Home office? Tidy up and dress properly

Right now I am running a company out of my bedroom. Working from home makes it very difficult to stay focused because you always have the possibility to have a snack, prepare a coffee, disrupt your workflow with some homework. In the recent weeks, I sometimes struggled to concentrate and focus on a task and I found a ridiculous reason for that.

Previously I worked at my desk in my sweatpants and a large t-shirt. My room is usually pretty dirty and slightly messy. One day I decided to tidy up the entire room and dress properly before I started working. I dressed as if I would leave for a real office and I cleaned my room like a maid would’ve cleaned an office.

The result was that I worked for focussed, I concentrated on the tasks, and I was able to get more stuff done.

If you are working out of your home as well I suggest you throw your sweatpants away and clean your room before you start working. It worked for me and it might work for you.

It seems as if Karl Lagerfeld was right when he said: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.”

Tell me your results when you have tried and implemented it as a habit!
