Maintain a Daily Routine

The first point to make is that routine is everything and so make sure that you have a daily routine and stick to it. The time that you start and end work is, on the whole, irrelevant.  What is important is that the times are the same each and every working day.

Mark Your Working Territory

We are all creatures of habit and so ensuring that you have a designated workspace is paramount. This means that your home office should be off limits to anyone else who may be at home during working hours.

The home office also needs to contain any equipment and resources you need to get your work done. No wondering around your home in search of the things you need wastes valuable time.

    My home office is a mess right now. Our homeschooling, my office, and bedroom are in one space and there’s too much mess. But as long as I can face my computer, I can concentrate. Of course, as long as the kids don’t keep on bickering.

I don’t have a designated desk space except my teaching desk for my online classroom. I need a work desk for blogging and such. I want a pretty space that will make me feel motivated.

  21. Oct 25, 2018 / 1:24 pm

    What a nice office. I wish I had a home office. I do work from home, but I do all my work from the living room couch. We just don’t have the space for an office, alas.
