While these last couple of years have made WFH a huge part of pretty much everyone’s vocabulary, it’s not new for me! As an entrepreneur, I’ve been working from home for a looooong time… and I love it.
I especially love my home office.
And, as someone who has worked from home for a long time, the space I work in is SO important to me — and I’ve really realized that the space I sit in each day is a huge determinant of the mental space and productive space that I sit in, too. I used my Business & Interior Design majors to cultivate a space I am obsessed with (and proud of), and wanted to show it off to you today!
Here’s a sneak peek inside of the System Envy HQ over at my home:
And here is the before and after!
Plus, I have to say — the office wouldn’t be an office if I couldn’t actually, well, work from it.
These are the WFH tips I swear by each and every day:
- I get dressed every day. I drop my kids off at school, come straight home to make my bed and get ready, and then sit down at my desk. If I don’t do this, it’ll be 2 pm before I know it, and I’ll still be in my PJs.
- I love a timer challenge. I’m a huge fan of the Focus Keeper app, which keeps me on task and productive. Plus, it helps me see how much time something is actually taking me, too.
- I will allllways take breaks. I don’t ever want to get to the end of the day and realize I haven’t moved for 8 hours, so I’m super intentional about breaks. I’m a big fan of sitting in the sun, so I love to sit outside for 15-20 minutes if it’s sunny outside — and I also will use my Mirror for a 15-minute yoga session if I feel overwhelmed or like I’ve been staring at my screen for hours.
- I’m pretty intentional about work hours. While I’ll sometimes need to check in later in the evening, I really try to end work at around 4 pm every day so I can pick up my kids from school and embrace the mama time while I still can!
There you have it — my favorite ways to spend my days in this cozy home office of mine, AKA one of my favorite places… ever. Now, I just need to figure out how I can have a home office in Rome, Mykonos, and the Bahamas.
Someone let me know if they’ve figured this out yet.
