If you are a remote worker, and a freelancer. You may have found yourself struggling with finding the perfect routine that works for you. This is not a post that will lay out the magic ingredients for a healthy work life balance and the meaning of life. After almost 8 years of freelancing I still struggle with getting in a routine!
I have found as a developer my most productive hours start after 2 am. When there is no noise or distraction, which is a price for working from home, that is not always mentioned as a side note, with the 'Work from Home' label. If you do not have an isolated workplace at home, then probably like me you struggle for privacy during the day and try your best to concentrate in a client's meeting with all the background noise.
Human body is not meant to be awake late night, catching up on sleep in the day does not mean a good night's sleep. It takes toll. After trying numerous times to start a morning routine, I have still fallen back to a night routine. Which makes me curious to know about other work from home freelancers like myself, who have young kids at home, What works for you and what doesn't. What does routine really mean for you? Please post in comments your tips, thoughts.
