4 Ways to Keep You Engaged and Motivated as a Freelancer

Working from home is almost everyone’s dream— technology makes it happen. Nevertheless, a recent article, 7 Ways You Can Design Your Home Office for Maximum Productivity by Daniel Schwarz says that working from home is not always fun and productive.  It can take years before you can establish a home office design that suits you best.

Here are some tips to make your home office a fun and productive one.

  1. Never work in your comfort zone.

You should never work in your comfort zone because it can lead to relaxation and procrastination. Remember, the common space is for socializing, the kitchen is for eating, the bedroom is for sleeping, and so the office is for working. Therefore, you need to establish those boundaries early on, choose and create a workspace where you can focus on your job as if you’re working in an office space Ballantyne.

  1. Designate a special workspace.

The best way to improve productivity when working from home is to make your office a special place you really want to be at. Designing a small office space Ballantyne style can be challenging, be creative about your set-up, have fun with it but keep it professional.  You can go greener by putting some ornamental plants to brighten your office and use ergonomic desk chair and other necessary office equipment. 

  1. Set boundaries and work hours.

Set rules and working hours that should be respected and observed.  When you’re in your workspace, it means you cannot be disturbed.  Treat working hours as if you were at work and not around.

  1. Go out once in awhile and have fun.

From time to time go out and mingle with other people, keep your social skills, develop your mental alertness and enjoy life with loved ones. It will make you feel refreshed and motivated.


Working from home entails discipline and creativity to succeed.  Nevertheless, if you feel bored working alone sometimes and need to meet a client, YourOffice-Charlotte, NC-Ballantyne offers you a wide choice of office and workspace solutions: single or multiple offices, team/conferencing/meeting spaces and virtual office packages.
