My favorite thing about the new way I work now that I am freelancing again is my morning work schedule. I've transitioned from a night owl (though I still like to stay up late) to an early bird, and discovered the power and joy of it. I'm up by seven, have a bite of breakfast and a small coffee, and immediately start working (without checking email or social media) for three quiet all-by-myself hours. It's amazing the amount of work I get accomplished in those first 3 hours. I take a break at 10 to get myself ready for the day and try to get in 2 more hours before I break for lunch. Usually the momentum keeps me going in the afternoon, too, but even if I go run errands after lunch and don't feel like getting my nose back to the grindstone, I've already put in at least 5 very productive hours of work and that makes the rest of my day feel great!
Working from home can be a dream. I usually don’t have to worry about scraping the ice off my car windows in the mornings to get to work, I can stay inside where it’s warm and cozy, and plan my errands for the afternoon when the sun is shining and people aren’t rushing to get to work. I spend most of my day working in my living room, with natural light coming in the windows and sometimes the television playing in the background, but I like to move around. I can pick up and set up in the spare bedroom, which has an even cozier feel, where my workspace consists of a bed with a homemade quilt on top. Or I can take things out to the shop. There’s a sweet leather couch out there the color of butter, as well as a desk and my iMac. Oh, and usually my husband.
But the best thing is when I slip some files into a bag, grab my laptop or my iPad, a notebook or two, and take my workspace to town. My favorite places to set up and work are coffee shops, sandwich shops, and my favorite local bookstore, bookish.
I make sure to get myself up and out at least once a week. Tomorrow will be the day, I think. I won’t make my mind up where to until I’m all set to go.
