Working from home : How to stay focused
If you are here there is chance there’s a chance you’re having some difficulty staying focused during the pandemic. Don't worry, here are some tips to increase your productivity at home :
Know thyself : you already know at which time slots you are the most productive. For example if you know you do your best work between 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM, schedule your most important tasks during that time.
Make a list : this way you're keeping track of all your to-do tasks you have to complete daily.
"Write your to-do list right before you end work for the day. This helps in two big ways: It provides closure to the current workday, allowing for an easy transition from your home office to life at home. And the next day, you can begin your day with a laser focus because you’ve already identified your tasks and goals for that day."

Create a Home Office : a place where the rest of the surrounding people knows they can't disturb you.
Structure your day : it's crucial to establish your work hours and make everything to complete your tasks in this given time.
Limit media consumption : of course limit the use of your phone and stay away from depressive COVID-19 news.
Create a calendar : use a whiteboard, a planner, or an online calendar, whatever but organise your long terms objective by prioritizing your daily tasks.
Take breaks : only scheduled breaks!
