I feel like I’m starting to develop a daily routine that works for me, and I’m so dang excited about it! (is that weird? Probably…) I’ve been asked a surprising number of times what a typical day in my life looks like, so today I’m going to share that with y’all!
7 to 8 : Wake up (yep, I get to sleep in!) and get dressed for the day. I’m slowly working on waking up earlier because I truly love mornings, but I’m struggling with the going to bed early part!
8 to 9ish : Breakfast, aka my favorite meal of the day. It typically includes a bagel, and always includes coffee. During breakfast I read articles (Fast Company is my favorite) and blog posts, and catch up on social media of course!
9 to 11 : emails, inquiries, and start on that day’s priority project! I always refer to my Simplified Planner for that day’s list of tasks and priorities. On Sunday evenings, I run through my list of clients and schedule everything out to make sure every project gets enough attention (and gets finished!)
11 to 1 : design work, lunch (at my desk….), more design work.
1 to 3 : client calls, meetings, and consultations! I like to have calls in the middle of the day, it’s so fun chatting with my clients!
3 to 5/6 : design work! This time of day my brain is in get shi*t done mode so I tend to power through projects a lot faster than the mornings!
6 : dinner and drinks! In my eyes, a good business owner understands the importance of coffee and the creative power of tequila! *wink*
evening : I am incredibly guilty of working after hours… probably six out of seven nights a week. I love what I do, so it’s really freaking hard to stay away. If I can’t distract myself, I’ll often write emails and then schedule them to send the next day during office hours.
And there you have it, my super exciting daily routine! Nothing special, but I feel pretty lucky to have a routine that keeps me motivated and energetic day after day. If you’re looking for some work-from-home-tips, you should check out my top 10!
Happy Monday, y’all! Time to kick this week’s booty!
