    Very useful post! We all need this especially in these challenging days. Thanks for sharing

  2. I think I commit about half of these every single day since I started working from home given I work from the couch in pajamas and spread my work day out to all kinds of hours when it feels convenient.

    1. Haha I think I do too! Certainly no way to work from home perfectly long term.

    Great post! I like to always stick to my morning routine and rarely sleep in. I don’t have a dedicated work space though because we literally don’t have the room in my house but I’m getting an office built this year, finally!

    1. Thanks, Jenny! Super excited for your new home office!

  4. I’ve been working from home for years and always eat at my desk…oops x

    1. Aha same here! I don’t think anyone works from home perfectly – at least not long term!

  5. Well I don’t work from home, but I’m always eating at my desk in work. Thankfully I’ve never worn my pyjamas there.

    1. Haha thank goodness! It is nice to step away from the desk for lunch though – makes it feel like a real break.

  6. I was rolling out of bed to my desk and neglecting my skincare for sure xx

    1. Ah yes, I do that way too often!

  7. Awesome article & being a work from home person for years, committed all of these multiple times! We need an Ellie to force more walks/breaks 😀

    1. Thanks so much, Cindi! Haha Ellie does come in handy 🙂

  8. Ah I’m so bad at just staying in my pyjamas when working from home! I do feel so much more productive when I get dressed for the day though and I always end up getting more done that way xx

    1. The only reason I get out of my pajamas is because I have to walk my dog!

        This is such a helpful post. I’m never very productive if I haven’t done my morning routine.

        1. It does help to start the day right! Thanks, Kelly!

  9. I have to avoid batch working, my brain can’t handle doing the same task for too long when it comes to tedious bits like schedule. I usually break my day into 1-2 hour blocks otherwise I feel like I’m making no progress. I’m definitely guilty of not keeping strict hours too. I’m forever ‘just finishing this off’ at midnight…x


    1. Fair enough! I think the batch working is effective up to a point, but can definitely get monotonous. Aha yes, I’ve definitely answered some work emails way too late at night!

  10. Great tips! I really have to take more breaks.

    1. Thanks! My problem these days is one break turns into not working for the rest of the day!

    Thanks for the great list and I learnt a new word ‘batching’. Totally guilty of a few if these on the list, but I’ve learnt to be kind to myself. After 3 months of full lockdown the beginning was tough but I’ve embraced the new normal.

    1. Thanks, Kaylini! Glad you’re making this new normal work.
