Let’s talk about working at home. For some of us, it’s a big change. My dining room table is my office. My extra bed now sleeps piles of work files and office supplies. If Amazon knew that some of the things I ordered ARE essential to my organizational mental health, I might not have to wait a month to get them!
But this leads to my point. Working at home may have you feeling that you can’t get away from your work because it’s always staring you in the face – like from your dining room table.
Everyone needs time away from work – especially now. So set office hours for yourself. Turn off your alarms, notifications and your computer screen. Open for business only when it’s time. Keep your meditation and gym hours a normal part of your schedule – and if you don’t have time allotted for them, there’s no better time than now to start.
For those of you with a house full of kiddos, they need some structure too, no matter how old they are. If they are toddlers through elementary age, get creative and set up their own ‘office’ and have them go to work. Let them learn at a young age that work can be fun and full of things they love to do.
