Tips For Working at Home

November 11, 2016

tips-for-working-at-homeI’ve been working from home for almost a year now. While I can say it is for me (a somewhat social introvert), I must say that it is not for everyone. I decided to school you if you are thinking about doing it. Starting with…

Your Social Life – Make a Promise to Yourself.

When I decided to work from home, I did it because I was at a high-stress toxic office job, and I found that while I’m a great communicator, I work the best when no one is looking over my shoulder. It did mean cutting coworkers out of my day-to-day activities. I made the resolution to stay in touch with my beloved coworkers, and to strengthen my friendships. Turns out, my tiredness went away as soon as I started working from home, giving me more time to plan outings with my friends. My social like couldn’t be any better!

Organizing Time:

I am now able to sleep in by 45 minutes now that I don’t have any commute at all. But I make sure I get up at the same time every day. 7:30 works best for me, earlier if I’m going to the gym in the morning. From then I use the first hour of work (9 ish) to answer emails and get started for the day. Two hours I work but make sure to take 5-10 minute breaks in between. I get up and walk around my apartment or have a healthy snack. I deal with client accounts so I organize what parts I’ll do first into two hour or hour blocks. Noon is the time that I take my hour lunch break and/or go outside for a walk. Then the rest of the day is spent doing those same blocks of time until its 5 PM and I can unplug.

Health:

My eating habits have improved since working from home, contrary to what most people would probably do. I make sure to stock the fridge with healthy meals, and I meal prep salads for lunch. I just grab and go! Saving on the commute time also lets me enjoy longer workouts. I’m no longer anxious all the time too (bonus).

Saving:

While I do not make as much as I could make working corporate, working from home is a trade off. I save on transportation, put fewer miles on my car, and save the planet at the same time! Win-win.
