The Work-At-Home Guide

The struggle is real for people who work at home. Lack of productivity, loneliness, overwork, and bad posture— these are just a few of the 7 Deadly Problems at-home employees face. Not to mention it’s hard to change out of your pajamas when you’re really only going to your office… 15 feet away from your bed. The bottom line is working at home isn’t for everyone; you really have to make it work for you if you want to succeed.

Tips to Deal With Loneliness

Surveys show that loneliness is one of the top difficulties facing remote workers. Loneliness makes life a chore: talking to others becomes anxiety-ridden, relaxing becomes difficult, productivity suffers, and overthinking becomes your default thinking mode. I used to suffer from loneliness and extreme social isolation, and I know it’s much harder than just “snapping out of it.” I want you to know you are not alone in this. We can deal with loneliness together.
