5 Ways To Stay Motivated While Working From Home

Because... #Coronavirus

"While we are all adjusting to this new normal of social distancing, I wanted to take a moment to share how I am staying motivated while working from home."

Right now, We are all terrified, worried silly, anxious, bored, antsy - all the emotions are real. However, the show must go and we have to pay our bills, therefore, most of us are working from home. While we are all adjusting to this new normal of social distancing, I wanted to take a moment to share how I am staying motivated while working from home.

"However, getting dressed when working from home creates a structure for yourself and help us stick to our schedules."

Put On Actual Work Clothes

We all know the saying, “dress for success”. It’s easy to just want to stay in our pajamas because well, we all love comfortability. However, getting dressed when working from home creates a structure for yourself and help us stick to our schedules. Showering, getting dressed and even putting on a little bit of makeup every morning sets the tone for your productivity.

"If you are fortunate enough to have a guest room, this is the perfect time to convert it into an office."

Don't Work Where You Sleep

Create a workspace! Having a dedicated workspace is important not only for maintaining a healthy work/life balance but for staying on task. When you work from your bed, there are myriad possible interruptions. One being, falling back into naps every other hour or so. If you are fortunate enough to have a guest room, this is the perfect time to convert it into an office. If not, set up a dedicated area in your room/home where you can work efficiently that’s free from distractions. I’ll suggest you work close to a window to take advantage of natural light. It’s been proven that natural light leads to increased work satisfaction, productivity, and well-being.

"Attempting to recreate an IRL working experience during these stressful times will help manage anxiety."



Make a Schedule


Maintaining a routine helps us with a sense of control and that could only be achieved by making a schedule. Attempting to recreate an IRL working experience during these stressful times will help manage anxiety. I simply create “work hours” for myself, print it out and stick it to my fridge.



"If you have a Poshmark, Etsy, eBay, time to go through your home and sell any UNWANTED items."

Have a Side-Project to Fill the Dead Space

This is the perfect time to have that side hustle! They say it takes 7 passive incomes going simultaneously to become a millionaire. If you have a Poshmark, Etsy, eBay, time to go through your home and sell any UNWANTED items.This also helps with decluttering which inadvertently helps us stay focused on our workload.


"Working from home means you inevitably get distracted easily. However, we have to remain disciplined."

Minimize distractions

I think this is the most important on the list. Deal with distractions well! Working from home means you inevitably get distracted easily. However, we have to remain disciplined. I just pretend I am behind a desk at a 9-5 which means no binge watching Netflix or television series. Yes, this includes my favorite “The office”. Keeping yourself disciplined allows you to get more productive over time.
