The COVID-19 pandemic forced most of us to set up a home office.
Remote work is said to benefit knowledge workers like project managers, analysts, and developers because they can avoid the distractions of the office like chatty colleagues and impromptu meetings.
However, the line between work life and family life tends to get blurred quite easily when you are working from home.
You don’t have a supervisor looming over your workstation.
You don’t have to keep up appearances in front of your coworkers.
So you’re more likely to start slacking until your work stretches and invades your personal and family time.
Such an unstructured and unplanned approach to work leads to feelings of overwhelm, dissatisfaction, and burnout in the long term.
But don’t despair–there’s an easy-to-learn and popular productivity method you can try: the Pomodoro Technique.
