It's a dream of many girls.

Getting to work from the comfort of your own couch, while wearing your favorite sweatpants.

If you do reach this goal, it's important to figure out how to be productive working from home. Otherwise, you'll lose that job you worked so hard to get.

Working from home is increasingly appealing, and made feasible thanks to technology.

However, when away from the office environment, it's easy to get distracted - so here's how to be productive working from home.

1. Switch off Your Phone

One of the best answers to how to be productive working from home is to turn of your cell.

During "working hours" switch off your phone or only answer work-related calls.

You don't have to answer it just because it rings!

Also ignore Whatsapp or Snapchat messages and social media notifications.

2. Set Yourself Working Hours

Create a timetable and stick to it.

Build in breaks, and don't do anything that's not work related during your work time.

3. Set Your Working Hours for when You Are Most Productive

If you work best in the morning or late evening, schedule your work hours for that time.

Donโ€™t get to work at 7am if you really struggle to get out of bed.

Work with your body clock.

4. Have an "office"

It's not always possible to have a separate room for your home office.

If you can't, try to screen off a work area.2

5. Get Dressed

It is so easy to sit around and work in your pyjamas but you will be in a better frame of mind for work if you get dressed as if you had to go to the office.

6. Tell People You're Working

One thing that makes it hard to be productive when working from home is that other people don't see it as working.

Make it clear that you're not free for coffee, a chat, dealing with workmen or any other timewasters - you are WORKING.2
