The COVID-19 crisis has forced millions of people to adapt to remote work and this often means that they will be working at home with the distractions that come with that environment.
The following tips are going to help you make the most out of your working hours at home.
1-Turn off your phone
Some people never turn their phones off with the excuse that someone close to them could call with an emergency situation. You can always find a way to create an open line of communication with a loved one who may need your assistance, but you need to get rid of the distractions of using a phone.
2-Tell your family to help you by giving you space to work
The best way for your family to help you become more productive with remote work is to tell them that they should not know on your door or talk to you during your work hours unless they have a true emergency.
3-Pick a quiet place to work
Most people who do remote work will usually have a laptop for this purpose, so if you find that everyone at home is too loud, you can always move to the yard, the patio, or any area of the house that seems to be the most fitting for this purpose.
