And oh boy, you can ask me any time how i’ve almost lost my mind. Finding balance when working from home can be super tough. I’ve found myself not leaving the house for weeks, staying in my pjs, messy hair, no make up and just working. Which, i know, to most will sound ideal, and in a way is.
I’ve experienced the toughest stage of it, this week. With the moving, chaos everywhere, and working at the same time, i’ve been stuck inside, and it can just drive you crazy. Now it really changes from person to person on what refreshes them, but i believe there are a few things, that will do for most of you.
This is my number one and first on the list. Nothing will you feel refreshed than a nice shower, putting something nice on, and get your hair done. Even if your cat is the only one to see you. You’re doing it for yourself, not neglecting the things that make you feel nice.
change your routine
From times to times. There are weeks that i eat breakfast in the living room, and others that at the balcony. Sometimes i take a shower in the mornings, others in the evenings. Switching your routine will make your days interesting, and why not get adventurous and do something for your self, or take a walk?
Regularly! Even if it’s just after an hour or two. From five, to fifteen minutes, for a snack, a quick walk, or to sit on the couch, stretch and take a nap. You’ll feel much more inspired and less tired within your day.
make time to socialise
No matter how your schedule looks, make sure there’s one or two days that you stay away from your computer / phone. For me it’s the weekend, and i make sure to make the most of it. See friends, go for a walk, visit a new place, do something different, interact and see people.
meditate / exerscize
With the last and most important, exercise. Signing for yoga classes has been the best thing i’ve done in a long time. Not only it gives me three hours in a week to change scenery, it also good for my body. Stretching and feeling more healthy, rather than rotting on the chair.
