5 Ways to Boost Productivity Working from Home

By Amelia P

Let’s call it like it is: working from home sounds WAY more glamorous than it really is. If you work from home often, you know how hard it can be to peel away from your everyday life and actually WORK.

We’ve all had days where we don’t get out of bed, have Netflix on 24/7 and avoid contact with the outside world for far longer than we’d like to admit. But, to be successful, you have actually to WORK from home. Let’s talk about how you can be more productive working where you live and living where you work. Ready?

Hack #1: Get Dressed

I know, I know. Part of the joy of being a sex worker is that you can do it naked, and here I am, telling you to get dressed. BUT there is something to be said about the power of presenting yourself (even if no other humans see you). There’s nothing wrong with an occasional PJ day. But, if you’re feeling sluggish, unmotivated and struggling to get administration work done or turning down bookings, I challenge you to take a shower, brush your hair, put some pants on and see what happens.

Hack #2: Create a Routine

Craft a routine around your work schedule. If you usually take bookings at night, maybe setting an alarm at 6am isn’t best for you. Nevertheless, it’s essential to create a routine just as you would do if you were working in an office. Routine turns into habit and habit is directly linked to what we are actually accomplishing.

Hack #3: Set Boundaries

One of the hardest things about being a sex worker and working from home is that work is always accessible to you – and so is the rest of your life. Having ‘office hours’ can help you define and separate work and life. I try to have a start and end time for administrative work and for when I will take bookings. This allows me to disconnect, but also means I am more productive during the day.

While it’s tempting to leave your phone on 24/7 because you don’t want to miss a booking request, being on-call significantly impacts wellbeing. It’s important to remember YOU are in control of your schedule, and you will make more money if you are a happy, healthy, focused person. Try to clearly define your schedule and treat your home as a workplace during your work hours and your oasis at other times.

Hack #4: Remove Barriers

Identify what STOPS you from doing work or taking bookings. Do you avoid taking bookings because your workroom is a mess? Maybe you need to implement a routine so that your workroom is always clean and tidy, so you don’t have to clean before a client comes over. Do you avoid replying to booking enquiries because the thought of crafting a response is exhausting to you? Maybe you need to spend some time creating response templates so that you can quickly and easily reply to clients. Spend a little time identifying your barriers and setting yourself up for productive working.

Hack #5: Get Moving

I know it’s tempting to stay inside all day when you work from home, but it’s important to go out into the world and interact with other humans. Give yourself breaks from screen time and get fresh air, get your body moving and get your endorphins flowing. Taking a break actually increases your efficiency and helps you do more purposeful work. Whether it’s doing a yoga video on your balcony, going for a 30-minute walk or hitting a CrossFit class, it’s important to honour those breaks you’d likely be taking if you worked in an office. Don’t avoid a lunch break or some 15-minute time chunks where you get up and move your body.

Well, there you have it! Working from home presents a whole new list of challenges. Be aware of the way you’re setting yourself up for success, how you’re compartmentalising work and home life, and how you can remove barriers to ensure you get work done, while still being able to shut off and enjoy where you live!

However, I can’t relay every experience of sex work – especially if I haven’t experienced it myself.
