Do you work at home? If so, you’re probably familiar with most of the pitfalls that come with the practice of doing your job in the same place you live, sleep, eat, and enjoy life. There’s an art to working from home, and long-time practitioners know that just a few little changes can make a huge difference. For instance, having a designated place to go to relax, besides the sofa, is of utmost importance.
When you have a special spot for de-stressing, decompressing, and basically shutting down the brain cells for a few minutes, the home-based career is much easier to tolerate. Likewise, ordering special services and products on a regular basis turns the home office into a more exciting space where you can kick back and enjoy a nice meal, munch on delivered snacks, and generally enjoy the home-based lifestyle. Here are some suggestions for making the most of being in the house for hours on end.
Create a Relaxation Room
Even if you don’t have a lot of extra space or a guest bedroom, consider creating a space where you can go to relax, nap, sleep, zone out, meditate, or just sit and do deep breathing exercises. A curtained off section of the basement or attic will do, as well as secluded spot in the garage, a spare bedroom, or an unused laundry room. For furnishings, all you need are a comfortable chair, something to put your feet up on, and a timer (in case you doze off amid all the deep relaxation).
Order Snack Boxes Delivered Monthly
Toiling away at the keyboard day after day can take a mental toll on even the most seasoned workers. When it’s time for a break, wouldn’t it be nice to have a snack box subscription that brings worldwide treats to your door on a regular basis? The good news is that you can easily sign up for a monthly snack box delivery online and start receiving some of the most delicious treats from dozens of nations and cultures. It’s a cost effective, super convenient way to chase away the home office blues.
Build an Outdoor Quiet Place
Take the indoor relaxation room idea and transport it outdoors. Fresh air can be a wonderful elixir for rejuvenating dulled brain cells after longish work sessions. For most people, a shaded, quiet area works best, and the more secluded the better. Sit on a cushy patio chair, stretch your legs, and sip a cool drink while your body regenerates its energy supply.
Have Lunch Delivered Once a Week
Find a nearby restaurant that serves and delivers lunch to private homes. Order a meal once a week or every other week to save you the time of having to prepare your own lunch and do dishes. Some people like to make their order out day on Wednesday, just to break up the traditional work week. Let’s face it, that middle day of the week is usually sort of blah anyway. You might soon be looking forward to Wednesdays. A tip is to find a few different restaurants and cycle through the selections to avoid repetition.
