4 Fast Ways to Maintain Productivity at “Work”

Fotolia 12690217 L 300x199  4 Fast Ways to Maintain Productivity at WorkChoosing to run (or work for) an internet-based business from the comforts of your home is an excellent way to earn some extra income. But you have to actually work to make money.  And whether you’ve already learned it the hard way or not, your home is filled tons of distractions that can prevent you from actually being productive—there’s the television, the phone, and your kids just to name a few.  To make sure that you are always the most productive that you can be however, follow these 4 simple (yet effective) tips below.

4) Don’t Stay in Your PJs.  Even though technically you could simply roll out of bed and start working (after all no one is going to see you) it’s best if you don’t loaf around in your pajamas all day while you work.  Shower, wash your face, brush your teeth, comb your hair and put on some decent clothes—you don’t need a pant suit by any means, but you’ll feel more equipped to tackle all of your assignments and feel more “professional” with decent clothes; this feeling alone is what may be needed for you to boost your productivity. Not to mention, being clean and well dressed can help you exuberant a stream of confidence and absorb a “go-getter” attitude when working on assignments.

3) Give Yourself Mini Breaks. While yes you want to feel accomplished and complete all of your tasks, don’t lock yourself up in your home office for 8 hours a day until you’ve “produced.” Taking mini breaks is perfectly fine and actually encouraged. Going out to get a breath of fresh air, eating a snack, or taking a small stroll is one of the simplest ways to recharge your brain and give you the energy you need to keep going. Experts even say something as minor as checking your social networking site(s) and surfing the Web from time-to-time can actually improve your work performance.

2) Have a Designated Work Space. By far one of the easiest ways to be productive is to create your own personal workspace or home office. For example, working on a lap top while sitting on your couch in front of the noisy TV is not the wisest of decisions. And trying to set up shop in your bedroom?  Think again.  Being anywhere near your comfy bed is the fastest way to travel to Dreamsville.  Instead, try to convert an empty bedroom into a workstation so you can work in peace with minimal distractions.  If you don’t have a bedroom to spare, then at least try to work in a well lit area where you’re forced to sit in an upright position, like at your kitchen table for example.  And remember: always keep your stationed cleaned.  You will lose a substantial amount of time having to find the proper document you need hidden underneath a pile of trash.

1) Assign Yourself “Off Days.” Last but not least, the easiest way to be productive throughout the week is to know when it’s time to take a step back, forget about work, and tend to other important aspects in your life, such as your family. Having your work at your grasp all the time makes it extremely tempting to work on the weekends or right before you go to bed for example; but doing this is a surefire way to burn yourself out—and try being productive once you’re sick of work. So don’t let it consume you.

My thanks goes out to Nadia for her guest post.  It could not have come at a better time for me as, lately my kidney problems have been acting up which has me running back ‘n’ forth to doctor appointments. Which in turn has me going to hospital for every test known to man (in my opinion), and of course which the insurance company is not picking up much of the bills. So again I thank Nadia and her patience in waiting for me.  jj

Good advice, I started working from home a while ago, at first I thought I had the easy life, but got very lazy with it. I found by treating it like a regular job and giving myself a schedule to work too, I became more efficient and earned more money.
To work for the company I use quote ref. W0149 for a fast tracked application.
Good luck

Thanks Gary for letting us all know how your experience at working from home is going for you. I think it’s important for people to see and hear about what the challenges are… and there are challenges but the outcome can be wonderful!!! Maybe start a blog and work at home. jj

This is a great article! I work outside my home and also work from home so when I am done with my outside job and start working from home, I keep my work clothes on to feel like I am still working in my office. Also JJ please get better soon!

Li'l Miss Mummy February 14th, 2012 (5:11 am)

I work at home, and I have to agree that wearing presentable clothes does make a difference. It’s like saying I’m ready for work or to tackle a job. I’ve tried being in my PJs before, and I found myself less than productive that day.

