Overcoming Work at Home Isolation

BlogHer Original Post

Working from home is great (at least in my opinion). Yet, it can be so easy to end up feeling isolated, alone, and in a bit of a funk and not know why. That's because you don't have nearly the sort of in-person interaction you do when you are out in the workplace. Here's a great post on how to beat that Work-at-Home (Mom) isolation.

Recently I found myself in a bit of a funk. I was feeling blue and disconnected. It suddenly occurred to me that it had been nearly two weeks since I had left the house. Two weeks! Since I work from home, this is a big no-no. To feel reenergized and inspired I have to have a change of scenery on a regular basis. And I’m not alone.

One of the major drawbacks for women who work from home is the feeling of being isolated from the rest of the world.
