As most of you know already, I’m a full-time blogger who works from home. I love being able to be my own boss and to set my own schedule but one of the best perks of working for myself is being able to work from the comfort of my own home.
While working from home is seriously awesome, it can also be tough! How so? Well, sometimes I’m tempted to just relax and do nothing all day instead of working. It’s easy for me to stay in my comfy clothes and to play with my cat but that’s not what’s going to get the job done. Ever since I started working from home, distractions and focus have always been a bit of a struggle for me. Over the summer, I really started to hammer down on both so that I can work better and really, live better.
I have shared before about some of my top tips for staying healthy while working from home and today is going to be a bit of a follow-up post to that.

HOW I STAY FOCUSED THROUGHOUT THE DAY:
OttLite Wellness Series™ Desk Lamps // I am so excited to be partnering with OttLite once again. Ever since working OttLite this past spring, I have become a HUGE fan of their Wellness Series desk lamps. I have their Revive LED Desk Lamp on my desk in my home office and it’s been such a help to me ever since I got it.
The OttLite Wellness Series is all about improving your eye health. Since 3 out of 4 Americans suffer daily from eyestrain, it inspired OttLite to create a line with eye health in mind. Even though so many Americans struggle with eyestrain, most don’t even realize it may be due to the lighting in their surroundings. The OttLite Wellness Series provides the closest thing to natural daylight available indoors. What’s even better? These have been proven to reduce eye fatigue by 51%!
Good light leads to good health.
I have personally noticed a huge difference in my eye health since first using an OttLite Wellness Series desk lamp. I have way fewer headaches throughout the day and at night when I’m working. Fewer headaches mean that I can focus all the more on the tasks at hand throughout the day.
I am so happy to have added another OttLite Wellness Series desk lamp to my home! I chose to add their Refine LED Desk Lamp to the sitting room in our home. The color I chose was Antique Brass but it is also available in Brushed Nickel. We’re still in the process of furnishing our sitting room but even with a long ways to go, I still spend a lot of my time in there throughout the day.
Keep To A Schedule // Since I have a ton of freedom from working from home, it’s important that I stick to a regular schedule. This helps me to stay focused and get done what I need to. When I’m out of schedule, it can be easy to give in to distractions and then my whole day can get thrown off. Having a firm but flexible schedule is huge for me.
Take Breaks // I’m a pretty hard worker and when I’m focused in on a task, it’s hard to pull me away from it. After every big task that I accomplish, whether it’s writing a blog post, editing 50+ photos, or even doing the laundry, I’ll take a break. Breaks help me to recharge so that I can come back to my work or task at hand with all of the focus in the world.
Set Intentional Goals // Tying into having a schedule, setting intentional goals and sticking to my to-do list for the day is essential for me. Instead of getting overwhelmed by looking at all of my tasks for the week in one day, I focus on one day at a time. Doing this helps me to hustle hard and work well. I’m huge on intentionality and choosing to focus on one day’s amount of tasks is the best way for me to continue to lead an intentional life.How I Stay Focused Throughout The Day Click To Tweet
