Quick Tips To Stay Focused When Working From Home

With the constant growth of the gig economy and the current Covid-19 pandemic, people are working from home or remotely

But, there's a little problem.

Staying at home for a long period of time can be demotivating and making us feeling nostalgic. These will lead to lack of focused and the low productivity levels.

In this article, I'll share with you some of the best tips to stay focused while working from home.

Create A Work Schedule

The best way to stay focused is to create a work schedule. Working at home requires discipline and with a work schedule, you know exactly what needed to be done and when do to them.

Create A Schedule To Stay Focused While Working From Home

There are many tools that you can use to schedule your work. My favorite is ClickUp that allows me to create multiple schedules (either on recurring or one-off types) and setting reminders.

A work schedule helps you to stay focused when working from home and you don't have to create a super complicated one.

Time for Workout

Staying healthy helps to promote better focus when working from home. Staying at home for a long time will create a sense of nostalgic and working out helps you to reduce stress.

Workout From Home

Aside from that, you should also focus on doing light stretching every 1 hour of work to keep your focus during working from home.

Time For Reading

Staying focused at home is all about having enough time for yourself. I find that reading helps me to keep my focus right and on top gear ... even when working at home (with all the stress that the kids around and other stuffs).

Reading Helps To Improve Focus When Working From Home

While there are many reading types, I tend to lean towards motivational and energy books.

Here are some books that you should read:

  • Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life...And Maybe the World (get it on Amazon)
  • You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life (get it on Amazon)
  • Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds (get it on Amazon)
  • The Mamba Mentality: How I Play (get it on Amazon)
  • How to Make Sh*t Happen: Make more money, get in better shape, create epic relationships and control your life! (get it on Amazon)

Improve Focus With Yoga And Meditation

Yoga and meditation helps. Yes, these are boring stuffs—but you will feel the focus level increase dramatically right after the first session.

Yoga And Meditation For More Focus At Home

While you can practise yoga and meditation at anytime of the day, my favorite time is still the early mornings and/or right before bed.

This gives me some level of calmness and I am able to be more focused throughout the day.

Here's a quick yoga challenge you can try from the comfort of your home!

Avoid Multitasking

If you want a better focused rate when working from home, you should avoid multitasking at all costs. Multitasking doesn't only slow you down, it reduces your ability to complete more tasks and produce better results.

Multitasking When Working At Home

Avoid multitasking and you will see an improved focus level when you are working from home.

Some of things that you never do when working from home:

  • Use social media when working
  • Distracted by television
  • Trying to complete two or more at the same time
  • Rush to complete a task
  • Having too many tasks in one day

Set Tiny Datelines

Last but not least, setting up tiny datelines can help you stay focused when working at home. 

Achieving tiny dateline gives you the needed psychological boost to continue solving more tasks. Take a look at thie video to learn more.
