Working from home may seem intimidating for those who aren't used to it, but it's just a matter of adaptation.
Unless you have to report to a workgroup that isn't lead by you, working from home and being your own boss can be a dream come true. Of course, you will have to keep some discipline within your lifestyle and out some effort. If you do, not only will you become your own boss, but you will also have the opportunity and extra time to share your daily life with those close to you.
All who are experienced at working from home recommend performing a series of "rituals" that help you feel that "you are no longer at home" and thus obtain a true "office" atmosphere that makes you think so. That way you won't feel you can just postpone it all when you please.
You should also have a comfortable chair, preferably one that is suitable for an office setup. Avoid screens that can distract you, like having a television on in some show that you know can take up your attention. Better yet, do not have the television on while you are "in the office" at all.
Create schedules and plans that you feel you can meet, whether you are working by the morning or in the afternoon. It is extremely important that you set aside time to eat and rest, and mainly, you must have time to "start and end the work routineâ€. If you don't youâ€™ll end up turning your life into an eternal "I am at work, do not disturb" cycle. Don't forget that there are other responsibilities to fulfill, or to put it simply: there's a life to live besides work.
