Create a Schedule For Yourself
People often ask me what my average day looks like, assuming that not having a desk job means I don't have any type of schedule. While I don't have a schedule imposed upon me by an employer, I’ve found that it's helpful to settle into a general ebb-and-flow of your day-to-day. Whether that means trying to wake up around the same time, working the same chunk of hours, or heading to a coffee shop every morning, find something that feels comfortable and work it into your routine. While this may sound counterintuitive, it will feel comfortable rather than stifling, since it's both self-imposed and flexible. Your job isn't at risk if you oversleep or change things up, but maintaining even a loose sense of stability will help you stay on track.
