I’m Home!!! I’m finally Working from Home!!!

That’s right folks! I am finally working from home! I’m so happy! And so far, so good πŸ™ƒ

So I’ve learned a few things, my first couple days home:

  1. We did not put enough insulation in, I can hear EVERYTHING!
  2. I love to have a choice on having a window open! Awww… fresh air πŸŒ…
  3. I always set my clothes out the night before, keep that routine otherwise you’ll be in you PJs all day….which is comfy but I don’t feel like I’m “ready” for the day with jammies on. (So I change my sweatpants 😝)
  4. Make a schedule for your kids! My daughter was getting used to being in charge while I worked, but they always argued about what to do, so I found a few summer schedules online and used different pieces to create my own.
  • 5. When you’re day is done, it’s done! Turn everything off and shut down.
  • 6. Take breaks!
  • Shhh… sometimes my break involves a quick hug and kiss from kiddos πŸ™‚ a bonus working from home, you can do that πŸ‘πŸ»
  • **But one suggestion with this, use a timer. That way you and your kiddos know when the break is done and you have to head back.
  • 7. Have a dedicated space to work. I’m so thankful my hubby built an office for me! That way I feel like my work and home are in a way, still separate.
  • 8. Watch what you eat! I found myself all day grazing away in the cupboards 😬
  • 9. Give yourself a break- there are some days that aren’t going to go smooth working from home, but you’ll figure it out. Just stay committed and you’ll figure it out.
  • 10. Stay Connected- right away it was hard for me to adjust not having others around greeting me in the morning and asking about my weekend. To help with that, I online chat with a few team members regularly and I have one day I go into the office ( and honestly that’s enoughπŸ˜‰). But really if you came from an office and are making that transfer to WAH, figure out a good way to stay connected. You’re still part of a team!
  • I am beyond blessed and thank God everyday, for this opportunity to work from home! He always has a plan and provides πŸ™πŸ»

  • Hope you have a blessed day xoxo

    1. I have been working from home too. And i totally love the flexibility. Point #9 is so so true! There are bound to be upheavals but stay committed. I also use some tools to make sure I don’t stray away from work while I have to work. All the best!
