We’ve partnered with Natural Vitality CALM® on ways to help you reclaim a sense of normalcy while working from home.

Going from commuting into work every morning to suddenly staying at home all day, every day, can feel like your entire world has been flipped upside down. When working from home, it's easy to become distracted, disconnected, and even lose track of time. You may find yourself especially restless or unmotivated. Not to mention, it's easy to feel like it doesn't matter if you stay up late binging TV shows when you don't have anywhere to be. But be warned — that's a quick way to slide into unhealthy habits!

If you're new to the whole work-from-home thing — or aren't used to doing it so consistently — the first thing you need to establish is a routine. Maintaining a sense of normalcy is imperative for you to feel not only productive, but also like yourself. Set a schedule that's as close to your regular routine as possible, give yourself structure, and don't forget to work in simple things you enjoy.

From prioritizing your tasks to relaxing your mind, ahead, find tips to help you inject some organization — and calm — into your work-from-home life. Before you know it, you'll be a pro!
