Do You Need A Work at Home Makeover?

February 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 143

When you get up do you reach for a cup of coffee even before your eyes are open? Starting your day on the right foot will decide how productive you are. I wake up every day with my Grace alarm. She is one of my two Dalmatian and she barks at the same time every day. She wants to go out and needs her breakfast. Before I get up to take care of them I take a minute to get centered. I have a routine that gets me ready for my work day.

Stress can kill the best intentions you have as a home business owner, that is why it is so important for you to find what works best for you. Every day people start a business from home and every day people give up and quit. You have to have a plan.

I know everyone has a morning routine and if it works for you don't mess with it. There are people who don't, so I know that these thing help me and they will help you. Working from home you don't have anyone telling you what you have to do and when to do it. Schedule yourself in the time you have is something you need to do if you work from home. Your schedule changes daily when you work from home especially if you have children. You need to plan so that you get as much done in the time you set aside for your business.

Here are just a somethings things that are a must for me.

Stretching is one way to get the blood moving to wake up your brain. I do it before I get up and throughout my day. Showering - I want to wash the night and the day before so you can feel fresh to start each day. Getting dressed - I put myself in a different mind-set then if I crawled out of bed and went straight to the computer. It set the stage for my work day. Whether you shower the night before or the next morning it's your business, you need to get dressed. A well put together person shows that they are ready for the work day. I'm not talking about a three-piece suit. Just get out of your bath robe into some comfortable street clothing. Drink your coffee or tea while you are going over your list and schedule for the day. Eat breakfast to fuel your body to keep it functioning at its best. Doing some form of exercise is good for your mind and your body, if you work out that's great. I take my dogs for walk every day. I feel better and so will you when you prepare yourself for your day. Setting a time and a limit on everything I do, so I don't get distracted especially on the computer. Face book and twitter will lead me astray and I don't want spend my day in social media. I even put a time down to eat lunch and take breaks. Our brain needs fuel, water and rest to work at its best. This is why I schedule my breaks into my day. I have to schedule uninterrupted time to make and return phone calls.

I'm not suggesting you change a thing if what you're doing is working, you don't want to mess it up. I found that if I don't put something off that is on my list it builds my momentum and it is easier to for me to get things done. Don't ignore how important it is to stay focus. Distraction can defeat the best laid out plan.

As a mother I will not compromise the time I spend with the family. I take one morning and prep foods that I will need to make healthy meals for the week. I do laundry while I work and add one hour of house work to my workout schedule. It is a challenge to keep from feeling over whelmed some days, but without a plan I would just flounder throughout my day not getting anything done. The key to working from home is to set a routine that works for you. Make a plan and be ready to follow through with your commitments. You will find that as you set it up that some things work better than others. You can change it, you're the boss.

Taking care of you is the very first thing to schedule. We are willing to makeover our appearance to feel better about ourselves. How you work from home does matter. Do you need a work at home make over to feel good about your home business? You are more productive when you feel good, which builds momentum and before you know it there is a shift in your attitude. Working from home is a choice and getting into a productive mind-set starts with you. You have obligations to your family and responsibilities to your business. It takes time and energy, so look at your routine and adjust it to support you and your business.
