Home office setups are very much a topic of interest here at unplggd. We have seen offices carved out of walk in closets and even offices that used to be closets. For the very small space dwellers out there, there have even been collapsible offices. With all these home offices, it got us thinking, do you have a home office ritual?
For some of us, blogging for unplggd is part time in addition to a full time gig, but there are also some of us, and we assume many of you, who are working from your carefully planned home office spaces Monday to Friday, 9 to 5. When we head out to work every day the routine is clear. Hop in the shower, dress, quick breakfast, hop in the car. When we get to the office, it becomes grab a coffee, check email and figure out what's going on for the rest of the day.
The act of leaving the house makes for a very clear transition and mental shift to working. On occasion, we have found ourselves spending the day working at home, and while the change in environment is nice every once in a while, breaking free from the distractions of home and mentally changing gears is definitely a bit more difficult.
So what do our work at home unplggd readers do to shift into work mode? Go for a run in the morning? Change into a suit? Make sure you have your shoes on? Do tell in the comments.....
