Sometimes it’s really hard to rule your day when you are working at home. I know that problem. The main thing is to start your day properly.

Make a plan for the next day before going to sleep. You will get up much easier when you exactly know what you will do today.

Step 1

Wake up and go to bed at the same time every day

The first and most important step is to set your sleeping schedule. You will feel much better.

Try to wake up before 6:00 am. It could raise your efficiency a lot. But waking up too early isn’t for everyone.

Step 2


The next step is to drink a glass of fresh water. It will help your body to start all processes and awake faster.

Drink 6-8 glasses of water every day. At the start, It’s could be hard to drink a lot. But it’s like a habit. You will feel better in 2-4 days.

Don’t count tea, coffee, beer, juice and other beverages. Count only water glasses.

Step 3


Another step to awake faster is work-out. You can do simple morning exercises, go running, or do yoga.

15 minutes will be enough to make you feel the energy.

Sometimes it doesn’t help for the first 2-4 days. But continue doing it and you will see the result soon.

Step 4

10 minutes silence Think about your day

How it should pass. What should happen and how it should happen.

When you think about it your brain understands your plan and it will be much easier to concentrate on work.

You can just sit alone or meditate if you can. The most important part is to understand what you will do this day.

Step 5

Read a book

Now your brain is ready to work. Give him the first task – read a book. Read as much as you can

Even 10 pages will be very good.
Read books which you are interested in. It could be anything. Design, science, novel or anything else.


Try different combinations

Try to change steps if this algorithm doesn’t fit you. It’s okay if you will start with a book or with a running session.
