How To Create A Distraction-Free Office

Are you working from home these days? You’re not alone. In fact, more than 300 million people are using their software for video conferencing every day. Yes, it’s nice to be able to work from a home office. But it can also be easier to be distracted or overwhelmed when your work and personal life converge. At Cowboy Moving & Storage in Denver, we’ve seen a lot of home offices. Here are some tips for creating a distraction-free office space at home, so you can be effective and productive. Set Regular Working Hours. It’s easy to get distracted and try to do household chores during the workday, like laundry or loading the dishwasher. However, if you set working hours where you focus only on work, you’ll get more done. Be sure to instruct your family or housemates about your working hours and ask not to be disturbed—or to run errands or do household chores. Choose How You Work Best. Do you need a quiet workspace for deep thinking? Are you on the phone making sales calls all day? Do you need frequent breaks in order to decompress between calls? Are you a morning person or can you work when you feel the most productive? Make sure you set up your workspace and office hours to fit what works for you. Create Physical Separation. If you don’t have a dedicated office with a door, be sure to arrange your workspace to create a physical separation from others. This can be turning your desk a certain way, adding a white noise machine or using a collapsible screen to denote your workspace. If possible, designate a spare bedroom or even a large closet for your private office space. Move Items To Make Room For Your Office. If it’s hard to find a good workspace at home, you might need to move some items into storage to make room for your workspace. You might empty a large closet and use that for a small desk. You could declutter a room to open up space for a desk. You might trade in that queen sized guest bed for a day bed so there’s more room for a desk. Cowboy Moving & Storage offers monthly storage in a wide variety of sizes. You Might Want To Move To A Larger Home. If it looks like you’ll be working from home long-term, you might want to consider moving to a new place that provides you with space for a dedicated office.
