Many of us may find ourselves inside during this time, finding that we’re yearning some sort of daily routine each day of the week. If you’ve ever wondered how to remain productive whilst at home, you’ve come to the right place. Below you’ll find our easy tips which will help you stay productive at home.
It is no myth that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Wake up at a decent time, allowing yourself enough time to prepare a substantial breakfast which you know will keep you energised until midday. It is important to go for a real breakfast, something that’s not processed or sugary. Oats, fresh fruit and eggs are some great choices. We also highly recommend drinking a glass of lemon water with your breakfast, as it has been proven to boost productivity throughout the day.
With so much time on our hands, there really is no better time to get organised. Start by making a list of things that you need to do, whether that be household chores or whatever else needs your attention. Creating a step by step process is especially effective, and ticking different steps off once completed is a great reward. Work your way down the list, ensuring you don’t cut any corners! When following a list, always ensure that you allow enough time for breaks. Having regular breaks will help stagger your day, leading to greater productivity and good performance.
The key to organising effectively is to have a thorough sort-through, ridding your home of items that you no longer want or need. Allocate separate piles, one being ‘keep’ and another ‘throw’ or ‘donate’. Having piles means that you can easily determine how many belongings you are going to keep, so that you can make room for them. If you still don't have enough room, it may be worth investing in a self storage facility. At Easistore, we offer a wide range of storage units to suit your needs and budget.

If you have found yourself working from home, there are many ways that you can bolster your productivity at the home office. Be sure to eliminate any form of distraction, whether that be outside noise or distractions from family members. To do so, consider ordering yourself a good pair of noise cancelling headphones to help reduce noise.
Another way to boost productivity is to set up a dedicated office space. Follow our declutter tips (see above) to help you clear a space for your laptop or computer system. Having a separate work space is vital when it comes to home working, as it enables you to create a good work-life balance. Working in the same area that you relax in can blur the boundaries between work and chill-time, so be sure to create a clear separation.
