  • Do not check your phone (for work-related communication) first thing in the morning.
  • Exercise when you wake up.
  • Take it slow, and ease into work, rather than jumping into it.

Make a list of remaining tasks

There are some projects that we aren't able to finish in a day, but luckily for us, there's always a chance to finish it tomorrow.

So whatever task you have left from work, jot it down so you won't forget about it.

Family, Reflection and Email

Balancing work obligations with meaningful family time is an important part of building a successful evening routine.

An evening routine starts with family time. Tackle some to-do’s later on from your dedicated workspace. Leave some time for unstructured brainstorming or reflection too.

To give your day structure, keep the same routine as when you went into an office. Get up at the same time and make a to-do list. Check in with the same person every morning.

Your schedule will change over time as you adjust to your new working arrangement.
