Taking A Break Can Increase Work From Home Productivity

Get Rid Of Your Online Business Stress When You Work From Home

Working from home with your own home based business on the internet can reduce a lot of the common work place stressor that used to plague the workforce. You make your own schedule choosing to work when and where you want and can gain more free time to spend with your family or pursuing your dreams. Another big advantage to having your own online business and working for yourself is that your not working to make money for someone else – you’re working to put money in your pocket. It’s easier than you think to start your successful home based business if you put the right plan in place.

Let me share some tips with you so that you can get maximum results from your work from home business.

Tip Number One: Take A Break From Friends and Family By Establishing Boundaries When You Work From Home

Establish boundaries when you work from home with your online business to increase productivityThere’s a preconceived notion that if you’re working from home you’re still available for non-work related activities.  This is where you need to set boundaries. You need to explain, very clearly, that you will be working in your home office at a specific time every day. When you are working, you should be able to do so uninterrupted.  If you were working at a traditional office, friends and family members wouldn’t come visit you and ask you to babysit a sick child, help mend the fence or simply chat over a cup of coffee. The same rules need to apply to your home based business.

Tip Number Two: Establish A Schedule To Increase Your Productivity

You probably enjoy working from home because of the flexibility, but this can be a double edged sword.

Yes, life’s daily challenges do arise. Doctor appointments, cars that need repair, sick children and the list can go on. However, it’s in your best interest when you’re trying to start or grown your own home based business to keep strict “office hours”. This sets precedence for not only you but will help you avoid the interruptions we discussed in tip number one.

Tip Number Three: Remember To Exercise Regularly To Reduce Stress When You Work From HomeIncrease your online based business productivity by taking exercise breaks

Many people who work from home lead a sedentary lifestyle. They spend so many hours sitting in front of the computer when they work from home trying to get their online business started. They often forget to take breaks and include exercise in their daily or weekly schedule. This can results in fatigue, “brain fog” and back and neck pain from not taking regularly scheduled breaks from the computer screen.  You need to keep both your mind and body sharp!

Tip Number Four: Take A 15 minutes Break Every One Hour

It’s been documented that without regularly scheduled breaks productivity is going to decrease. That is why it is a great idea to take a 15 minutes break every one hour or two. Do some stretches or “chair yoga” to get the blood pumping.

If you work at home, you should follow these 4 tips to improve your productivity.
