6 Ways To Increase Your Productivity When Working From Home.

As we continue the work-from-home era, it has become a job in itself to keep focused and stay on task. In this short blog post we list a few important methods to help keep you on track and working to the best of your ability. 

1. Get Into A Routine - If you have the freedom to make your own hours, set a strict routine and stick to it. Once a routine is established, certain habits and decisions become automatic, freeing up your mind to focus on doing your best work.
2. Plan Out Your Day - Start your day by writing down the tasks you need to complete. Stay accountable by checking off each task as you complete it.
3. Start With Your Most Difficult Tasks - Research has shown that by starting your day executing more difficult tasks helps contribute to better, more sustained productivity throughout the day.
4. Define Your Workspace - This is arguably the most important aspect in staying on task and completing your work to a high standard when working from home. It is vital that you set up a space where you complete the majority of your work. Make sure it's clean and clear, with essentials only. Mess and additional nick-nacks can easily steal your attention away from the task at hand.
5. Take Regular Breaks - A study completed at Florida State University, revealed top performers in a variety of fields were more productive when working in blocks of no more than 90 minutes. To stay at the top of your game, taking regular breaks can help you keep fresh and energised to complete your work to the highest standard.
6. Limit Personal Social Media Use - Endless social media scrolling is an easy hole to fall into. Set limits on apps and designate specific times to check your socials, such as a lunch break.
