Body Clock Blues: Beating Them through Time Management

One of the best things about working from home is that you can adapt your work routine to your body clock. While we understand that telecommuters often must be at a desk during the business hours of their in-office counterparts, home office entrepreneurs gain a degree of flexibility.

Respecting your internal body clock means not taking a lunch hour at noon because the rest of the world is taking a lunch hour at noon. Some days you may be hungry for lunch at 11:00 A.M. Some days at 3:00 P.M. Body clock means freedom to powernap and freedom to take a time-out at 2:30 P.M. to greet the kids as they walk through the door after school and then not return to the home office until 7:00 P.M. It can mean the freedom to work out when the gym is less crowded, to take a break to do yoga, or hit the golf course. It can mean taking off a half-day every Monday to do volunteer work or pursue a hobby or dream, or hitting the tennis court each Wednesday with your old college roommate, and then working an hour extra each of the other weekdays.
