Wake up at the same time

When you work from home, it can be tempting to stay in bed until the very last minute possible. While it’s OK to treat yourself and do this on the odd occasion, wake up at the same time every day.

You don’t have to wake up ridiculously early, just set your alarm for whatever time is...

You need to set boundaries between your life and your work.

  • Avoid logging on as soon as you wake up — unless it’s urgent, your inbox and messages can wait until you’re ready to start working.
  • If you can, try not to waste too much time mindlessly scrolling on so...


Go for a walk, do some light yoga, go to the gym, or sign up for an online class.

It’s really down to individual choice, but if you can, mix things up so that you don’t become easily bored or complacent.

Showering and getting dressed before you start working is key. You’ll feel more confident and focused.

  • Go through your to-do list and set realistic goals for the day.
  • Think about what needs to happen for you to achieve your goals and set yourself a clear strategy.

Don’t set a vague goal like “I will drastically cut my screen time.” Instead, focus on things like “I will watch one epis...

Limit the number of decisions you have to make in the morning.

Prepare as much as you can the night before: set out your clothes, think about what you want to have for breakfast, or lunch. Batch cook if you can.
