If you have had to work from home before, you will know that being productive doesn’t come easily. Though you may have some days where you remain focused and on task, working from home can be a struggle. Luckily, we have some top tips to help you work productively in serviced accommodation. 

How to Stay Productive When Working in Serviced Accommodation

  • Choose a Designated Place to Work - There are no shortage of distractions when you are working from home; you may want to continue binging something on Netflix, cook a delicious lunch or catch up with someone you live with. This is why choosing a designated place to work is key. It’s a lot easier to be productive in serviced accommodation when you remove yourself from distractions. Rather than working in bed, choose an area you associate with hard work.
  • Take Regular Breaks - When you are in a workplace, you will have scheduled breaks throughout the day. This could include heading out for a coffee with a coworker, taking a lunch break or catching up in the staff room. When you are working in serviced accommodation, these are often forgotten about. Taking regular breaks is key if you want to work productively. 
  • Plan Out Your Working Day - Planning your working day is hugely beneficial when you are working in serviced accommodation, as it helps you to remain focused and on track throughout the day. Have a rough idea of what you need to achieve and what tasks you have to do. There’s nothing better than seeing a completed ‘to do’ list at the end of the working day, it’s a great way to see how much you have achieved. 
  • Have Specific Working Hours - If you are fortunate to have a flexible working schedule, you may find working in serviced accommodation makes it difficult to stick to standard working hours. You may have a lazy morning and start late, you may take a long lunch and then end up working well into the evening. Have specific working hours to keep structure. It’s important to have designated working hours, as well as designated hours off.
