How I Find Motivation (And Work From Home)…

How I Find Motivation (And Work From Home)…

When it comes to working from home, I’d like to think after just shy of six years (10 if you count when I started my blog), I’m a bit of a seasoned pro. Throw in a pandemic too, where paid work and projects became slightly fewer and farther between, when moods shifted substantially (and understandably) and you’ve got a gal in need of a serious kick out of bed in the morning- but, and here’s the but- I think I’ve done ok…

 The thing with finding motivation is that it looks different for everyone. My tips and advice might be so far off for somebody else, and things that work for me- might be somebody else’s idea of a disorganised mess or completely unsuited to a certain schedule or lifestyle- and that’s fine. One woman’s getting up at 7am for a power morning might be another’s 11am snooze-in, but if there’s one thing I know- it’s that listening to my body has become paramount for me in the last few months- and although I know sleep and mood based motivation doesn’t always kindly lend itself to a solid 9-5, sometimes knowing when to be more gentle with yourself (i.e working from the sofa if I know I have tasks that require less of me) and doing focused work bursts really help.

Understandably to do lists aren’t for everyone, but as a serial notebook and list lover, know they (along with a good bit of Laura Branigan) can help get me going too!
