Since being on Maternity leave I never fully went back to work which means it’s official I am working from home Mom! You know what’s funny when I started my online store one of my reason was so I could work from home on my own schedule one day when I was a Mom.
Now did I really have any idea what being a Mom was or that hey maybe I would want to actually leave the house some days…. nope? Anyways, save that for another post!
Here are my tips for successfully working from home and staying on track!
1 | Stay ORGANIZED (I can’t stress this one enough!) so when it is time get work done you know exactly what is on the agenda and what you have to do.
2 | Have a clean workspace—> this is my goal for 2019. I have no idea what happened to my office over the holidays (while I do know --> a toddler that gets into anything, so we need to hide things on him). If you caught my Instagram post this week then you know I have done phase 1 of an office clean. And wow did it make a difference in work habits! When it is tidy and organized I work way faster also wanting to work in my office as opposed to the couch. That being said I am typing this from the couch which is pretty awesome.
3 | Set a timer for certain tasks. I find if I need to do x, y, z if I set a timer for 45 mins to work on x when that’s wrapped I check in with my self on whether I think I can still stay efficient with that task or need to move on.
4 | NOTEBOOKS! I love me some notebooks, I always buy them from Homesense because they are way cheaper then if you buy from the bookstore. What do I do in my notebooks? I start my day with a good old brain dump then break down my to-do’s from there. It is super nice to just free write not worrying about messing your planner up, lol.
5 | Comphy clothes but not sloppy clothes does that make sense?! My work from home uni usually involves leggings (I have quite the collection) and since it’s winter time I usually paired with a sweater. I also always put a regular bra on too, it just makes me feel more put together, lol. Shopping Tip--> Lately, I have been finding great leggings and sweaters at American Eagle... and they ALWAYS have amazing sales!
6 | A big old coffee mug! Every working from home boss babe needs a good mug...for obvious reasons! #coffeelover
