While Idaho hasn't seen coronavirus numbers like Washington, Oregon and California (yet), a lot of people are gearing up for the possibility of working from home if offices close down like they have been in other states to help prevent the spread of the virus.

I've never had a job where I could work from home, although I'd love to have a studio set up in my house where I could do the show from, but that's wishful thinking. People who do or have worked from home are giving their tips on how they stay focused.

I work from home most of the time anyway. My advice: •stay away from the TV •if your bed triggers nap mode, work in the living room. If not possible, fill room with LIGHT (natural, or desk lamp) •keep your phone on another desk and put on silent for the hours you plan to work

More tips (especially if you live with someone else): •wear headphones and listen to music to block out external noise •if music doesn't work for you, get earplugs! They're extremely useful •schedule work time! Set up times with your roommate for using the living room for work

Friends, there are going to be a lot of people newly working from home starting this week, and it will be a difficult transition for some. *IF AND ONLY IF you are experienced at working from home*, please reply with tips for working effectively & avoiding distractions!
These all seem pretty intuitive. Don't turn on the tv and don't work from bed. Seems easy to say but I can definitely see myself taking a nap anytime all the time. How do you stay focused while getting work done at home?
