whereas a clean workspace enhances productivity. Keeping your workspace minimal would be a great idea!
4. Take Breaks In Between
We attest that taking breaks in between tasks are not a hindrance to productivity. In fact, taking regular breaks will help you make better decisions, spark creative ideas and solutions, and stay focused.
5. Don’t Forget To Stay Connected
This is so important but so often forgotten. Don’t forget to stay connected.
Social distancing might have taken more tolls on our social life than we’d like to admit, and we all know nothing compares to connecting with a person face to face.
But as we try to flatten the curve, let’s take a moment to be grateful that technology is the light at the end of the tunnel of disconnectivity! Make that phone call, send that text, hold that Zoom conference call. Check up on those you love.
6. Stay Active
It is a known fact that exercise makes you 20% more efficient at work! The release of endorphins from exercise gives your mood a boost, increasing productivity.
If you have a NewLife Rebounder at home, try doing the Rebound Exercise. 20 minutes of rebound exercise is equal to jogging 3 1/2 miles in 32 minutes and swimming 800m in 16 minutes.
7. Maintain A Focused Mind
A fuzzy brain or a writer’s block, an hour on the same task and still no progress. We’ve all been there. A clear and focused mind is crucial for productivity.
