Working from home has its ups and downs. There are many distractions and if you don’t get yourself into a routine ASAP you will find yourself being sucked into the black hole of “never getting anything done”. Routine is key. Get a schedule set up. Get up, get your coffee, do some stretches and then get to it:
Your routine shouldn’t just be about work, your day should be infused with breaks. Don’t forget you need to eat. I can’t tell you how many times I let the morning go by (when I’m not in my regular routine) and I have forgotten to eat breakfast. Eat breakfast, take a break for lunch, get some exercise throughout the day.
Of course, not all days are created equal, and some days your routine might get thrown in the air … but sticking to it as much as you can will turn into a good habit that’s hard to break!
(Oh, and don't forget to shower)
