The period of March-April 2020 has made billions of working people work remotely. Now, work from home may seem interesting, but at the same time it brings challenges on staying productive and sane throughout.
The biggest difficulty of working from home is deliverables being the same as office but not the environment. The challenge here is the home environment.
So, what are the tips you must follow while working at home? Here are 4 tips to stay productive when working from home:
- Don’t be in Bed
Starting from when you wake up. This is one of the most common mistakes committed by home workers. Lot of them just wake up, get freshened up, grab their laptop and throw themselves on the bed again.
But this is not a good practice and must be avoided. Your mind in such position never makes you attentive towards work and you sleepy after some time. Instead, choose a private sitting position to work. This will make you mentally ready!

There are many who won’t follow this. But believe me, to keep yourself on track of workloads, this is one of the most effective tips.
Segregate your day in first half and second half. Divide your task for the day into 2 halves and then commence. Try it!
And, yes! Don’t forget to have short breaks.
