Three Productivity Hacks for Working From Home

Three Productivity Hacks for Working From Home

Working at home for a prolonged period of time can be a challenge, especially if you’re new to it. Luckily, with these three essential productivity hacks, you'll find you're getting more work done in less time, which will allow you to enjoy some relaxing downtime in your apartment in Redmond, WA.

Use the Pomodoro Time Management Technique

This insanely popular productivity hack was invented in the late 1980s by an Italian man named Francesco Cirillo with a penchant for maximizing workflow and concentration. According to Develop Good Habits, “Cirillo came up with the name (which is an Italian word for "tomato") because he utilized a tomato-shaped egg timer when managing his time.” The basic idea is to chunk your time into 25-minute segments, during which you complete one task. This strategy works by helping you to focus on just one item on your to-do list, instead of trying to multi-task or start everything all at once.

Take Scheduled Breaks

Another way to increase productivity is to intentionally schedule breaks throughout your workday. Not only should you schedule downtime, but you should also plan what you're going to do during that time. For example, perhaps you plan to take a break from 10:00-10:20 am. Instead of unstructured time, find a fun or engaging activity that will refresh your mind and reduce your stress levels.

Reflect on Your Wins

During one of your scheduled breaks, take some time to reflect on achievements you're really proud of or wins that you've recently accomplished in your career. According to Forbes, “The effect of firing up the synapses where you store memories of accomplishment, ingenuity, fulfillment, and success will help you stimulate creativity, and more importantly, turn pain into gain.” Instead of getting discouraged by the number of things you still have to do, think about all that you have accomplished in the past. This will increase your motivation and productivity in the moment.
