Other ways to stay focused while working remotely

  1. Schedule your working hours around the times you generally feel most productive and alert.
  2. Structure your day by time-blocking your tasks.
  3. Take regular, scheduled breaks.
  4. Limit social media use. Set time limits on apps or keep your phone off your desk if needed.
  5. Set boundaries with family members (and with yourself) so you don’t get distracted.
