Working from home find you in a funk some days? No corporate lunches at fancy restaurants? No office crush to wear heels for? Here are some rituals and rhythms to help you stay at the top of your game.
💅🏻 Dress for success.
Sure, we all love living in leggings. (I'm not going to lie, I do too.) But taking a shower to start the day, applying make up or painting your nails occasionally can boost self esteem and positively affect our drive and results.
🚶🏻♀️'Grin-and-Bear-It' only works so long.
Studies show that our best work is done incrementally. Plan stopping points and breaks in your workday. Wrap up a project, step away from your computer and take a breather.
🕰️ Know yourself.
All of us are wired differently. Do you crank out your best work in the morning? Are your creative juices flowing after the kids go to bed at night? Maximize the hours that you know are your best.
🎁 Treat yourself.
Working from home may not come with bonuses and raises and paid vacation, but if shouldn't be void of little luxuries. Allow yourself that mid-day latte. Purchase that fun monogrammed phone cover or invest in that desk that you've been eyeing.
