Productivity Killeres at home and how to overcome them! | Luma Wifi

I hate working from home. I don't know exactly why but I can never ever really focus from home. I can't even work on my blog! And I've always been like this. When I was in college, I used to go to campus to study every day. And thank god my university has a few rooms that are open 24h for the students to go study and work, otherwise I don't know how I would be able to finish it. I spent so many nights there! And even today, I go to the office on weekends that I need to work. Or to Starbucks. I work better at Starbucks than at home!

And since Back to School Season is just around the corner -- can you believe summer is almost over?! -- I've decided to try and round up everything that I've found to be a productivity killer from my home and I tried to come up with some solutions for them!

1- Messy Desk


My desk, at home, is always messy. I mean, I have bills, junk mail, cords, products, old notes, and even cloths, on top of my desk And just the thought of having to clean up, clear some space, put everything where it belongs... Just kills my -- not that big in the fist place --  willpower. I'm sure this happens to you a lot too.
This has a very simple solution --  I need to be more careful where I leave my stuff. It is important to put everything in its rightful place right away. My mom always tried to teach me this. I guess she was right after all.

2- Food


Okey, I have to admit that food is one of the biggest distractions that I have at home. It just makes me waste so much time. Cooking, and cleaning up. Then I'm hungry again, I go to the fridge, than the pantry. I can't find any snack. I decided to go to the store, I buy a bunch of junk food. And the whole afternoon has just passed by. 
This problem is something I've already dealt with, and this has been working super well for me. I've been buying food that I can cook that don't need to much supervision. I really like thinks that I can just stuck in my oven, like fish sticks or something like that. And I eat it with some salad. No mess at all, and just one dish to wash. As for the mid-afternoon snacks, I buy individually packed oatmeal cookies, and I buy just enough to last me one week. And I only eat one. Because If eat more than one, I won't have it for the next day. And I try to feel my self up with water and tea.



3- TV-Shows


Some people have a problems restraining their-selves from social media, I have a problem restraining my self from watching 10 seasons of a tv-show in a weekend. And I have no solution for this. I just can't allow myself to start watching any new TV-show if I have things to! 


4- Slow Wifi

This is the thing -- I mean THE THING -- that annoys me the most in life. If I'm working from home, and I need to submit a file or access something from our cloud, and if the internet is not cooperating... OMG this just annoys me so much and makes me want to break my computer in half! 
Solution: Luma Surround Wifi! This is the best wifi system I've every seen. It's the best! It helps you create your home network, showing you where you should place the routers to have an optimized network, so you can have super strong signal in all your rooms! The system is composed by 3 routers that you position throughout your house. You can control the system using an app on your phone, and the routers themselves are just super cute! It is a bit expensive, but I honestly think it's wort it. I would love to have this system on my home! You should definitely check it out! The routers really look like a piece of decor! Amazing and functional! 



Can you work/study from home or are you just like me? And if you can, what is your secret?

  7. My internet is decent. It's either fast or doesn't work at all. Very rarely ever "slow"

  8. Para estudar, sinto-me muito melhor em casa, definitivamente. Porque tenho tudo o que eu preciso lá e é certo que por vezes distraio-me com tudo o que eu vejo quando não tenho muita pachorra para estudar, mas ver séries e distrair-me a comer e assim, não sei porquê, mas não é algo que me afete. Sempre podes esconder o comando ou assim ahaha Adorei o post! Beijinhos.

  9. Trabalhar ou estudar em casa para mim é o que resulta melhor. Posso criar a minha rotina e horários. Prefiro mil vezes!

  10. Concordo tanto! Eu trabalho melhor quando tenho horários, por exemplo trabalho melhor no meu blog e redes sociais quando estou a trabalhar (no meu trabalho normal 8 horas por dia).

  11. Adorei mesmo este post, revi-me em alguns pontos e diverti-me com outros.
    Por exemplo, a minha mesa de trabalho em casa está sempre organizada mas a verdade é que nunca consigo concentrar-me no trabalho como quando estou no escriório. Aqui há sempre muitas coisas a distrair-me, primeiro o filho :D, depois a tv e a comida também, ou seja, estou sempre em movimento :D.
    Beijinhos e boa semana.

  12. I only work from home in emergency situations, like a storm or extreme weather which prevents me from arriving safe and on time in the office, but other than that I work from work. :) When I do work from home, I make myself a coffee and try not to let anything distract me.
    Have a great week ahead!
    Xoxo, Victoria

  13. Eu não me devia rir com isto, porque no fundo não tem graça nenhuma, mas revi-me taaanto nisto. Maior parte do meu trabalho é feito a partir de casa e o único problema desses que não tenho é o da net, que funciona bem. Mas isso também é uma desvantagem porque há sempre a tentação de espreitar 200 sites enquanto se trabalha.

    Beijinho.

  19. Love reading it, you make sense and the moving pictures are hilarious. I like the opportunity to work from home, I grab it when my employer agrees for me to do some work at home with pay of course. Everything you mentioned is true though I don't spend time looking for food, I also don't turn on the tv to avoid being hooked haha. The biggest concern for me is when I find the house messy and dirty and start cleaning up :)
    Love this post, very entertaining and engaging.

  20. The temptation to open social media for leisure more than for business too. And in my case...dogs! Clingy, needy, attention-hungry dogs.

  26. Acho que isso acontece a toda a gente, uma pessoa associa a casa a local de lazer e não de trabalho e depois adia tarefas, preguiça em vez de começar a trabalhar/estudar... Já outros locais, como o local de trabalho, estão associados a mais disciplina. Gostei das técnicas, devem ser uma grande ajuda :)
