How to stay organized with remote work
It's an understatement to say that COVID-19 has brought the whole world to a standstill. In this mega experiment that we're in, it may seem that work is slipping away. However, don't be disheartened, there are tried-and-tested proven ways to be very effective at remote work.
Create a routine
It is essential to create a morning routine so you can trick your brain into believing that you are going to work. If you can wake up early, the effect will be amplified greatly. Here's an example of a routine: 1. Wake up at 7 AM
2. Take a shower
3. Make your regular black coffee
4. Wear pants
5. Eat a healthy breakfast
6. Get to work!
Get a workspace
Workspaces can be very essential to separate work from your personal space and ensure that distractions don't bother you throughout the day. You can create a makeshift workspace, but if you plan to work remotely for a long time, you should set up a workspace at home.
Make a to-do list
Having a to-do list (also known as task list) can help you stay on track during the day and ensure that work doesn't slip away.

And finally...be grateful!
Lastly, be thankful for the opportunity given to you. Not everyone gets the chance to work remotely where they can be flexible and skip daily rush-hour traffic. Remote work can also be an opportunity to enjoy the finer things in life by helping you save time on needless work rituals. You could also use the opportunity to focus on family and spend more time with your kids. Check out Neo to manage work better and be more productive