Brent February 24th, 2012 (9:55 pm)

yeah good point about the Pjs
I have to say that the best thing i have every done with working from home is I purchased a Stop Watch
I don’t time everything I do but i time my self with certain task and try to finish on time. I also time myself because if I ever hired someone to replace some of the tasks i do I know relatively how long it should take. one idea i have come up with that i have not tried yet is to time things you do during the day and record the time it takes and try and improve your time each time for each task. I have only just limited my time to finish something so maybe worth a try for you and your readers.

Hey JJ – Just popping in to say hi, and hope all is well. I haven’t seen you post since November, I hope everything is okay. Hope to hear from you soon ♥ ~ Krysti ~

Adam bray April 27th, 2012 (6:14 am)

Looks like JJ is not making money because she has abandoned her blog.

Want to thank all of you who have visited “momscashblog” during the past months. I’ve been dealing with medical problems for the last 4 months, and just haven’t had the time or energy to even go on the internet! What’s up with that? I have no idea what that is all about, back awhile ago I opened my computer at least every day if not more.

To Krysti (prior owner of momscashblog), Thanks for stopping by and for your concern about me. I’m going to send you an email. Again thanks jj

Hey Adam: Over the past few years, since I purchased this blog “momscashblog” from Krysti, you have done nothing but come on here and make mean, hateful comments about “mcb” and “jj”. I had often wondered if it was maybe due to the fact that you wanted to purchase this blog back when it went up FOR SALE? If you are still interested just drop me a few lines. BTW money is doing just fine thanks! Just wanted you to know that I have been out due to medical reasons and have not abandoned the blog. Thanks for the comment, as usual you have made my day. jj

JJ, Good to see your smiling face on Skype this morn, but sorry I forgot about the time difference. (good post and here I caught you in your PJs… or T-shirt. LOL) I am psyched about the deal and you should be too!

Wow, don’t let the “little ant” bug you. YKWTS… “he who has LITTLE body part has BIG problems with the world”. Gotta be desperate if this is how HE gets traffic to HIS blog. E’nuff Said! LOL

Dana May 10th, 2012 (9:15 pm)

LMAO, K……. read your comment and can’t stop laughing. I think you hit the nail right on the little head. That Adam kid’s comment makes him look so lame I’m not even going to link to my site. If you do it right you don’t need to post

JUST came to give JJ some good wishes. and returning the good karma J gives out to others. :)

Great article, i use to do work from home..i think this article help me to follow the tips.

Willson May 19th, 2012 (7:10 am)

Wow…i’m glad your site was the first that came up when using google. You saved me tons of time on my search for “real” at home jobs.

John May 22nd, 2012 (1:48 pm)

Thanks for the article. It’s good to know i’m not the only person in the world who had to actually make an office in my home in order to stay productive. It took a while before I learned that working from home can be more difficult than working in an actual office. Once my office was set up, I made myself get up every morning at the same time, shower, make my coffee, kiss the wife and kids goodbye for the day and off to work, just down the hall. But that is what it took for me. Thanks again for the great article and great tips.

Marms June 6th, 2012 (4:16 pm)

hello JJ, how’s it going? been a while since our last meet up here on blogging. I have a baby girl now. so been busy with motherhood :) thanks for sharing this great tip. i am working on getting my feet back on blogging and hopefully start an online business too.

have a wonderful day.

Polly November 10th, 2012 (5:40 am)

Those are great tips for those work at home moms who can balance to juggle their time in working while taking care of their babies. As much as I want to do those tips, it seems that I can’t do it now since I have 2 kids to take care of since we don’t have a helper to help me with those tasks. I just hope I could do these tips and earn more for my family.

great tips thanks for the post.

Cindy January 21st, 2013 (1:41 am)

Wow, you hit a nerve with me. I wish I knew this before I started working from home. I thought it would be easy. I quickly learnt you need discipline and to learn to manage your time. At first it was easy to drop everything and go have a coffee with friends or spend hours cleaning the house in my nighty. I got nothing done and after 2 months I realized I have to approach this from a professional point. I dedicated to dedicate a specific area in my home just for work. Anytime I’m in that area its work time. I found that worked wonders for me.
