Working from home for the first time can be a challenge, especially living though a global pandemic, when you will likely also be sharing the home with children.

Procrastination and being distracted are often the main causes of demolition when working from home. A lack of productivity could lead to you losing your job or clients if you’re a freelancer.  Feeling isolated is another cause for people to lose motivation to work, so make sure you switch off from work and spend time catching up with friends, exercising or, doing the things you love in life. 

In this episode of  the Remote Hive Podcast, learn how to keep motivated when working from home
