working from home

Working from Home Routine

I have been working from home for over a year now, however, during that time, I’ve moved from having a home office in Middletown, to a quasi home office (actually a folding table in a kitchen) in an apartment in Bear to now an office in our “Forever Home” in Smyrna.

Moving and adjusting to a new home with new office space can be chaotic but I am finally able to maintain a working from home routine that fits my lifestyle and works best for me.

Working From Home Routine

Working From Home Routine

  • Get up and get dressed – I don’t work in my jammies so even if I am not meeting with clients I get dressed, put on makeup and do my hair.
  • Read Bible Scriptures, pray and write in Gratitude Journal – Although I am a Social Media Manager/Strategist I never start my day on social, instead I start with scriptures to arm myself for what’s to come.
  • Drink glass of lemon water – drinking lemon water jump starts my digestive system and keeps my insides cleansed.
  • Coffee and breakfast – I used to skip breakfast when I worked a 9-5, but now I am able to enjoy a small breakfast that not only fuels my body but also my brain.
  • Take mid-day break – After reading and answering emails; checking my client’s social media platforms and responding I need to get up and take a break so I’ll walk out of my office for a change of scenery.
  • Eat lunch – While out and about, I will make a small salad or bowl of soup with a glass of water before getting back to work.
  • Exercise – I try to end my day between 6 and 7 pm, so that I can change into fitness gear and ride the Stationary Bike for 60 minutes.
  • “Clock Out” and spend time with family.

  1. You look Fantastic in your home office. You are really good at routines. Not me. I hate to admit that some days I do not get dressed and only go to the mailbox at my front door. But, I cannot stay home for more than one day at a time else I get cabin fever. Happy New Decade Sis!

  2. I definitely have a routine. I also get dressed (although no makeup), have tea, go out for lunch and have a definite time to shut down and walk away from it. I could never work in my pajamas. I don’t knock those who do, but I like to be dressed and ready to go out for lunch, open the door for deliveries, etc. Having a set routine and being dressed is definitely more productive for me!

    1. Yes, that sounds like a great routine as well. I must admit that although I don’t wear jammies I do sometimes wear jeggings and a tshirt.

      Thank you for stopping by to share your routine.

  3. Thank you for hosting!x
    I hope you are enjoying your new office in your new home! I am absolutely loving your routine – you actually factor in clocking off time, something I need to start doing! I don’t have a set routine as such, nothing ever works out to plan for me in that respect but with my blogging goals this year, I am trying to nominate set days for certain aspects. Go you with the hour on the bike though – I tend to manage 10 minutes before I am fed up!
    Hope you are having a lovely weekend! Sim x #TrafficJam

    1. I’m so glad that you’re having fun here over at the Traffic Jam Weekend party and I look forward to seeing you each and every week.

      I have found that I needed to create a routine otherwise I would be working too long and too hard which is very unhealthy.

      I ride slowly not a Peloton stride so that I can last the full 60 minutes.
