1. While you can write down your tasks for the day on a post it, why not on a big piece of glass that’s handsomely framed? This is a chic and more visually appealing alternative to a drab white board. On this erasable glass board, you can plot your monthly schedules to help you see the bigger goals for the month.2. As mentioned, one of the difficulties of working at home is having so many distractions within your reach. It is imperative for those who are home-based to have your own work station. It doesn’t have to be big, just a designated desk space that’s your own and that can fit your books, papers, laptop, etc. When your kids see you there, they know that mommy or daddy should not be disturbed.3. If you can’t have your own room in the house that you can convert into an office, you can still create a private space for yourself by using a divider. You can use a three panel folding screen or even make a makeshift divider using fabric.4. Time is of the essence. Stick to a working schedule. Keep a clock within eyesight and use a kitchen timer to help remind you to take a break every hour or so. To boost productivity, studies show that moving away from the desk and taking a 10 minute break after an hour’s work is the way to go.
