How To Work From Home With Family, Kids, And Pets Distracting You
With everything and everyone interrupting, here's how you can successfully work for home.
Working from home isn't for everybody. You have to be very disciplined. There are so many different things to distract you and take you off track. Now, you may be forced to do it. Unlike a normal day, where the children are at school and the significant other is at work, everyone is home with you. How are you supposed to get anything done while being surrounded by chaos? Luckily, there's help.
Tips for working at home without losing your mind from buzzfeed.com.
Make sure you have a good setup that keeps you comfortable.
Stick to a routine as best as you can.
Tackle your biggest work priorities first.
Get up early, either to get a jump start on your work or just so you can have a little alone time.
Try to keep your "work space" separate from your living space.
If you're home with a partner, do your work in separate spaces and then meet up when you both have a break.
If you have kids, set clear boundaries between parent "work time" vs. "family time."
Get some background noise going to mask any small, annoying sounds.
You can have the TV on, but just make sure it's not messing with your concentration.
Set parenting "shifts" during the day.
Hopefully, those little suggestions will help you get through the work day at home.
