Working Conversations Episode 4:
10 Work From Home Hacks for Staying Focused
Say it with me…
Be honest… have you been saying this repetitively to yourself because you’re guilty of being distracted?
If you would have asked me how I stay focused as a working mom in a work from home setup during this time of the pandemic, I probably would have laughed -- because I struggle too!
Many of you would agree with me that working from home can be a minefield of distractions. Whether it is children who are distance learning, your significant other, your pets or the chaos of the world around you (or all four like I have!), it can be challenging to stay focused on work.
And having to contend with all of those distractions and more, I have developed techniques that helped me be more focused and productive during my work week that I want to share with you.
In this episode, I bring you 10 different techniques to hack your brain and drive focus, so you can get stuff done. And, as a bonus, all these techniques work in an office environment too.
Listen here or wherever you listen to podcasts. I look forward to hearing what you do with these 10 techniques.
