Overcoming Work at Home Isolation
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.
