attention to other important things in your life, giving you time to stick to your healthy diet plans, providing
you ample opportunity to spend more time with your kids, giving you the power to choose how much you
earn, allowing you to do your healthy daily workouts to stay fit amongst several other such priceless
However, working from home can come with a number of challenges and distractions if you are
1. You need an office at home
Make no mistake about this. If you want to succeed working from home, you must make sure you create
yourself a comfortable office at home or at least some kind of work area. It doesn’t have to be as
garage, etc. It doesn’t really matter what part of your home your office space is located, the important
chair, a computer, printer, filing shelves, pen holders, and whatever else you think you need depending
2. Always act like you are heading to the office

you will end up not achieving anything. Before you shut down your work computer each day, take

Trying to stay at home all through the day is one way to drive yourself crazy much sooner than later. Find
time to take a few minutes’ walks around the house to help you clear your head. This is most vital if your
work involves mental calculations and brainstorming. For instance, if you do coding, writing, translation,
web design, etc, you would need to clear your head to get your bearings once in a while before you continue
with whatever project you are working on. Staying indoors all day is one way you can get your head feeling
fuzzy, get yourself weighed down with exhaustion, and end up too disoriented to complete daily tasks.
7. Interact with others on the project
The fact that you work at home does not mean you can’t reach out to someone or some people to talk about
the project you are working on. You can assign yourself a supervisor if you do not have one, get a colleague
who knows about your work to give you ideas and tips as your work to help you maintain a healthy mind as
you work. There are several communication channels you can employ as you work to help you stay
connected and updated. You can utilize social media platforms, exchange emails, send instant messages on
Skype, put a telephone call through to make sure you are not cut off from the rest of the world.
It takes a whole lot of discipline to work from home and stay focused and productive. The initial stage
comes with lots of challenges, but with the right mindset, adequate preparation and good time management,
you can become more productive working from home without neglecting other important aspects of your life.
