Use Commuting Time to Improve WFH Productivity

One of the greatest benefits of WFH productivity is lessened or no daily commuting time. You do not have to think about what to wear or eat or which road has less traffic. Most professionals can work from home, and both organizations and employees can save time, health, and money. Now that those are taken care of, it is time to improve your remote working capabilities. In this article at PM Student, Kevin Eikenberry shares tips to improve WFH productivity utilizing commuting time.

Commuting Time and WFH Productivity

Since the average commuting time in the U.S. is 26 minutes, a person travels an hour per day. Since you are not traveling to work anymore, you should do something that would increase your efficiency at work. Here are the tips to improve WFH productivity by creating a new routine for yourself:

Tips to Use

  • Analyze what you have done with the commuting time after you have started remote working. This activity would help you understand if you can have spare time to increase your productivity.
  • If you have no idea how the time passed by, start noticing. If you have been slacking, it is time to pull up your socks. You might not get this free time once you start going to the office.
  • Create a plan to utilize the commuting time, and add it to your daily to-do list. Sticking to a routine can become a habit, and soon you regularly will do it without being reminded.
  • The new routine must be constructive, something that would enable your WFH productivity. Once you notice its positive effect, you will feel encouraged to continue it further.
  • Share your new plan with the rest of the household so that they can support you.
  • Start your new routine soon.

With no additional help and kids at home, some of you will have more household chores to look after. But, what would you do if you started commuting again? Think as if you are still commuting and block those hours for your new habit.
