There are lots of ways to motivate yourself when working at home. Knowing what they are can really help you get through your to do list each day.
Some may be accused of not having a "real" job when working at home. Even so, statistics beg to differ. Look at blogging, freelance writing and independent sales. So, whatever your "job" may be, look at the following ways to motivate yourself when working at home.
1. Take a Siesta
This will create better productivity. Look at all the countries with siestas in their daily life and how great they are for the people who live there. Adding a rest to your day is one of the easiest ways to motivate yourself when working at home.
2. Go outside for Breaks
A little vitamin D and some fresh air can cheer you up.
3. Give Yourself Rewards
For example, a nice "work" outfit or a tasty lunch that isn't just a sandwich.
4. Have a Conversation with Another Human
This could be a phone call to family and friends or you could join a work from home group that you can meet up with from time to time.
5. Create Healthy Meals and Snacks at Home
Not only is this healthy to do, but you will save money. No more expensive restaurant lunches or dinners.
6. Listen to Music
Not super loud, but enough to keep you plugging along. Music can be motivating and make the day seem a bit better.
7. Have a Morning Routine
Have your coffee on, put on a comfy outfit (who cares what the experts say), put on a little makeup, do your hair and spray on some perfume. You're ready to work.
8. Organize Your Work Space
Do this every day after finishing work so it is nice for the next working day.
9. Have a Motivational Board and Some Decorations
This will inspire and pretty up the place, but will also keep you on track with your career goals.
10. Have a Comfy Chair
Your body deserves it! Look on YouTube for some chair exercises to do throughout your day or night.
