Are you a freelancer working from home? Well, congratulations on being your own boss! You are completely free to choose your own working hours, ethics, clients, workload, and even your office space.
How amazing is that?
Yet, these benefits come along with many responsibilities and challenges as well. We don’t mean to scare you. Instead, we are here to share with you the best 3 productivity tips for welcoming self-motivation into your freelance work life at home.
Stay with us!
Productivity Habit 1: Get to Work On-time
Even though your work is at your own house, you still need to be on time. Get up early and get on it. Starting your work late can slowly become a habit for you, and you don’t want that.
It will reduce your productivity, proactivity, and ability to take your work seriously. Waking up early is actually correlated with high levels of success according to several studies. And when it comes to staying organized and on top of your tasks, consider using product planning software to streamline your workflow efficiently.
So, let’s just skip that snooze button, OK?
Productivity Habit 2: Spice Up Your Work Space
Your workspace is where you spend most of your time during the day. Why not make it an inspiring one? Open the curtains and let the light come inside first. Decorate it with whatever inspires you the most. Maybe, for someone, it is a beautiful vase of flowers, and for another one, it is an acoustic guitar right in the corner of the room.

Productivity Habit 3: Look Nice
Go ahead and take a shower, brush your teeth, do your hair, and maybe put on some make-up? Working from home doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat yourself and look nice. Put on nice and comfy clothes.
No pajamas! According to Dr. Karen Pine, a psychology professor, “When we put on an item of clothing, it is common for the wearer to adopt the characteristics associated with that garment.”
With pajamas or without, having a flower vase or a glass of wine at your work desk – doesn’t matter.
We urge you to search and find what exactly motivates you most. Already found it? Then go ahead, and enjoy freelancing!
