Thirteen Tips For Working at Home

Tip 1: Turn commute time into gym time

Turn commute time into home gym time. Suddenly, this makes traffic jams feel not so bad at all.

Tip 2: Put the music on

Put the music on. Loud. And maybe, just maybe, pull off a little

Tip 3: Adjust the seat and settings

Make sure your chair provides the right support and your monitor is at the right height.

Tip 4: Work from the couch

It is no crime to work from the couch every now and then.

Tip 5:Be rigorous with your schedule

Let go of the 9-to-5 but be rigorous with your schedule; your monkey brain will thank you for it.

Tip 6: Be less efficient with the coffee run

Be less efficient. For most, home is smaller than the office. Grab only one drink on your coffee run.

Tip 7: Smoke a cigar behind your desk

Coffee is so pre-WFH. Smoke a cigar. Behind your desk. Go on, indulge yourself.

Tip 8: Get into the state of flow

Use flow to increase your effectiveness. Lose all distractions and go deep on your backlog!

Tip 9: Go out and play

Cherish the extra family time. Once the labor is out of the way, go all out and play.

Tip 10: Make lunch work for you

Make lunch work for you! Boil 2 eggs, add Udon noodles and cooked veggies. Top off with some nori sushi. Yum!

Tip 11: Eat lunch outside

Keep your house tidy. Eat lunch outside.

Tip 12: Reward yourself

Work hard, eat healthy. On top of this, take a moment each day to reward yourself for accomplishments.

Tip 13: Reset the brain

Take regular breaks away from the screen. A little car ride can help to reset the brain.

Bonus tip: Laugh more often

Humor heals. Instead of using SnapCam, dress up for real in a meeting.
