Stay Productive In Your Home Office

Working from home definitely has it’s perks. You can roll right out of bed into the office, the fridge is close by, every day is “bring your dog to work day”, and you can easily answer all those emails you’ve been avoiding while on a conference call. While that’s all great, distractions happen, especially at home–the TV is near by, the couch is comfortable, and you have the option of staying in sweats all day. Learn how to reap the benefits of working remotely and stay productive.

Declutter your desk 

Keeping your desk nice and neat lets you concentrate on the task at hand. Anything you don’t use on a daily basis, put away in an (organized) drawer. Anything that sits on your desk but you don’t actually use, toss it. Only keep the essentials out–writing utensils, notepad, calendar, post its (if you’re feeling dangerous!) It’s unrealistic to think your desk will never get messy, so to keep your work space from becoming a dumping ground day after day, dedicate a few minutes at the end of each work day to re-organize and declutter what’s piled up.

Decorate

While the experts recommend you keep your desk clutter minimal, that doesn’t mean your office space needs to be sparse as well! Hang your favorite photos, get a funky lamp, or display posters with your favorite quotes for daily motivation. You spend a lot of time in your office–your space should reflect the personality and vibe you want to cultivate in your work.

Take breaks with a purpose

It’s tempting to click over to Facebook or scroll through Instagram when we need to hit pause. Next time, try an activity that gives you a break from work but is still beneficial, like a walk around the block or brushing up on industry news. Make sure your break is long enough to feel refreshed, but not so long that you get distracted from getting back to work.

Dress The Part

Just because you’re working from home and not seeing coworkers on a daily basis, doesn’t mean you should hang in your pajamas all day long. Keep your comfy clothes for vegging on the couch, and wear your work threads when it’s time to get down to business. Defining the line between work and play, even at home, will help you stay productive throughout the day.

Pick Appropriate Furniture

Don’t throw any ol’ desk and chair in your home office. Like clothes, your office furniture will help you focus and be ready to work. Pick something that’s functional and something you won’t mind looking at every day. Be sure to also pick a chair that is comfortable. Ask Fashion how you can add a home office to your furniture rental order.
