Creating and sticking to a morning "pre-work" routine, can replace the morning commute and get you ready to start your day. Try a 5 minute morning meditation, gratitude list or journal practice to get your day started.
Even though working from bed or the couch might sound comforting, creating a dedicated work space at a desk or table is more ergonomically friendly. Plus, it helps with boundaries and leaves the feeling of comfort for those other spaces of your home.
Working from home means that you have access to your kitchen all day long. Preparing healthy meals and snacks ahead of time can help prevent mindless grazing throughout the day and saves you time.
Make a habit of getting movement in throughout your day to improve your energy, productivity and focus. Schedule a brisk walk outside, a 5-minute stretch, or a lunchtime yoga class to help refresh and refocus.
It can be easy to let the workday slip into your personal time if boundaries aren't set. Setting and sticking to a daily clock-out time can even help you be more productive during your work day.
