Got into a good routine yet?

How’s it going, this working from home lark? Got into a good routine yet? Or are you still struggling with it? Lockdown has eased somewhat, many of us have now been able to see families, even if from a social distance. You might even have got out to a pub or restaurant by now.

But if you’re one of more than one and half million people who normally work from home, how are you getting on? Or one of the millions more who found themselves working from home for the first time in March onwards?   Have things settled into a routine, or are you struggling to keep on top of everything? Have you fallen into bad habits that you wish you could change, but somehow, each day seems as unproductive as the last?

When the negative committee takes up residence

Have the negative committee taken up residence in your head? Are they constantly there, with their nagging voices, telling you that you’ll never manage to get yourself organised, you’ll never be disciplined enough, you’ll never manage to motivate yourself?

We’ve all come across them; the negative committee with their voices that keep getting in the way. No matter how much we say we’re not going to listen to them, we still somehow get to the end of the day feeling we’ve been busy doing nothing, we’ve worked the whole day through, but got nothing to show for it.

Wish you knew how to silence them? It is possible, and in this free eBook I show you how good routines and habits can help you to shut them up.

One of the biggest challenges I found when I first started working from home was to get into a good routine. What should I do first? I wasn’t going out, so maybe I didn’t need to shower first thing. Should I exercise? Have a leisurely breakfast, maybe catch up on some reading? Should I get started on writing, or maybe I should post on social media? (No, not social media. Even if you think it’s work, you’ll fall down the rabbit hole.)

Routine and habits

I rebelled against routine – I’d done that for years in paid employment. Maybe I needed better habits? What’s the difference between routine and habits? How do they help? Do they help?

In this ebook I answer these questions and more. I tell you about Sally, who works in a job she loves, but still found bad routines and habits led her into wasting time and feeling bad about it, and unable to work effectively from home. I show you how she got a grip and turned these bad routines into good ones, and how you can too.
