Whether you’re a freelancer, self-employed, or anything in-between, working from home can be an adjustment. Here are a few tips to add some structure – and fun – to your home work life!
1. Print your schedule each week
Nothing says organization like a schedule and a simple to-do list! Keep your day structured by outlining your week. List your projects or obligations, and include due dates or goals.
2. Decorate your desk, office, or workspace
Your office is completely yours, so you have complete creative control! You can make it simple and professional, or go crazy with colors – it’s all you!
3. Strategize your soundtrack
Some like to crank out their work with a high-tempo playlist. Others are most productive with instrumental, easy listening, or even nature sounds. Plan ahead and make a productive workday soundtrack and press play!
4. Diversify your breaks
There is no limit to what you can do on a break from your home office! You can run some errands, meet friends for a late lunch, or even clean your kitchen. Be sure to schedule in breaks when planning your week.
