#224: The Mindful Kind // 7 Productivity Tips for Working From Home
Listen now
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 If you would like more support and guidance, be sure to check out one-on-one coaching with me at rachaelkable.com/mindfulnesscoaching.  Thank you so much for listening and take care, Mindful Kind.
