Working with Distractions From Home

distractions from work

Working from home is interesting. The distractions can be overwhelming, and while some people just are not cut out to work remotely because of the COVID pandemic, that option may have been taken away from you. But how can you maintain your best productivity?

If you’re used to working in an office full of that noisy buzz working from home may feel a little quiet — too quiet, and if we are honest…a little depressing! Music and Podcasts to stay focused when you work may be an answer. If you are working at home with a significant other in the same situation or children who are remote learning, you may need a pair of headphones to ensure your concentration stays on your work.

To get a little scientific, studies have concluded that people who listen to music while working on repetitive tasks can perform the task faster while making fewer mistakes. This is because listening to music triggers the release of certain neurotransmitters that make you feel relaxed and happy: dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. This may be the answer to keep your spirits up and your attention focused because the feel-good neurotransmitters improve your overall mood and give you more patience making for a better workday. This is also true when these tasks are challenging. If you are comfortable in motion, but the stakes are high, then music can help relieve additional pressures that might compromise the performance at hand. (Think, surgeons in surgery.)

One of the great things of controlling your at-home environment is that you have the power to put in place of what makes you happy in your space. So light that candle or diffuser, put on your favorite Pandora station in your headphones, and see your work life from home improve, maybe even thrive!

What Our Clients Say

Shannon G.

I am a court reporter who needs conference rooms to hold depositions on a regular basis. I used to use hotel conference rooms, which weren’t very professional, but were the only places available to rent by the hour, and were VERY costly. Another court reporter told me about Work Webb, and I have been happily using their services for almost two years. I have also told all national firms that I work with to use them. The rooms are clean, the staff is VERY helpful, there’s wifi, snacks/coffee/water, use of phones when my clients can’t make it in person, copy machine, and Susan and Heidi are there to make sure all of my needs are met…even lunch selections from great nearby restaurants. I look forward to having jobs there. The positive and upbeat spirit in that office is infectious. It also happens to be the most beautiful building in downtown Daytona Beach. Also, the rates literally cannot be beat!
