These tips should help keep you on track while you work from home!
Stick to a Schedule
Don't sacrifice your 8-5 flow just because you're at home. Maintaining your usual work schedule will help make you feel less like you're just hanging out at home!
De-clutter Your Space
Only keep things that are being used within your view. Marie Kondo is the queen of organization and she's got killer advice on how to tidy your (home) office desk.
Keep an Updated To-Do List
This'll help you stay on track and accountable to upcoming deadlines. Plus, there's nothing more satisfying than checking tasks off your list!
Short, planned breaks can help increase productivity and ensure you don't burn out. Some healthy break ideas are going for a short walk, reading a book, doodling, or making a fresh pot of coffee!
Don't Lose Sight of Family Time
It's important to focus on your family each night and make sure you're giving yourself a mental break from work. We're not going to lie, it can be tricky to determine when it's time to stop working if your desk is also your kitchen table. Having a nice dinner to treat yourself after a hard day's work is always the solution!
Create Morning and Evening Routines
Closing the door or blinds in your "office" when you're done with work can help you signify the official end of the workday. Maybe you'll even want to cue up Closing Time by Semisonic!
Remember to take the time do what's best for you and your work style. If you do, working from home can be an awesome and productive experience!
