As a writer, I am more than familiar with the challenges associated with finding out how to stay focused when working from home.

First, there is a little problem called ‘Netflix.’ This seemingly innocent piece of tech that streams from my Xbox stole hours of my working life when I discovered Breaking Bad.

It was quite tragic.

Then there are the two small people I like to refer to as ‘my children.’ While they are tiny, they do demand a lot of food, water, and general attention.2

In all seriousness, finding out how to stay focused when working from home has been challenging, but not impossible.

1. Switch off Social Media

One minute you are checking what’s going on via your Facebook home feed, the next you have begun scrolling through the life story of your best friend’s aunt’s neighbor.

Trust me, I’ve been there—all too often.

There was once many an hour when I tried to use social media to find out how to stay focused when working from home.

Eventually I realised that this just led to me avidly reading Twitter feeds and Facebook pages.

In the future, check your accounts in the morning, then don’t return until you have shifted some serious work.
