Whether you’re working from home or the office, it’s easy to get distracted during the day. Here are three steps you can take to maximize productivity and avoid distractions:
1. Create a dedicated workspace: It’s important to reserve a space solely for work, even in smaller apartments or homes without an office. It helps to “leave work at work.”
2. Block distracting apps: If you find yourself checking your phone every 10-15 minutes, try muting notifications for apps you visit frequently.
3. Schedule breaks: Reserve intervals of time between projects to stretch, walk around or simply close your computer for a few minutes.
