    Number 5 is one of the most important ones, in my opinion. Working from home makes you feel like you’re always “at work.” Even when you’re watching TV at the end of the day, it’s not uncommon to think, “Why am I kicking back when I could be writing an outline right now?”

    So yes, hit that snooze button. Plan your day, follow your to-do list, but don’t be a slave to your daily responsibilities.

    Thanks Gemma 😉

      You’re right about that. It was a huge adjustment for me when I first started working at home. But now, I’m really enjoying myself a lot! Not as much pressure as working in the office.

      Glad you liked the article!

    Great advice here. Yes, in particular creating a comfortable and productive work space is key. This also goes hand in hand with time blocking – so dedicated space + dedicated time = great productivity.

    Hi Gemma,

    You caught me with that number 4. I’m a victim to that percentage of people that don’t sleep well at night. I pray it does not come calling on my health.

    Thanks for the advice, anyway. It’s one of those things that comes with building a new startup.

    Cheers.

      As the old saying goes, “health is wealth”. You should always take care of yourself so you can be healthy enough to do whatever you want. You deserve to rest your mind and body every now and then.

    Paying attention to your health can be a challenge when your own home is your workplace. It is absolutely imperative; it becomes easy to let yourself go when you work in the same place that you hang out and do things you love to do. Thank you for this post, it’s a great source for the homepreneurs that are just starting out!

      You are right. But, I think some people would disagree as I know people who find it less stressful to work at home instead of the office. Moreover, I believe that you should always get some to rest no matter what type of work setting you have. Stretch your legs out, look away from your computer for a few minutes, close your eyes for a while…a short rest can do big things for you.

        Yes, rest is always necessary! You want to avoid burnout regardless of your circumstances. Thank you for the response!

          Agreed. I often find myself unable to function – no matter how easy the content is and how much I normally enjoy it.

          I took this entire weekend off, and now I feel like new again.
