Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a good week so far. Did you watch the last episode of Game of Thrones? I cannot wait for next Sunday to see the new one. I’ll be sad when the shows end, but at the same time, I really need to know the ending.
Anyway, the post of today is based on my daily routine. Maybe you don’t know, but I work remotely from home. While the idea of not having to leave your house to work sounds fantastic, it is sometimes a challenge because you’re tempted to work in your bed or getting distracted on the Internet. For that reason, I wanted to share with you some tips that have helped me overcome these setbacks and work efficiently.
Set a work station
As I told you before, the fact that you don’t have to leave your house to work will make you feel like you can also work in your bed. Although it’s nice, it’s good to set a special place to work during the day to keep an order in your life, maintain yourself focus and accustom your body to the idea that the work station is used to work and your bed to sleep.
Make a to-do list for the day
Another important thing is a to-do list because it helps you track all the things for the day. It happened to me that since I didn’t leave home, I lost track of time and forgot to do other daily chores. Thanks to my list I keep everything organised: work, chores and events.
Don’t skip meals!
No matter how busy you are, it’s very important to set some time to have all your meals. Sometimes, and it happened to me since I’ve been working from home, you lose track of time and end up having lunch at 5! To avoid that, it’s important to set an schedule or even an alarm for your meals. Remember that skipping meals or eating at irregular times is harmful for your health.
Don’t stay in your PJs all day!
This tip is similar to the first one. Although you don’t have dress super formal to be at home, you should always change from your PJs because if you don’t, you can feel sleepy or even lazy during the day. Changing to fresh clothes will make you feel in work mode.
Take breaks during the day
One of the tips I swear by is to take breaks during the day. After an hour or two, I tend to take a 10 minute break to avoid feeling stressed. It also helps me because I used to work non-stop until lunch or the end of the day and when I did, I used to feel super tired. Taking breaks to check social media or just even stretch helps me feel renewed.
I hope that my tips help you a bit if you work at home. It’s been more than a year that I work from home and I really enjoy it. I feel that I have more freedom, but I still need to organise all of my day to be able to do everything I want to do.
