Staying organized while working from home

As people remain working from home, staying motivated and organized can seem more and more challenging. However, Two Maids & A Mop has compiled a few tips to help you stay on-task by keeping your home office organized: 

Designate a space for work 

You don’t need a professional home office to complete your work, but you should have a dedicated “office space” while working from home. Set up an area to have your computer and any materials you may need, and don’t take these items around the house with you. That way, even when you “go to work” each day, any stressful projects or work-related anxieties can remain in one spot. However, don’t set up an office space in your bed – that area should remain peaceful. 

Dealing with shared spaces 

If your important presentation is sitting on the same table as your child’s science report, it can be easily misplaced or damaged. It’s great to have your own designated work space, but it’s not uncommon to have to share the area with the rest of your family. If this is the case, consider having different color folders for each person to organize their work. This can help keep everyone’s materials unharmed and where they need to be, in order to increase productivity. Additionally, you can create a schedule so that everyone has their own time to use the space – just make sure everyone cleans up after themselves before the next person starts to work. 

Limit distractions 

Your workspace shouldn’t be in front of the TV (unless that’s how you prefer to work). Setting up an office in an area that is quiet and free from distractions can certainly keep you motivated. Of course, this isn’t always possible, but you should try to limit any loud music, smartphone notifications and noisy family members during your work time. You also have the option to invest in a pair of noise-cancelling headphones!
