  2. Plan your work before you start your day –  Have a task list that will help you track your progress and consistently follow it. Have a priority list that will also include extra time for unforeseen tasks.  Try as much as possible not to switch tasks without completing the first one.
  3. Choose a specific working area in your house where you will be able to work on your tasks uninterrupted. This is key to ensuring you stay focused and productive. Also, try as much as possible to maintain the same working hours you have at the office.
  4. Invest in an internet Connection – you will be required to do research on various assigned tasks and you will also receive and send emails. Therefore, you will need a reliable source of internet for you to carry out various tasks online.
  5. Discourage personal interruptions at home – In your normal working environment in the office, you do not allow your friends and colleagues to frequently interrupt you. To prevent intrusions into your workspace, inform your friends that although the location of your job has changed, it is no different from what you normally do and you still require privacy and focus.
  6. Train your children to be productive and disciplined – Children tend to think they are on a normal school holiday. Consider having a timetable for them with various tasks to be achieved on a specific day. You can consider rewarding a child who has been consistently productive and disciplined.
  7. Exercise –  consider having exercise routines because you are staying indoors. You can watch channels that air various work out shows and implement them early in the morning or late in the evening.
