Increasing productivity in Work From Home scenario

Though remote working has been in practice for a long time now, many companies are still new to this concept and are struggling hard to get this right. Although lockdown has left no other options for companies but to embrace the full-time work-from-home culture worldwide, many seem to brass off this idea, as the productivity curve has dived down deep.

You might feel at sea when you first start off but don’t you think even our hackneyed work-from-office traditions has its own shortcomings too? Commuting for hours to the workplace with congestion at its peak, cafeteria gossips, reaching home late, lesser work-life balance and when this vicious cycle continues for the entire week, productivity already appears to wane.

Now, let me brief you on the bright side of virtual working. No back-breaking long commute’s, instead you can spend more time sleeping or even get the other household chores done. After the normal hours of work, you can whale away your time on your long lost hobbies or even devote it to your family. Side projects or even long-desired freelancing is the crème de la crème.

Apart from being weary of the same saddening news of infections and death tolls over and over again, reports on planet earth’s healing itself have knocked our socks off. The drastic drop in carbon emissions, cleaner air due to lack of wheels on the road, cleaner waters, the fauna

venturing out from their hideaways and also our capability to adjust with lesser things in life has been an eyeopener for humanity. Many organisations have already decided on making remote-working a permanent policy.

How do you boost the productivity of your Work-from-home?

Let me tell you how…

?     Set up your own workstation:

You can simply DIY your designated workspace area which will help you boost your productivity to the crest. Opt for a layout which will offer more natural sunlight such as placing your table near a window if possible, and away from the comfort zones such as your bed. Get rid of all the dirty laundry and dishes away from that area and stop distractions bothering you for the rest of the day.

?     Stay prepared for the worst:

Working from home doesn’t mean you will just wake up and start working. This will only bring productivity to a head, instead, have a shower and dress up in your comfortable yet formal attire, like you do when heading to your office. Make this a consistent morning ritual without fail. This will help you feel fresh and energised throughout the day and will also save you from the nick of time rush in case of impromptu video meetings.

?     A person who chases two rabbits catches neither:

When working from home, you might tend to check your phone time and again, watch your favourite show on tv, stay engrossed with other household errands or even keep talking to your partners. These interruptions will break the consistency of your workflow and result in loss of productivity.

So, stay focused, isolate yourself from such disruptions. You are your own boss now, so plan your day accordingly. If needed, prepare a checklist of the tasks you will have to complete that very day. Set alarms if required and manage your time in a way that you end up with ticked boxes against each completed quest. This will not only bring you content but also bring out the best in you.

?     Come up for air:

Sitting incessantly for hours will either gift you a severe back pain or leave you completely drained. Therefore, it’s very necessary to take breaks amidst your busy schedule. After every 45- 50 minutes of work, take five by just strolling around your house, have a considerable amount of liquid, get your meals ready part by part or even fold your clothes lying around. Do anything else other than jumping on the couch and staying engrossed in the phone.

?     Health is the key:

No matter how busy you are, have your meals on time because a healthy body is an abode for a healthy mind and a healthy spirit. Yoga or home work-out is the need of the hour.
