the home office

Working from home can be very tricky for some people. It is so easy to get distracted or stay in your pjs all day. Unfortunately, that probably won’t lead to a very productive day.. so here are a few tips for those enjoying the perks and struggles of their home office!

1.  Don’t stay in your pyjamas. Remember, you are at work.  Take a shower, get dressed and work in your office space. Not your dining room table or your couch, your office- this will help you stay focused.

2. Start your day with a to-do list ( and a coffee :) ) having priorities and tasks you need completed will get you started.

3. Have a separate phone line for business- you don’t want to end up on personal calls, your personal facebook, social media, or texting friends.  This will not only keep you focused during the day but it will also help you disconnect at night – when it is personal time.

4. Make that space your own and make it comfortable. Buy a nice chair and desk, frame pictures, quotes, and stay organized. Make that space inspiring, energizing, an office you want to work in.

5. If you find yourself doing laundry, vacuuming or distracted by other house chores, try a coffee shop! Sometimes a little break outside of the house can do you some good.
