It is important to have the right working space at your house when you have decided for WFH. Make sure you have clean and tidy space as it increases the ability to make you focus throughout the day. When we have clean de-cluttered desk space, it throws a positive impact on productivity.

According to Founder and CEO of, Peter Vanderdriesse, “It is easy to sit with a laptop on a bed or couch but our posture won’t be in its current position. You will also be sitting close to a TV, so the distraction is obvious.”

My friend, the primary thing you can do is to set a working space.

2. Set Deadlines And Stick To Them

Deadlines are great; they help control and stop procrastination and give a boost to complete the work in an effective manner. If you are struggling hard to complete your work, set a deadline as it will drag your focus and make sure you complete your project on time.

In order to stay focused on your work, make sure you are managing them with set deadlines or boundaries. Or you can focus one work at a time that will keep you motivated, focused and will avoid distractions.

3. Take Things To The Priority

Once you arrange and tidy your desk while seting the deadlines, it’s time to prioritize the list of activities. Try to make this list in the morning as you have much energy and time. In this moment, you have enough time to accomplish tasks with complete focus.

In addition to this, you can train your brain to think more focused along with attention. This ability will drag your attention to the list and help you to accomplish the prioritized list.

4. Set Working Hours

We can clearly see when our colleagues are signing on and off at office time But when we are at home, we have the freedom to create our own schedule. Try to use this freedom at its best so that you can stay more focused and productive.

Start with creating a to-do list and mention the working hours, so that you can align the work in a given time frame. Try to set timings for every task to meet deadlines and trust me this method will keep you focused.

5. Keep Distractions Away

Distraction is very normal when you are working from home. So when you have decided to WFH make sure all the distractions are away from you. No matter, it’s a Facebook notification!

Keep all the distractions away from you including TV, remote and or web series. Your work time is the work time, understand this. Make yourself dedicated to your work and concentrate in a complete manner.
