Working from home is a benefit coveted by many employees; there are no traffic snarls, no weather delays, and no drama over the perfect thermostat setting. Working outside of a traditional office setting does, however, create challenges for maintaining a consistent level of productivity. Here are my eight tips for making it work:

Are mornings for writing while you're in the office? Use the same schedule at home. While you probably will get tasks done faster at home than at work, this structure will help keep you focused and productive.

As much as possible, avoid answering personal phone calls or doing your laundry during the workday. Ask yourself if you would do this activity if you worked in an office.

Set a schedule. Just as you would in the office. Allot time for breaks and lunch. This promotes productivity.

Your entire home is engineered to provide maximum comfort and relaxation, which is great for downtime but not so good for work time. Your body associates pajamas and daytime TV with lazy weekend mornings. If you want to be productive, you'll need to flip the switch into work mode.

Many people working from from home, whether they are self-employed, working remotely, or out on leave, experience difficulties that those in an office setting don’t. But there are still a number of ways you can be just as productive at home as you are in the office.

Working from home is AWESOME. One of the things I like most about my affiliate marketing business is the ability to set my own hours and work from home. Actually, I can work from anywhere with an internet connection, but the vast majority of the time I’m working from home. Even though I love working from home, there have been some challenges I’ve been facing recently. I noticed my productivity was going down and it was enough to cause alarm. As someone who spends a lot of time on self-improvement, I knew I had to make some changes.
