Happy Wednesday, my sweet ones. How has your week been going? Mine has been rather lovely thus far. :} Still crazy busy, but I think I'm finally going to figure out how to balance it all. Which, brings us to today's post. I've seen quite a few blogs that talk about the best ways to keep motivated & keep sane while working from home. Most of them make some sort of comment about how every day you need to get up, get dressed & look pretty just like you would do if you were going IN to work.
Which, I completely agree. But I've got something even better. A pretty, pretty robe! Now, I know it seems silly, but when I snagged this little beauty over at ModCloth's HUGE sale (for like $15!) I fell deeply in love. And since then, anytime I am sitting at home, working on things, I put it on. And it's become this "thinking cap" kind of thing. Just like when you put jammies on, you are letting your body & mind know it is time to sleep, here you are letting your body & mind know it is time to work. It really does help, hah.
So now, I feel more productive & definitely feel pretty, a lovely combo I'll say! But what about you guys? What do you do to help yourself get in the zone to work? Do you drink coffee or tea and listen to music? Do you sit in complete silence? Do you wear a certain item (or type of item)? How do you let your mind and body know that it is working time?
