If you work at home, like I do, you’re going to want to learn these 5 tips to help you become more productive, and feel less burnt out.
After starting my crochet business and blog, I’ve come to realize (and remember) that when you work at home, you are virtually never away from work. For years I worked as an online community manager and it was the same thing. There is no on and off switch like there is when you work outside of the home. Instead of working less often, I find myself working at all hours, day and night.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s nice to be able to work in my jammies and to be able to easily prepare a home cooked meal every night. But… depending on how you look at it, being home all the time can be both a blessing and a curse.
I realized what I was doing wrong while reading this terrific article at Problogger, These 5 Rules Will Help You Work More Productively At Home.
The article is written and geared towards bloggers but I think the tips would work for anyone who works at home including crafters and crocheters too.
It’s not an easy fix, but things like setting regular working hours, specified break times, and having an end of work day routine certainly will help… if you stick to it.
If you’re looking to improve your productivity while reducing your work stress, I highly recommend you go read the article.
Do you have any helpful tips for those of us who work at home? If you do, please share them in the comments. I love hearing from my readers.
