I have to say that when I first started working from home it was a huge struggle. Believe you me, the about of distractions at home will entice you to get absolutely no work done. With that said and after a really really long time of allowing the distractions of home to actually distract me I decided to adhere to some rules.. (some of these rules with the help of a really good Oprah episode).. One distraction that actually helped.
2. SET UP A DESIGNATED WORK SPACE. I actually have a room in my place that is an office.. but of you don't have that no worries. Set up a desk in your living room or even section off a part of your dining table and designate it as your office space. DON'T PUT AN OFFICE IN YOUR BEDROOM.. the comfy bed is way to tempting.
3. HAVE A TASK LIST EVERYDAY. Create a list of tasks that you want to complete everyday. This is for when you do get distracted, which will happen no matter what.. you always have a list to get back to. Head in the clouds.. look at list.. it will snap you right back into place.
4. LEAVE YOUR HOME AT LEAST ONCE A DAY. I find this to be super important for a recharge. Pick a time to actually leave the house and interact with the world. Lunch is ideal.. but and afternoon coffee or smoothie run works just as well.
