Whether you’re self-employed or work in an office, chances are you’ve worked from home before and understand how much of an impact environment will have on your productivity level. Working from home actually can increase your productivity as you are given the freedom to design the home office you’re most comfortable in to get work done!
1. Quiet As a Mouse
Choose a corner of your house that is away from the road or your children’s play area so that you will not be distracted by the traffic condition on the road, or your children’s laughter. Though there are some who requires white noise to help them to focus, most of us requires a peaceful space to concentrate on the task at hand.
2. Declutter Like Marie Kondo
Instead of asking if certain items sparks joy on your office desk, ask if they help you to spark productivity. Does it help you in your work? If the tool isn’t necessary, it’s best to keep it away from your desk so that it does not become a distraction in the end! Creating some space allows you to work more efficiently and it also helps to declutter your mind too!
3. Natural Lighting
Lightings are also crucial – make sure there is a good lighting so that you are not straining your eyes as your work. Cool lights are better than warm lights for concentration, so even if you want to create a cosy ambience for your home office, best to use cool lights!
4. Create a To-Do List
Time just seems to pass by quickly when you’re working from home – it’s easy to lose track of time! Create a to-do list for that day and keep it somewhere you’ll be able to see at one glance. It will help you to keep track of your progress for the day, and you’ll be less likely to miss out any important task you have to complete for the day!
5. Take Breaks
When you’re feeling tired, it’s perfectly fine to take a break from your work! By taking breaks, your mind will feel much more refreshed, increasing your productivity! Just remember to time your breaks and return to your task to get them done by the end of the day!
