Working from home

Lately I've been thinking a lot about my work. I started this long process at the end of January, when I wasn't satisfied with what I was doing and I was losing perspective. So I started something new and I was so happy and excited about it, (if you want to know more about this, you can read here), I still am happy about it. Then some months went by and now I'm working again on my knit shop; I can't help it; I can't live without knitting and crochetting! So it was time to sit at my desk, to surround myself with pens, paper, markers and to start to do some planning. Working from home is great, but sometimes I need to give myself some rules, otherwise I tend to lose track of the things I have to do. First of all: never work in my pajamas or similar clothes. I need a sort of uniform, something comfy, but if I have to go out for some errands, I can do it. For exemple, now I'm wearing leggings, a loose tunic and a chunky sweater. One essential thing for me to have in my home studio is water. I know myself and if I don't have it near me, I will not drink enough water during the day. The serious planning I did was about my work, what I really want to achieve with it and what I want to do with my blog. Also, I need to use some social networks for my work, but sometimes it can be overwhelming, so I wrote down a kind of schedule for it. I know that many people are much more organized than me without writing anything down, but after years of working from home, I learnt two or three things about how I can manage my time. I know that maybe in this post I didn't say anything useful to you, I think I needed it more for myself, to mark a precise day in this year full of changes, planning and work on myself. But if you are interested in reading more about this kind of arguments, let me know and I will be happy to do it, maybe with some more organization.
