Challenges Of Staying Productive At Home
I know you’re facing different challenges which you’re trying to overcome during your quarantine but you are not being able to.
Now, let’s see some of the common and most dominant challenges while it comes to Staying Productive at Home.
Now, this applies only to those who have children or siblings who are very young. Sometimes they come in between your work. Your LASER-BEAM Focus Get’s Disturbed. And, Research has proven that it takes at least 20 minutes to get into the same task if your focus is broken.
Don’t get me wrong here too…. I am not saying your parents are bad, I am just saying they are unconsciously disturbing your focus…. C’mon You Know What I Am Trying To SAY. So, yeah, Parents are also sometimes[actually many times] source of disturbance in between the work.
3. Lack of Work
I interviewed many people, and found, they actually want to be PRODUCTIVE but don’t have any work to be productive… Maybe the same case with you???

4. Day Sleep
Because most of the time, I work from home, I had faced this issue few years back, I used to see my bed and I used to get lethargic and I used to go to sleep at the day time. Maybe you also have this problem.
Ways of Staying Productive at Home
Now we saw some of the major challenges of staying productive at Home, shall we also see some measures of overcoming these challenges when it comes to staying productive at home?
1. Pursue Your Passion
Many people say, “I don’t have time, I will do it when I have time”. Just my example, I used to say, “I will play guitar when I have time”. But then I realized, the problem wasn’t the lack of time but the problem was that I didn’t want to play the guitar actually. So, to be laser-beam focus, you must do what you love to do…. If you don’t know what you love to do, then your first work would be to figure out what you love to do.
2. Use “On Air” Signal
You remember, in stage performances or reality shows or media houses how they use On Air signal outside the door if they are recording? You can use the same concept in your room. Some of my friends use white flag outside their room which let’s other people in the house know that he/she is working and they shouldn’t disturb….. But you should tell all the people not to disturb when you have white flag outside the door.
3. Seperate Your Bed Room and Working Room
2 years back, I used to have 1 big room and in that same room, I had my bed and working table… But as I said, I always used to feel so much lethargic. Why?? Because, I could see that bed every time I work… So, I suggest you to have separate bedroom and workplace inside your home.
4. Have Self-Care Routine
Now What Do I Mean By Self-Care Routine? When it comes to Staying Productive At Home, We firstly feel too motivated and do too much of the work. Then slowly it starts to get overwhelmed…. You start to feel burnt out…. I have felt big (I mean very big) burn outs in my life…. They lasted for more than 2-3 months… When you go through such times, it will be very hard time for you…. So, it’s better to have self-care system so you don’t feel too overwhelmed…. Here are some examples of Self-Care Activities:
- Playing Solitaire With Real Cards
- Going For A Walk
- Read A Book
- Solving Rubik’s Cube
- Doing Push-Ups
- Playing with Pet
- Playing Guitar
- Watching Comedy Videos
- And Many More
This is my list of self-care activities, you have to create your own based on your interests.
