Now that your usual work routine is upended and you are trying to create a new one, start by scheduling the breaks. At what times do you usually have your morning coffee, lunch break and training session? Plan those first and guard them as if you just found a lost lick of a Hendrix.
The upside of working from home is not having to deal with the commute. It’s a daily thrill not needing to sit behind that one tradie who hasn’t showered since the invention of bread. But it’s not all unicorns farting rainbows.
The now missing commute was time spent on switching from work to home brain so we could be fully present by the time we got to the front door of our home.
Set boundaries. Have a separate space devoted only for work. It doesn’t have to be a spare room either. You can corner off a part of any room and make it into your office. Leave your laptop there. Even phone if possible. Walking into there is your commute. Walk out of that space and you are no longer working. You are at home.
