Transitioning from going to the office every day to working from your home can take some getting used to. With so many distractions like pets, kids, and chores, it may be hard to adjust, but we’re here to help! These tips and tricks are ways to keep you motivated and help you stay focused.
⏰ Get Out of Bed!
Without your regular commute, the temptation to stay in bed until the last minute is strong. Start your day off on the right foot by getting out of bed at least 30 minutes before starting your workday. Use that time to get ready, eat breakfast, and whatever else you normally do before heading into the office.
Having a productive morning, instead of just rolling out of bed, goes a long way in making you feel ready to tackle your inbox.
Pro Tip: If you find yourself in need of an extra boost, adding B-12 can be just the vitamin you need to keep you going!† Just because you’re working from home doesn’t mean you should let your wellness routine suffer. Keep up with your vitamins and supplements to make sure your wellness goals stay on track!
💻 Establish a Dedicated Workspace
One of the biggest challenges you face while working from home is separating your work life from your home life. Having a dedicated workspace helps with that. Pick a spot in your home that you can set up as a workstation. Whether it’s a separate room or just a portion of your dining room table, having a dedicated area to work goes a long way in helping you separate work from home.
Pro Tip: Find your work zen. Diffusing your favorite essential oils can help refresh your space and inspire you. We recommend something bright and energizing like Orange Sweet Oil or calm and relaxing like Lavender Oil.
Planning your day in advance helps ensure you’re staying on top of your work. With distractions all around, it can be easy to get derailed and behind on your workload. Make a daily goal list and stick with it! Whether you’re writing your tasks down, creating a spreadsheet, or setting reminders on your phone/calendar, it’s important to develop a schedule to keep yourself on task.
🌞 Take a Break
As important as keeping on task is, it’s just as important to take breaks. Schedule a meeting with yourself for at least a ½ hour for some “me” time – stretch, take a walk, or do something to get your body moving. This helps break up the day and keeps you motivated.
Pro Tip: Add a little sunshine to your day with Vitamin D! Working from home may mean for some that you’re not getting outside as much as you normally do and you’re losing out on beneficial sunshine! Adding a supplement to your routine ensures you’re getting the amount of Vitamin D you need, even with less time outside†
