Be a pro when working from home


Home can also be a productive haven for you, if structured the right way. Some people who have both worked in an office, as well as at home usually say that working from home can degrade your lifestyle, and can also stifle productivity. Without any motivation, working from home can be more trouble than it's worth. It is all about getting the essentials first.

1. Colour and decoration

Whether you're a creative type or otherwise, a boring, plain coloured desk can be counterproductive. Have a desk filled with colour, and decorate it with candles, plants and other things that make you feel great. Crystals are also fantastic as well. New age theorists also purport that a couple of quartz crystals are great in front of your computer, to ward off any radiation. Plants are also great, especially bamboo plants. It's a good sign.

Surround yourself with beauty, instead of a grey cubicle.


2. The reasons why

Working from home without your motivational reasons as to why can be dangerous. With a loaded gun too soon, you're going to get shot. List both the pros and the cons of working from home, and then marry them up. If discipline is not your strongest suit, and you're someone who finds it difficult to concentrate, then stick to working away from the home. Sometimes it is exciting (at first, and is still done sometimes) to wear pyjamas while working. In order to work from home productively and effectively, it is important to get ready, dress and walk to your usual bus stop or train station, as if you're going to work away from the home, and then walk back home ready to start working. That way you have told your body and your mind that 'you're on.'

Organisation is key. Be creative in the home again.


3. Clothing

Elaborating on the above, and when working from home, it is important to dress nicely, and in clothes you feel great in. That way you're sending yourself a a message that "you're on," and "you're at work now, ready to help and to serve other people."

4. Natural light and other essentials

The importance of natural light and cool breezes coming into your home (while working) keeps you alert, and less likely to yawn at 2pm in the afternoon for instance. Have plenty of water with you, and drink as much crystal clear purity as you can. It is also important to take a brief break where need be, and find a pleasant and healthy way to reward yourself for your discipline of a job well done afterwards.

Love it


Furthermore, if at all possible, keep your work away from your bedroom, living room, and all other 'play' areas of your home. It is ideal for your home office to be a spare room, and that way you'll be able to close the door at the end of the 'working' from home day.
