How Do You Deal With Work At Home Stress?
How do you deal with work at home stress? Working from home is marvelous, especially when you don’t have to clear snow off your car in the mornings when the temperate is freezing and the fact that you have a lot of freedom. However that depends on how structured you are and if you manage your time effectively or not. Work at home stress is real and can lead to serious burn-out if you don’t make some adjustments.
If you’re new to telecommuting or working from home this may apply to you more, especially if you’re coming from a work environment where you were surrounded by coworkers. You’ll find that your home office will start to close in on you very fast and your ‘home’ will start to feel like a dungeon or trap. That’s completely natural and we’ve all been there. You’ll have to find some sort distraction to get you away from that home office, even if for just a couple hrs.
For me, the summer months means enjoying the outdoors and gardening. And during the winter months I usually take my work with me to the local cafes and coffee houses. Most of them are equipped with wifi, so it allows me to work in an environment other than my home office. Now that can be both good and bad, as you still need to do things which will disconnect you from the ‘work’ mentality.
Here’s an excerpt from an article I recently read on the subject..
Sometimes getting out of the house requires a more forceful tactic. In this case, try scheduling a day to try something new. Take a look at your weekly schedule and see where you might have some long stints of nothing to do. Schedule in a day where you hit up a new restaurant or meet up with friends for a new activity. It might sound like overkill, but the truth is if you’re given the option to stay in and enjoy the luxuries of home for free or go out and spend a little money, you’re probably more likely to choose the money saving method.
That’s totally okay on most days, but if you schedule in at least one day a week to go do something a little different, you’ll simultaneously keep yourself from falling into a rut and get out of the house. If you’re feeling especially introverted, it’s a good idea to ride the coattails of an extrovert friend while you’re at it because they’ll probably force you out whether you like it or not.
Whatever you do, make it fun and do make sure it’s outside your home.
