    It really is a H of a Blessing!

    The thought of a cu cu cubicle stay calm breathe.
    The thought of Rush Hour Traffic!
    The thought of Office Politics! Germs, a tttttttt hold on settle down...a tie and starched collar!

    Compared to those things I do not mind I had to go search for Achieving Goals Hypnosis, Anti-Porn, Home Workouts, Bachelor Cooking Hacks, and Mouse Elbow.

    All Totally worth it.

      What do you find the hardest about WFH? Have you done this prior to covid or never worked from home before? All the best!

    To be frank this is not at all issue with me. Everyone is different so it might be a big issue for them. I have my sources of entertainment also I love playing games(every type of game), learning new languages etc. I wish I could say it affects me in any way but it doesn't. When I am outside I enjoy extreme sports so its not that I hate going outside or doing new things. But I think time has made me more adptable to situations and I find it way more easy to enjoy things outside or inside home.

    It's not hard at all if you have a plan for what you intend to accomplish each day. Make a list, check them off as you go. Reward yourself each time a task is completed - a half hour of video games, an ice cream cone, a half hour playing your guitar ... whatever floats your boat. Then, get onto the next task.

    Working at home gives you the flexibility to do things at the times you want to do them. You can plan your day around social events or time with your family. Just don't forget to schedule a block of time for work each day. And, if there is a whole day that you cannot work because of other commitments, schedule a larger block of time for work on the next day and a larger check list of "must-dos".

    Taking a 1 - 2 hour break is essential to me. I've been doing this for many years now. My concentration and productivity are at their best from 6 am - 12 pm. Then I take a break. Usually, I try to get out of the house. Even driving in my SUV relaxes me and takes away the stress I accumulate between those hours. A long walk in a park is even better.

    Yes, if you lack self discipline; it is very easy to waste time. You need to find a hobby or some other activities to just relax and recuperate. I like to go for a run. Enjoying the trails and nature has different appreciation and value...

      I agree. Meditation is more than just important for every aspect of life. In my opinion everyone SHOULD be doing it. At least if people care about being lucky and peaceful and healthy.

    Because of this COVID affect maximum people are working from home. I am also. It is true that working from has a lot benefits, like no need to travel, no need to get ready, no need to make the tiffin early. It's ofcourse saving time. But there are some problems also. As you have mentioned. Well, I have just watched your video. It was very helpful.

    If we can treat the home office like any other office, then we will not worry about burnouts. In fact they will not be there.

    Automation of projects and daily tasks helps me and the staff. Example: Utilize a program to accomplish as much as possible such as building a new website. Fill-in the blanks, click a few buttons and the website is online in 15 minutes or less. What used to take a whole day can be done in under an hour.

  • I endeavor always to combine soulful & gentle yogah with releasin' incendiaries from outta my butt gonna command all horizons.

    Both involve exotic bendin', but only the latter demands an open window on the world ... an' firefightah expertise to place the rockets responsibly.

    Plus also, home is where the heart is, an' evrywan gotta be welcome to flop out on its cushions, I guess.

    Only problem I got is how Mom got supah Zoom Spidey sense for if'n I slouched out changin' my underweah while I transformin' into sum kinda frickin' cavegal.

    tbh I could use a date rn to figure perspective.

      Absolutely! While doing yoga poses and blowing gas at home, use your mobile phone to delegate others to do all of your work from their homes.

      Some people call that multi-tasking.

    Bouncing around and not make a to do_list make you distracted. Everyday make a little progress.

    I like to work online when iam fasting( spending the whole day with mo food). It gives me more focus to read a lot and do good stuff.

    I stay close to a resort/restaurant called Vishal Prakruthi Resorts in Hyderbad and I visit them for lunch or dinner. That way I actually take a break from work and when I come back home, I am ready to take more workload than usual. Being a bachelor and staying away from the family has its own benefits!!!

    What's helped me is establishing a cut-off time, and then when that time comes, don't even check your email. If you even do something small like check your email, you'll be compelled to reply, or do some other task. That small task will turn into a big task, and before you know it, you've extended your work day.

    Thanks for the video! I experienced burnout when I was trying to meet up with a writing schedule. Most times, I discovered that it's hard to meet up again once I start writing late on any day. Your video is much appreciated

    I've been working from home for quite some time and still I sometimes have challenges. It can also be difficult to balance expectations from the people you live with among the mental and physical challenges. At the same time it can be such a blessing. It beats driving in traffic every day!

    It is always a good idea to know what you are planning to do the next day. You have to know your income producing activities. That way you don't waste your time thinking about what you will do.

    Write things down the day before.

    If it will take you 2 hours to do something, take a 5 minute break every 20-30 minutes in between.

    Also make sure you exercise on a daily basis.
