    These are all wonderful solutions to the challenges you listed. I have worked from home off and on for years now, so you’re so right about the isolation. At least there’s the internet now, so that you can feel a little more connected than I did back in the 90s. I am planning to start back to working from home soon and I will be sure to take heed to your advice.

      I can’t imagine working from home without the internet! It definitely helps you feel more connected to the outside world. Thanks, Vox!

    I am putting on weight. To get into working mood and make use of my office wardrobe, I get dress sometimes as if I’m at work. It also helps to break the mood.

    Catherine,

    This post is SO GOOD! You hit the nail on the head for so many of these that I felt as if you were inside my head. One thing that has REALLY helped me is by getting my house/home/workout time stuff done FIRST and then doing work or whatever else I want to do. I joined a few local meetups like TuesdaysTogether by The Rising Tide and that’s been nice to meet other online/local business owners. Definitely pinning this one!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Lindsey

      Thanks, Lindsey! Meetup groups are amazing. Such a great way to meet like-minded people. I’m the opposite. I have to get my work done first and then personal stuff!

    WOW this is so helpful! I struggle so much with staying focused and being motivated to work…I already downloaded the Antisocial app–What an amazing idea! That’s my worst go-to distraction when I’m procrastinating from writing. Excellent post; thanks so much! 🙂

      Thanks, Jade! My worst distraction is Netflix! I wonder if there’s an app that can stop me from accessing that!
