With the pandemic process, we started to do many things from home. With the closure of schools first, and then the transition to work from home, we call the new normal started. It may not be easy to carry out the work you efficiently do in the office from home in some cases. Mornings with friends, long trips, or a cup of coffee you drink at work every morning. All of this has been replaced by moments when you hardly persuade yourself to get out of bed and sit in your computer in pajamas, right? Well, under these conditions, can you work as efficiently as before? If you cannot answer this question as "yes," you can increase your work motivation thanks to some changes you will make in your home environment and daily routines.
1.Keep Your Living Space Tidy
The common point of workplaces is that they are always organized. For us, every day, someone cleans the work areas. Generally, however, no one else tends your home. That's why you need to get rid of the mess of the house you live in every morning as you start your day. When you wake up, you can tidy up your bed first thing. The pleasure of doing something at the beginning of the day can motivate you. Then you can get rid of your hangover dishes. This way, your kitchen is ready for an excellent breakfast. Simultaneously, a clean and tidy home can give you a workplace atmosphere and motivate you to work regularly.
2. Make Your Daily Nutrition Routine
Eating habits are among the most critical factors affecting your mood during the day. Little tips such as not eating fatty foods and not eating carbohydrates all the time make you feel more energetic at home. For example, having breakfast before starting work in the morning helps you to have a clearer mind. It would be best if you also were careful about the packaged foods you consume during the day. Since staying at home frequently brings immobility, the nutrition routine becomes more important than you think.
3. Make Daily Plans
When you wake up in the morning, you may be wasting a lot of time thinking about what to do. Sometimes thinking too long about your work makes you perceive them as more complicated than they are. Planning everything you will do the next day before going to bed and seeing it all at once can increase your motivation. When planning your work, it is also essential to make the right order. With the correct order, you can get things done efficiently. Crossing the list for a job you've completed will motivate you to take the next step. So don't forget to plan your day before going to bed at night.
4. Get Rid of Pajamas
When you are not working from home, you will be prepared for a long time to go out. When you wake up in the morning, you take a shower, put on makeup, and put on clothes you feel good about. Then you set off to go to work. You can skip all these steps and get to work in pajamas, thinking that no one sees you when you are at home. However, when you do not get rid of your pajamas, you will continue your day with your idle state. After waking up in the morning and having breakfast, you should change your clothes. You can start your business with clothes that make you feel right by getting ready as if you were going out. Thus, you can work more motivated by feeling like you are at work, not at home.
5. Organize Your Workspace
Working areas become very important when you work from home. That's why you need to be careful about the work area. For example, working at a clean and uncluttered desk every day can be an essential motivation source. If your table's place does not make you happy, you can move it to different areas. Changing your scenery can make you more willing to work. Small touches such as putting things you like seeing on your desk at work at home can also motivate you.
6. Move More
During the quarantine process, we stayed at home, and we could not take long walks. It was not possible to run around as much as before. That's why we are less mobile than before. This situation may have caused your energy to drop. You can reduce the effects of this by adding 10-15 minutes of exercise to your daily routine each day. You can feel more energetic thanks to the short time you allocate to exercise during the day. When your energy is high, you can complete your work in a more motivating way.
7. Establish a Rewarding Mechanism
When you were working from work, you used to dream of going home in the evening. A nice dinner at home could motivate you all day long. However, you wouldn't imagine such a thing when working from home. So you can create a different rewarding mechanism. You can make a reward for the evening, like promising yourself a nice drink, watching a good movie, or attending an online event. The desire to achieve your much-desired evening reward helps you better motivate your work.
