Technology has made it increasingly efficient to telecommute in a variety of industries. The challenge becomes motivating yourself to jump out of your workout gear and get ready for the day when the only person you are most likely to see is the one in the mirror!

- Do get up and ready. Start the morning off by running a brush through your hair and waving the mascara wand and blush brush across your clean face. You will feel better knowing you have readied yourself for the day, which potentially includes unforeseen visits, outings to the store, or various appointments. Dr. Karen Pine, professor of psychology at the University of Hertfordshire, states that dressing too casual can affect your mood, leaving you less focused and alert.
