It's been a challenging transition, going from a day job to working from home. Sometimes having all the time in the world worked against me; I would put off doing work because I had time to do it later...then I would get nothing accomplished. So I've put together a few tips that help me get work done:
1. Get Dressed for Work. Put on something nice and inspiring, just like you would for a fun day job. Trust me, you'll be more productive if you feel professional. I never get good work done if I'm in my PJs.
3. Have a Designated Workspace. Keep it clean and tidy, put up some inspiring artwork or quotes, and make it a lovely spot that you look forward to working in.
3. Keep a Schedule. Get into a routine so you know when it's time to work and when it's time to play. This will help keep you productive.
4. Take Breaks. Get up and stretch every hour, reward yourself with a snack break, or a tea break in the afternoon. I find this helps break up the hours, leaving me refreshed to keep at it!
Do you work from home? I'd love to hear any other great tips.
