Working from home is wonderful because you have so much freedom and flexibility. But freedom and flexibility are sometimes a bad thing when it comes to productivity… I’ve found that the best way to stay focused working from home is to set up a routine for myself! So here’s a look at that remote working routine ๐Ÿ™‚

If you work from home, does your day look similar to mine? Well me about it in the comments!

I work from home as well but I am a night person, waking up early has never been my thing. I am lucky that I am able to wake up at 11:00 or so, but I will work on and off until 3 or 4 in the morning.

I'm watching also with maroon colored jogging pants ๐Ÿ™‚

I would find it really helpful as a 18 year old student if you could make a video running through your whole experience with graphic design from the first time you was interested to college to uni to finding your first job

Big DramaShow says:

When I work from home, I'm most productive during the times when the sun is not out, basically late at night to very early morning. There's something about the sun being out (or even just knowing it's out) that makes me very unproductive.

Are you not using your macbook 12" anymore? Why?

Kat Crawford says:

The routine I wish I followed:

5:306:30 – coffee & me time
6:307:00 – exercise
7:008:00 – breakfast & shower
8:0010:00 – work
10:3012:00 – work
1:005:00 – work

What usually happens:

7:30 – wake up
7:3010:30 – coffee and youtube black hole
10:30 – Oh shit I'm starving
11:00 – more coffee
11:305:00 work
5:00 – starving
1:00am – where did the evening go and why I am on youtube again?

Kirill Titov says:

In the morning I work from home for a couple hours and after go to a local co-working space.

Ian Callaghan says:

Thanks for posting, love your videos. What do you think about co-working spaces?

CarolynGomes says:

I work from home, but I have a set schedule, hours to work, and it can be a real challenge to stay focused for so many hours at a time, I hope to someday have this kind of freedom. I am just starting out on my journey to becoming a designer/developer at 28, here goes nothing!

Lee Leplaw Deichmann says:

I work for a small web agency and although we're all pretty close to one another we work remotely to keep costs down. I also have 2 small kids that have to get to pre-school every day so my day starts at 5:30. I drop the kids off and am back home by 8:30 to start work. Then I work pretty solidly from 8:303:00pm – might have a lunch break whenever I get hungry, and then it's straight back up to pick up the kids and start doing the family thing again.

It's hectic. But still love working from home!

Elaine Cochran says:

great video, charli! loved the stop motion.

feliciashane says:

Hi! Iโ€™m new to your channel and just wondering if you have any tips for college students how to start building work connections in college days, so that once we graduate itโ€™ll be easier for us to find jobs etc! Thanks your videos are amazing and so helpful๐Ÿ’•

Hugo Pineda says:

I get distracted by your channel lol … Ok, really I have a similar situation but I prefer to switch between home (Mon, Wed, Fri) and a cowork space (Tue, Thu) instead of commuting. That way I don't lose time and I don't get bored by the same routine every day. I go to the gym after work.

Smart Sandy says:

Before getting to my routine i would like to have remote job first ๐Ÿ™‚

Abdul Glover says:

Lauren Fairweather says:
