Wake up at the same time

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 realistic and works for you.

Avoid going online first-thing

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 social media.
  • Cut your screen time as much as you can and remember you’ll get plenty of it while you’re working.

Exercise

Exercise

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.

Shower and get dressed

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

It’s tempting to roll out of bed and sit at your desk, but before you know it, it’ll be noon and you’ll have to dash off to get ready for your video call. Don’t do this, save yourself the stress!

Have breakfast

Have breakfast

Have your coffee, tea, or whatever but make sure you hydrate yourself both at breakfast and during the rest of your day.

Consider getting organized and preparing your breakfast the night before. Overnight oats are a deliciously healthy option.

It’s easy to stuff yourself with chocolate biscuits and crisps when you’re working from home but try and keep a balanced diet. Your mind and body will thank you.

House chores

Set some time aside every morning to do some household chores. This will help you feel more productive before you start working and you’ll be less distracted by the possibility of tidying or cleaning while you’re sitting at your desk.

Be time-efficient and set an alarm on your phone to avoid getting carried away. Do whatever you have time for and then stop.

Listen to music or a podcast

Listen to music or a podcast

Start your day with something that makes you happy. 

  • You could, for example, listen to music while you’re doing some housework.
  • Catch up with your favorite podcast and get yourself into the zone.

Enjoying some time to yourself before your work begins will make you feel more at ease.

Set your goals for the day

  • 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.
  • Try and keep the list short, though, otherwise, you’ll likely feel overwhelmed. Try and stick to a maximum of five goals.

Limit your screentime and distractions

Limit your screentime and distractions

In order to meet those realistic goals you set for the day, make sure distractions like social media and push notifications don’t get a hold of you.

Don’t set a vague goal like “I will drastically cut my screen time.” Instead, focus on things like “I will watch one episode of Succession per day,” or ‘I will scroll through Instagram for 15 minutes before I start my work.”

Golden tidbit

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.

The less time you spend on making trivial decisions, the more time you’ll have to spend on things that matter to you and make you happy.
