Many remote workers find that one of their biggest challenges is staying focused. Working from home is not a controlled environment like an office. For example, you may have pets, small children (or both!), a spouse or roommate, or a noisy neighbor. Then there’s the fact that home is more comfortable – yes, that can be a distraction, too!
Let’s say you’re thinking about doing a home renovation. We know immediately that the distractions during this type of project will be off the charts! How will you handle that?
What Are Some Top Tips For Avoiding Distractions When Working From Home?
The first thing you need to remember is that a distraction is something you can manage, no matter how big or small it is. Some simple ways you can minimize those distractions are:
- Wearing earplugs or earbuds. Whether you decide to shut out all noise – like banging hammers and crackling radios – or listen to your own personal soundtrack, this is probably one of the best ways to keep distractions from driving you, well, distracted.
- Take time out. Get up, move around, check out what the crew is doing, enjoy the progress, and answer questions. It will refresh you and clear your mind; once you’ve disconnected for a while, you can return to the task.
- Close the door. Don’t be afraid to retreat to a quieter room. It’s often said that you shouldn’t work in your bedroom, but when the house is full of construction people, that might be your best bet. Set up a comfortable spot and do what you do!
