Whether you function from a home office or telecommute occasionally, you would have probably encountered a host of distractions that disrupt your productivity.

Although the perks of working from your home office can be overwhelming, the baggage it brings with it can be daunting. Staying put in your pajamas and working from the comfort of your home can certainly increase your productivity, but it can also lead to a multitude of distractions like getting laundry done, household chores and annoying neighbors who don't quite understand the concept of "work from home".
