How To Work From Home (in your pj’s)

For almost the past two months, I’ve been off school and honestly, it is SO difficult not to nap all day. Coming from someone that needs twelve hours of sleep, I understand the struggles of getting things done without being lazy.

These are three things I do that help me stay focused and energized to get my work done:

  1. Wake up at the same time every day- I know, I know, easier said than done but trust me, nothing screams SCHEDULE like waking up at the same time each day. It almost puts my body in a routine where I know exactly what I need to get done at what hour of the day. Also, having a regular sleep schedule means a healthy body, mind and spirit because you’re getting all the necessary rest your body needs to feel rejuvenated and refreshed.
  2. Take breaks- It’s easy to just get caught up in work and forget to take a breather. Sometimes, I’ll spend hours on my laptop without noticing that I haven’t ate or gone outside all day. In my opinion, this limits creativity and the ability to concentrate. Lately, I have been setting time restraints such as making sure I focus for an hour and then grabbing a snack or playing with my pup for a few minutes before returning to my task. It is also good to look away from a screen if you’re someone like me that transitions from looking at a computer to a phone.
  3. Change of setting- I find it so difficult to be in one room all day. That’s why I love to switch up where I’m working. Whether it be a coffee shop or just moving from my room to my backyard, I find the power of change of space to be very beneficial. Also, working in your bedroom tends to make people lazy since your mind associates your room as a space to relax and sleep. Some people however, are immune to this and can work perfectly fine in their bedroom. For myself however, I find it super helpful to switch up my setting. It also increases my creativity as I believe each space has its own vibe- that changes the way you feel and in turn, do your work.

Well, there you have it! Just some tidbits on how I stay focused and get stuff done while at home. Oh and also, chocolate helps a lot too. And caffeine.
