How to be productive when working from home?



We're all spending more time in our homes.

Some of us, myself included, had to bring the office to our house and learn to share it with family members and even pets.

Adapting to working from home without any previous prep can be hard, especially when you lack the space and still haven't grown used to your new habits.

I'm now readapting to the old routine I followed when I worked from home last year and that previous experience is helping me get back on track easily.

So I decided to write down what I believe to be 10 essential things to take into account if you want to be productive and organised when working from home.

Even more than in a regular office, I find that a strict routine is essential while you're working from home.

You really don't have colleagues to keep you accountable for your hours, habits and posture during the day, and you don't have to rely on public transportation schedules or the traffic to know when you should leave the house in the morning.

The lack of physical boundaries also makes it especially hard to be able to switch between home and office mode and this is even worse if you don't have an actual home office separated from your bedroom or living room.

There are 10 things you can take into account that will be applicable to people in most situations and will help shape your overall mindset and habits during this time.
