Nick Mocuta Explains How To Stay Motivated While Working From Home

The on-going coronavirus pandemic has taken a toll on a lot of us – mentally, physically and psychologically. As the frontline healthcare workers and researchers find a cure for this disease, we are confined within the four walls of our houses, still adjusting and acclimatising to the new way of life. Working from home might be exciting for a certain fraction of people but a lot of people struggle with self-discipline and motivation.

Here are top tips from e-Commerce Tycoon Nick Mocuta – who has been working from home for quite a while now – on how to get your work done and turn your lazy days into productive ones:


  • Wake up early


When we have no boss to hold us accountable for showing up late, there’s essentially no reason to wake up early. However, waking up from the deep slumber at noon means the entire day is going to be lazy and less productive than it could have been had we woken up earlier. Nick advises the budding entrepreneurs to start their day early around 7 am and get surprised by how much they are able to get done by taking just one single step!


  • Don actual clothes


If we have no co-workers in an office setting, why should we not attire ourselves in the most comfortable pyjamas? Nick believes changing from his sleepwear to actual clothes has psychological effects on his mind. 

When we are wearing our sleepwear, our mind automatically assumes we are supposed “to relax” hence we struggle to accomplish basic tasks. Changing clothes prompts you to focus better.


  • Work out


Essentially all studies have proved that working out is full of long-lasting benefits, it not only keeps you in shape physically but has immense psychological and mental benefits as well. Your mind gets cleared, is rejuvenated and feels fresh; and your brain gets a boost, is able to focus better and you feel motivated to accomplish more.


  • Reward yourself


When you are working from home, there are hundreds of distractions: your dinging phone, your cat purring to get a cuddle, the appealing aroma from a neighbour’s kitchen, to name a few. However, to maintain your focus, try rewarding yourself with short breaks of pleasurable activities like watching a show or playing a video game. It will give you an incentive to get your work done with.

As we struggle to stay sane and get our work done, follow these tips from Nick Mocuta and start your day with a cup full of coffee and motivation!
