Working from home isn't easy for everyone. Especially if you have small kids, it is difficult to make them understand your condition. In such a situation, establish a schedule for the worn and time you can spend with your family. When you'll be doing office work, lock yourself inside the room. Keep everything handy for example- water bottles, food for munching so that you won't need to move. Sometimes new notifications from mobile can distract you, keep it in silent mode.
Improve your willpower. It helps us to create lasting positive changes in our lives. It is the inner strength that helps us move toward our goals despite challenges that inevitably happen on the way.


2. Try to adopt the habit of taking mini-breaks between intense work.

Planned relaxation is always effective and helps you to stay mindful and maintains positive energy throughout the day.

3. Give yourself a deadline.

Deadline is a powerful time-management technique that can help you to become much more productive. Deadlines help to reduce procrastination. They make your goals feel more concrete, by attaching them to a specific timeline. Create a Task list to prioritize your work and write down the time limit to complete it. If you do this, you are more likely to complete your task. Writing down your progress allows you to realistically evaluate your work and avoid inaccuracy. This will ensure that you won't miss out on any task for that day.

4. Stop Multitasking 

While it may feel like you're accomplishing more, studies show that Multi-taskers are much less productive. When you try to do multi-tasking, your attention gets diverted. This doesn't let you concentrate any of the particular task. Instead, you waste your time and are not able to finish either of them within the time frame and thereby not getting expected results. It's better to pick up one task at a time and complete it.
