Be More Productive Working From Home

Updated: May 13, 2023

Working from home has become a new normal for many professionals in recent times. With the advent of remote working, the flexibility and convenience of working from home have a lot of appeal. But there are some challenges that come with it. One of the biggest challenges is staying focused while working from home.

Distractions are commonplace when you work from home. You can easily get drawn into social media or get distracted by household chores. In this blog post, we'll discuss some helpful strategies that can help you stay focused while working from home.

Time Blocking:

Time blocking is a technique that involves breaking down your work day into intervals or blocks of time. You can choose to block off an hour or two for a particular task, and then switch to another task. This technique helps you to build a sense of structure and discipline into your work day.

You can use time blocking to prioritize your tasks for the day. That way, you can start the day with the most urgent or important ones. This approach lets you complete most of the important tasks by the early afternoon, giving you some flexibility for the rest of the day.

Take Breaks and Stretch:

Working from home can encourage you to skip breaks or stay glued to your chair for extended periods, but it's essential to give your eyes and brain some rest by taking breaks. You can take a 10-15 minute break every 2 hours.

During your breaks, you can stretch your body. Stretching helps to increase blood flow in your muscles and reduce tension. Stand up, stretch your neck, arms, and legs for a few minutes, and walk around your workspace. You'll feel fresher and more alert afterward.

Extended periods of sitting and hunched body position can lead to a permanent posture issues, potentially causing the need for physical therapy and rehabilitation, as well as surgical correction. To avoid this common situation, professional massage can be extremely beneficial in maintaining balance and harmony within your muscles and in preventing and treating issues related to sitting or standing for extended periods of the day.

Stay Hydrated:

Drinking water is essential to staying focused and energized while working from home. When you're dehydrated, you become sluggish, tired, and mentally drained. You can invest in a reusable water bottle to reduce the need for repeated refills.

While setting your time blocks, include short breaks to go to the kitchen and fill up your water bottle. Make sure you drink enough water throughout the day to avoid becoming dehydrated.

If plain tasting water isn't your thing, don't let that keep you from getting your sips in! Head over to this post to see how you can make the taste of water more interesting. You may just turn out to be a water lover after all!

Listen to Music:

Music can help to improve your productivity when you're working from home. It is a mood lifter and a good way to block out distractions from your environment. Choose music that's not too loud or distracting, like instrumental or ambient music.

Music without lyrics can help you to focus without distracting your attention away from your tasks. You can listen to music without distractions by using noise-canceling headphones. If you're not into music, you can try listening to other forms of background noise like nature sounds or white noise.

If you are a Cali Girl PMU client, you can be assured carefully selected music will be surrounding you during your treatment that will enhance your experience, regardless of what service you are receiving. If you prefer the sound of silence, just ask. We will gladly accommodate your request.


Working from home has its benefits and challenges. It can take some discipline to stay focused and productive, but it's worth it. Time blocking, taking breaks, staying hydrated, and listening to music are some of the strategies you can try. If you continue to experiment, you'll eventually find the techniques that work well for you. By using these strategies, you'll be able to stay focused and productive while working from home.
