re: How to Work Remotely Without Going Insane VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I sometimes work from home and the biggest struggle is to keep focused, not reaching for my phone and start getting distracted on Reddit/Facebook etc...

I don't think I'd be able to work remotely all the time but sometimes it's nice to just stay home

 

For me, working at office was more like that. I felt like I was actively slacking whenever possible just to get the required work hours at the office done for the day. And I felt absolutely unproductive because of that.

Now when I work from home, if I don't feel like working since early morning I take my time and relax. And that way when I start later it feels much less forced. Also at home you don't have to follow any office hours or transit. If I feel like working at 10pm at sunday because I just got the best idea about the task I'm solving, I just can.

 

It's largely due to the fact that you only sometimes work from home. Without doing it as part of a routine, you don't build in the habits that you have when going into the office is the routine. For you "home" equates to "personal time."

It takes a bit more mindfulness and discipline, but you can retrain yourself to not be so distracted even if you don't work from home very often.
