The Best Loungewear On Amazon: Leopard Pajama Set
As most of you know, earlier this year I quit my corporate job to work from home full-time. I split my time between working on my own blog, Moody Wife, and traveling to Auburn, AL to create content for The Mint! That being said, working from home was a WHOLE adjustment. There are so many things I’m still getting used to, but I’m figuring out what works for me! I know many of you are living that work-from-home life, too, after everything we went through in 2020 and are still going through.
Full transparency: this adjustment has not been easy for me. I’ve learned a lot about myself. Today, I wanted to share 3 tips that have helped me adjust to the WFH life!
Working From Home Tips
#1 Find An Environment You Thrive In
Something I realized REAL quick: I absolutely hate being at home all day. I also learned that I handle stress really poorly when I’m home alone. The smallest stressor makes me spiral into a frenzy. A local coffee shop has become my safe haven and I get so much work done when I’m there. Plus, I feel at ease when I’m there. When I face something stressful, I handle it calmly and I don’t feel as alone. You have to create a space and a vibe that helps you feel your best. And contrary to the title of this post, that might not be your home!
#2 Have A Morning Routine
When I first started working from home, I would jump out of bed and go straight to my computer and start work immediately. I’d get so tied up working, it would be noon before I ever got up again, changed clothes, or got anything to eat. Here’s a pro-tip, don’t go straight from the bed to stressing about work. Take time to make coffee, get dressed, maybe even go on a walk. I started walking first thing in the mornings when my anxiety was at its worst and it helped a lot. I have my time with the Lord and lay all of my worries at His feet, and THEN I start my day. Trust me on this one.
#3 Be Okay With Not Finishing Your To-Do List
This is a BIG one that I am still learning how to do. When you are working from home, you are technically always at work. My laptop is always within reach. It is so easy for me to remember something I needed to get done that day and be tempted to work on it at 10 PM. When you work in an office, everyone goes home at 5 PM. It’s like this understood concept of: “we’ll get to it tomorrow if we didn’t finish it today” but when you work from home, it’s easy to feel expected to keep working until everything is done. I’ve had to force myself to shut work off at dinner time and tell myself tomorrow is another day.
One of the best parts about working from home is getting to work in your pajamas! I do get ready most days when I’m going to be working at a coffee shop or if I have a Zoom meeting, but for the most part, I am living in loungewear.
