I hear you…it’s tricky, distracting, lonely, overwhelming and frustrating sometimes to be working from home. Even more so if you have littles around and you are also playing the role of educator. Here are a few tips I’ve been sharing in my practice to help you optimize your time working from home.
Set up some habits in your day that are consistent, and as best as possible, stick to them. What is the best time for you to work? When do you need to help your children’s learning? What type of daily structure and schedule will support you? Instead of free-flowing everyday perhaps defining your tasks a little more concretely will help.
Find a Commute Alternative
Where can you recreate the time you may have had in your car driving to work? What if you used that time to go for a walk instead? Or found some way to give yourself the gift of that time?
Move your body!
Sitting all day is not good for your body or mind, but neither is standing! Break up your day and postural habits with breaks! Even if it’s just a few minutes, your body will thank you.
