Working mothers have a lot on their plates. Between taking care of family and running a household, finding the time to focus on work can be challenging. Flexible hours, more time to spend with the family, no commuting – and a wide variety of duties are seeking mothers entering the query work from home phone operator into search engines like Google. 

But balancing work and home life can be difficult, and the lines are often blurred between the two. Even so, it is still possible to be successful in both. With a little bit of organization and planning, there are some things you can do to maximize productivity and make the most of your time. That’s why we teamed up with experts from job aggregator Jooble to explore 10 of the best ways to help you get the most out of your workday and achieve maximum productivity. 

  1. Get organized 

The first step to being productive is getting organized. Try to have a designated workspace set up in your home. This will help you focus on work when you need to and avoid getting sidetracked by other things in your house. 

  1. Set regular hours

Working from home can be tempting to work all the time or at odd hours. Set regular hours for working and stick to them. Draw up a schedule to map out your time to make the most of the available hours. Stick to the plan to maintain a healthy work/life balance.

  1. Set priorities

When you’re a work-from-home mom, setting priorities and focusing on the most critical tasks is essential. It will help you stay on track and avoid getting bogged down by more minor tasks. 

  1. Take regular breaks

It may seem counterproductive, but taking breaks can help you be more productive. Stepping away from your work for a few minutes will help you refocus and come back with fresh energy. Get up and move around, stretch, or make a cup of coffee and take a few minutes to relax. 

  1. Avoid distractions

Distractions can be a major productivity killer. There are many potential distractions when you’re working from home, so finding ways to avoid them is essential. This may mean turning off the TV, putting your phone on silent, closing your door, or working in a quiet space.

  1. Make use of technology

There are several ways that technology can help you be more productive. These resources can help you get more done in less time, from task management apps to online tools. 

  1. Get help when you need it

Don’t try to do everything yourself! If you need help with childcare, housework, or anything else, ask for it. Delegate and outsource minor tasks where possible. This will free up your time to do the important stuff.

  1. Take care of yourself

When working from home, it’s easy to let your personal care fall by the wayside. A productive mom is a happy – and healthy – mom. Take care of yourself both physically and mentally. Eat healthy meals, exercise, and get enough sleep. This will help you be your most productive.

  1. Guilt and blurring the lines between family and work.

Learn to separate your family life from your work life. When working, focus only on the work, and when it’s family time, give your full attention to your family without letting nagging work issues distract you. Easier said than done, perhaps, but you will never be truly productive if you continually blur those two lines. 

  1. Take time for yourself, be kind to yourself
