After 3 years of working from home, here’s what I’ve learned

When I first started working from home three years ago it was a definite culture shock. I started researching the BEST way to work from home and while I picked up a few tips along the way, here’s what I found worked the best.

Do what works for you

Step one: don’t listen to all those blog posts that tell you that you MUST get out of your pajamas every day and pretend like you’re going to work. Some of my best ideas have come from sitting in a pair of comfy pj bottoms.

Don’t multi-task

This is a general life tip: focus on the task at hand. I used to think that multitasking was the way to be more productive, but instead I made more mistakes and felt more overwhelmed when trying to do 2-3 things at once. Focus.

Have a morning routine

When you work from home, it can be tempting to roll right out of bed and onto the computer. Well, logging on to the computer (after a big cup of coffee of course). I wake up thinking of all I have to get done that day and the temptation is to get right to it. But I’ve learned that doesn’t work well for me. I feel overwhelmed and stressed without taking some time in the morning to focus my mind, calm my body, and organize my thoughts.

In the end...

You simply have to find what works for YOU. How does this happen? Trial and error baby.

  • “True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.

True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world and find sacredness in both being a part of something and standing alone in the wilderness.” @brenebrown

  • This year I signed on as a marketing columnist for my local newspaper The Mountain Ear!

My first column came out last week and talks about the beginning steps toward setting up a social media marketing plan for your small business. As a digital-driven millennial, it's fun to see my words in print. 😊
  • Decisions are not isolated events. They point us in the direction we're headed. While I feel like I've made a lot of progress this past year, there are things in my past that are holding me up. I'm making a commitment to let go of that hurt instead of trying to make it better. Saying goodbye was always the right decision. I just wish I'd realized that sooner.
