Working from home: a beginner's guide

So you are working from home but you have no idea how to do it effectively...

We were you once, starting out in a home office (our kitchen table). To help us get the most from our days we built a time tracking app that keeps you focused while working from the relative comfort (but potential endless distraction) of your home.

Working from home is hard

It is hard to stay on task, it is hard to avoid distractions and being unsuccessful at working from home can leave you feeling flat and unworthy. Good news, it doesn't have to be like that.

Everyone starting out working at home finds it difficult to find their groove, whether it be struggling with distractions or switching off at the end of the day. If you can stay focused and measure your output you are one step closer to being productive.

A simple productivity app

We use a timer to keep you on task for 25 minutes, then we encourage you to take a 5-minute break to ensure you stay fresh throughout the day.

We alert you when your break time is up too, so you can get back to work.

After four sessions we suggest a long break, this is the perfect time to do things around the house without impacting your output e.g. put a load of washing on, do 20 minutes of yoga, vacuum the living area.

We record all the sessions you do, so you know exactly what work you have completed.
