Working from home does have its advantages, but when it comes to distractions it can be overwhelming. Here are a few quick tips to help you keep focused and finish faster. Plus the top 4 apps to save some money at the end!

 

Social media

Set up specific times of the day to use social media and restrict your usage during work.

 

Friends

Lay ground rules to family and friends. Outline times of the day they can, or cannot stop by or call.

 

Make a Dedicated workspace

Create a dedicated workspace for yourself that is closed off and free from noise or traffic.

 

Know your limits

Taking breaks can actually make you work more efficiently and increase your concentration. Grab a snack or go outdoors for a few minutes. This can clear your head, and help with stress.

 

Resolve problems before work

Try to solve any personal issues or concerns before working. Failing to do so, might cause you focus on resolving the issue instead of your work.
