How to Stay Productive While Working from Home

Many of us had a pre-COVID work schedule that consisted of waking up, getting ready, commuting, working, and then going home at the end of the day. We repeated this 5 times a week and built a consistent routine around it.

So, what happens when suddenly we are asked to work from home? — Our routine gets thrown out the window. Humans are creatures of habit, and if we must rely on self-discipline to create a new routine we aren’t used to, it can leave us feeling distracted, lazy, unproductive, unmotivated, and more.

I have been working from home a couple of days a week for the past three years, so luckily this “new normal” isn’t so new to me; however working from home every day of the week? THAT threw me for a loop, and it took me a few weeks to get myself back on track.

Some of the biggest challenges people face when working from home include:

  • Lacking a proper morning or daily routine
  • No dedicated office or workspace
  • Missing social connections
  • Not knowing when to “shut down”

Of course, working from home also has its benefits, its just a matter of building a routine that will allow you to thrive in a home office environment. Let’s help you get there!

So, if you are someone who is needing a little extra motivation and wants to achieve something greater, I suggest you get to work and get creative.

Its worth noting that a vision board can be done in many forms. Some people will literally grab a foam core board, others may use cork walls, wall painting, digital versions, etc. Regardless of how you decide to make your vision board, the important thing is that its prominent and visible EVERY SINGLE DAY.

If you make a board and leave it inside a drawer or make an electronic one and save it on your computer folders never to be seen again, it defeats the purpose of doing one in the first place!

Let’s go over how you can make a truly powerful vision board:
