9 Ways to Increase Your Work-at-Home Productivity

Some days I feel like I’ve been insanely busy but I haven’t gotten anything important done. Other days, Hulu and a nap are calling me. I adore working from home, but it’s not all that easy to be productive when you work from home. There are endless distractions at home that you don’t have to contend with in a normal workplace.
