Hello and welcome to episode 224 of The Mindful Kind podcast.
Since I've been working from home for the majority of the last 2 years, I thought I'd share some effective productivity tips to help you stay on track (and still have plenty of time to relax!).
Tip 1: Start working at the same time each day after finishing your morning routine
Tip 2: Minimise distractions (like music and the tv)
Tip 3: When motivation disappears, take three deep breaths and persevere for 10 minutes. If this doesn't help, move on to Tip 4
Tip 4: Have a list of important things to do (other than work). When you get really stuck on work tasks, do something from the list and then return to your work
Tip 5: Complete at least three work tasks each day (even if they're just small tasks. I use Trello for time management and I learned some great strategies from Matt East's book, The Purposeful Planning Method
Tip 6: Take regular mindful breaks
Tip 7: Be self-compassionate, give yourself time to adjust, and reward yourself for your efforts
