When you are working at home you can decide when you want to work. Since you are your own boss, you can structure your business in a way that works best for your situation. What’s more, it can vary from day to day if you don’t like to be in a rut doing the same thing all the time.
There are a number of ‘the best things about working at home’ and one of the primary ones is that you don’t have to be shocked into consciousness by a noisy alarm clock. You can get up when you wake up. Another thing that will make you free is you can decide how many hours you will work each day. This too can vary. You can work for a while in the morning and finish up in the evening. It’s all good as long as you are taking care of business.
The idea of skipping the commute practically creates a state of euphoria if you have had to spend 2-hours driving a 1-hour distance. Don’t forget the drama of worrying the whole time that you will be late for work and what will happen.
If you work at home, you can get everything done that you need to do first thing. Then you can spend the day however you would like. Even if you can’t always take a day off, it’s very healthy to get out of the house on a regular basis for some space and ideally fresh air. Make a point of taking frequent breaks. Even 5-10 minutes with a couple deep breaths is refreshing.
Keep the time you have scheduled to work strictly productive. Reading email should definitely be restricted to say one-hour a day or less unless they are directly related to the customer service or support of your own business. Then of course they should be a priority and you should work as necessary to stay current. If you really want to shine, always respond within 24-hours – 48 at the max for exceptions like a day off, or holiday.
Whatever you do and however you decide to do it you are free! Don’t forget to enjoy it and remind yourself frequently that you are really lucky. In a good, relaxed environment there is every reason to believe you will spend your time wisely and achieve your goals .
