Like any other job, working at home could lead you into feeling like the laziest person in the world. I sometimes feel like not working or finishing a task just because I don’t feel like it. I learned that the best thing to do is to accept that it’s a fact and it’s normal to feel that way sometimes. What you do is to know how to bounce back from your productive self. I learned from my years of working from home that sometimes it’s best to give in to your laziness for a day or two but make sure you fully understand the bulk of work you need to accomplish after springing back to your normal life. Besides, let’s accept the fact that it’s easier to feel lazy when you’re at home!
So here are few tips to regain your productive spirit:
Often it can feel as if you are carrying all the worries of the world on your shoulders. This can lead to an unbearable emotional strain. That’s the weight of stress, and at that point you need effective ways to rid yourself of that stress, and to start to feel better.
Try to pay attention to instructions. Avoid unnecessary stress by making sure you understand instructions when they are given. For example, pay attention when your boss gives you instructions, when your doctor gives you advice, or when your teacher or tutor teaches you something.
Stroking your pet cat or dog can help to relieve stress. Research has shown that people who share their lives with pets are happier and experience less stress. The animals also love attention and then you also reap benefits.
Rather than taking on more than you can handle, simply learn to say “no.” Don’t commit to more obligations than you can handle. You’ll only stress yourself out trying to do the impossible. If you’re worried about pleasing your friends, family or co-workers, remember that if you’re unable to do what you said you’d do because of stretching yourself too thin, you’ll end up upsetting or disappointing them as well as stressing yourself out.
As a work at home Mom, I have a lot on my plate every single day and my occasional amnesia does not help so what I do, I make a list of everything I need to accomplish within the day, week or even to a not so near future. I found out that writing down things that I need to get done makes me remember them more and in moments when I don’t, I have something to remind me and keep me back on track.
Stress is a part of everyone’s life, but staying stressed out does not have to be. There are always going to be things in your life that you have no control over, but you do have control over your reaction to those things. Being overly stressed not only harms you mentally, it also harms you physically.
Look for ways to make everyday responsibilities and obligations less stressful. For example, planning meals for the week can eliminate the stress of deciding what is for dinner, and creating a list of household chores (and delegating them to specific days or family members) can help to make housework less stressful.
Put worry time into your schedule. Some things do need immediate attention, but some stressors can wait until the time is more convienient. If something is bothering you, and it can wait, write it down, and when it becomes your time to worry, sit and worry about it and figure out how to fix it.
Someone emailed me this today and I think you would want to read about it too. It’s very inspiring and really got me going and toughed a bit today.

Bob Parsons® 16 Rules for Success in Business and Life in General
Get and stay out of your comfort zone.
|I believe that not much happens of any significance when we’re in our comfort zone. I hear people say, “But I’m concerned about security.” My response to that is simple: “Security is for cadavers.”|
Never give up.
|Almost nothing works the first time it’s attempted. Just because what you’re doing does not seem to be working, doesn’t mean it won’t work. It just means that it might not work the way you’re doing it. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, and you wouldn’t have an opportunity.|
When you’re ready to quit, you’re closer than you think.
|There’s an old Chinese saying that I just love, and I believe it is so true. It goes like this: “The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.”|
With regard to whatever worries you, not only accept the worst thing that could happen, but make it a point to quantify what the worst thing could be.
|Very seldom will the worst consequence be anywhere near as bad as a cloud of “undefined consequences.” My father would tell me early on, when I was struggling and losing my shirt trying to get Parsons Technology going, “Well, Robert, if it doesn’t work, they can’t eat you.”|
Focus on what you want to have happen.
|Remember that old saying, “As you think, so shall you be.”|
I always want to simplify life as much as possible and I apply this in my daily grind. I learned to prioritize and made my way through trial and errors to make my home life and work at home life as simple as it could be. Truthfully it’s different for every family so get what you can learn from my tips and apply it! Whatever works for you should be fine.
1. Make all things safe and needed reachable. I trained my daughter to get what she needs by herself so that I won’t be bothered standing from my work station a hundred times a day.
2. Rotate toys daily if not, at least thrice a week. Don’t let them get bored easily with what they have by reintroducing their old toys.
3. Have less clothing. It’s so hot and humid that it makes so much sense to let the kids wear less which of course means less clothes to wash.
4. Have a routine, a rhythm each day so the kid/s know what to expect from you.
5. Teach them household chores that are safe for them. Let them watch you cook or even help out. Let them clean up with you too. This way they know that cleaning is tedious but it’s a must.
When I decided I want to be a work at home Mom, I knew things will change in the house and in my relationship with my husband. I was determined to earn while at home and still be able to personally tend to my daughter and maintain the upkeep of our home. It wasn’t easy but gradually my family-work balance fell into the right rhythm because (thank God!), my husband supports me all the way.
If you’re thinking of being a work at home Mom (WAHM), discuss it with your husband because he’s on it more than you both realize. To help you start, let me give you few tips on how I achieved my family-work-life balance.
I am writing this because of the recent development at work and I wanted to share a few tips on how to apply for a homebased position and let you in on what the employers are looking for. I’ve been working from home for 4 years and I’ve had my fair share of project application and at the same time, hiring team members for a client. I’ve learned from many bad hiring and fake job ads and I want to at least save you from them.
Here’s what you need to know on how to apply for a work at home job (and ace it!):
1. Cover letters are important. First part of the screening process is based on your cover letter, resumes are viewed on the later part of the process for verification purposes. DO NOT submit exactly the same cover letter to all of your potential client. Personalized your cover letter according to what is being asked in the job description. Mention your working experiences based on the job asked.
Since I started working at home, I was always constrained to a small space for my work area because we live in a condo. Even now that we’re in a bigger unit, I can’t have my ideal work space for reasons I can’t truly say.
Anyway, just to keep my inspirations coming (one can’t stop dreaming), I am posting my ideas or swatch boards here:
The desk is collapsible and very ideal for small spaces. I figured I can have this made here instead of ordering it from Apartment therapy or Overstock. I like that there are compartments where I can keep my receipts, contracts and reminders together. Here’s how it looks when folded:
I like the darker color better, you?
This is another design idea I love! The baskets are too cute! I would prefer them in yellow though
My idea is more leg room and more spaces to put my pens and papers, my contracts, my receipts and what nots to.
How about you, do you have other ideas? I wanna see!
>For weeks now, I’ve been looking for a work at home job to keep me going.
I’m getting bored and a bit frustrated each day by all these household chores I have to do.
If I have a job, then I could pay someone to do the chores for me instead.
I think it’s too much of me to ask my husband to pay for it since he does all the earning and paying. Besides, it’s practical if both of us are earning.
So I’ll take this one step at a time.
First, work at home job hunt!
Second, find a good stay out helper!
I’m keeping my fingers crossed on this one!!!
