5  TIPS WHEN WORKING FROM HOME I SWEAR BY:

1) GET UP AND GET DRESSED:

Anyone who works from home will tell you that putting real clothes on is a must if you want to have a productive day. Even if it’s just putting on anything other than work out clothes or Pjs! Getting dressed immediately helps me feel better on the inside and when I feel good, I’m at my most productive. Getting up and preparing to tackle the day is by far one of my most important tips when working from home.

2) FIND OUT WHAT TIME OF DAY YOU’RE MOST PRODUCTIVE:

For me, it’s morning time! After my morning work out I start my work day because at the beginning of the day is when I’m at my most productive and energized self. I find if I wait until the afternoon to start my work, I might as well forget it; It’s not going to happen! So, my next tip when working from home is to find out what time of day you’re most productive and get your most difficult or important work done at that time, every day.

3) MAKE A LIST EACH WEEK OF WHAT YOU NEED TO GET DONE AND PRIORITIZE IT:

I don’t know about you, but I am a list girl through and through. I make a list at the beginning of every week so I can plan my entire week out in advance. This ensures that I will get all of my work done on time. It also allows me to plan around events, photo shoots, and other activities that I may have so I don’t find myself unexpectedly out of time to finish my tasks. Whether your list is on paper or in your phone, writing it down is another one of my key tips when working from home.

4) BE CONSISTENT:

Set reasonable goals for yourself and stick to them, every day and every week. Keyword: REASONABLE! Holding yourself to unrealistic expectations will only discourage you when you inevitably fail to finish an impossible amount of tasks! My goals consist of publishing one video a week on YouTube, 3 blog posts a week, 1 IG post or reel every day, and 1 photo shoot every other week. I stick to these guidelines every single week and it really works for me. It pays off because you all expect to see my videos and blog posts and it’s attainable for me to achieve while still maintaining a healthy work/ life balance. This balance is especially necessary to avoid burnout, so set yourself up for success and set reasonable goals!

5) PUT YOUR PHONE AWAY WHILE WORKING:

Last but not least on my list of tips when working from home is probably the TOP TIP that helps me the most! When I need to get a blog post done I actually leave my phone in another room so I’m not distracted by incoming texts, emails, etc. Multi-tasking can be a good thing, but in today’s environment of over stimulation and constant availability, I find the need to separate myself from the hustle and bustle sometimes to truly focus on what is in front of me. Implementing even just one of these tips will help improve your productivity when working from home, I guarantee it!
