WORKING FROM HOME CAN BE CHALLENGING AS HELL, BUT IT IS THE BEST CHOICE I HAVE EVER MADE!!! HERE ARE SOMETHINGS I HAVE LEARNED FROM BEING FULL-TIME FROM HOME!

 

1. REMEMBER TO EAT

It may sound weird but when you work from home (even more when you work for yourself) sometimes eating gets put on the back burner. Remember to eat by setting tour alarm and preparing and planning your meals at the beginning of each week! A well balanced diet and a properly fueled body is super important and must not be forgotten.

 

2. YOUR SLEEP SCHEDULE CAN BE AFFECTED BY YOUR INCREASED AMOUNT OF SCREEN TIME

When you work from home it seems that you look at a screen way more than usual. Instead of going to grab lunch or hitting up happy hour with your coworkers after work, you may find yourself on social media craving social interaction and working late nights way too many nights. Make it a point to turn off your screen at a certain time each night and use blue light filters and glasses. The screens on our phones, TV and computers can mess with our systems and make it harder to fall asleep each night if you aren’t careful.

 

3. SET A SCHEDULE AND STICK TO IT 

You will be much happier if you not only set a schedule but create work and home boundaries for yourself. When you work from home it’s easy to find yourself like me right now writing a blog at 3:07am instead of sleeping! Haha! So take the extra time to get up and start work and shut it off at the same time each day as much as possible. And separate your office space from your home space as much as humanly possible!

4. MAKE MORE TIME FOR SELF CARE

Working from home can be draining and lonely, especially if you are a social butterfly like me. Take the extra time to do the things you love and care about in order to keep your mentally stable and healthy. I like to enjoy a homemade latte each morning on my porch, take a bath each night and I just signed myself up for adult hip-hop dance classes 2 times a week!

 

5. MAKE ONLINE (OR IN PERSON) FRIENDS WHO UNDERSTAND WORKING FROM HOME OR OWNING A BUSINESS 

Nothing is worse than when everyone around you works a “regular” job and doesn’t understand the boundaries and schedules you have to set for yourself. It feels so good to have a friend or two to lean on when your work from home job is driving you crazy! Plus it’s an added bonus when they do work from home and once a month you can work at one another’s house to create that feeling of having coworkers when shit gets lonely!

Last but not least just remember that like anything else it will be an adjustment. Some days you may hate it but you also have to keep in mind the benefits and it’s that why you’re doing this in the first place!
