Prepare a schedule
Preparing a schedule and adhering to it will help you increase your productivity. Not just this, it will also provide you with sufficient breaks in between so that you don’t get burdened.

Organize your desk
No doubt, the comfort of sitting or lying on the bed and working is unmatched, but it hampers your productivity. Make it a habit to sit in an organized manner on a chair and a table with your laptop in front of you.
More importantly, declutter your desk. Remove all unnecessary items from the table as it will only create a nuisance. For example, if you want to edit PDF, you do not need any files or stationery on your table.
Work in a quiet environment
There is no use in working in a surrounding with lots of noises and nuisance, as you will not be able to concentrate and it will only waste your time, and you will have to work again. Tell your family members to maintain peace at home. If you have children at home, tell them strictly not to come to you in between your working hours.
Take adequate breaks
You are a human being and have the brain of a human, not a machine; getting tired after long hours of work is obvious. So, you will require an adequate number of breaks in between to ensure productivity.
You can listen to songs, read a book, exercise, watch a TV, play a game, cook and eat something you like, or just simply sit with your family. It will help you rejuvenate, and you will be able to focus better after a break.
Pre-install all required software
Working from home is not an easy task. You need to know all the know-how of computers to work efficiently. There is a lot of software that makes it easier and more convenient to complete tasks, even as simple as those to convert PDF to Word. Install all the software you would need and learn how to use them properly. You will only learn with time and practice.
Working from home has become such a convenient method now that it will stay even after the pandemic ends. So, it is better to get used to it and learn how to make the most out of it.
