Work from home struggles

Unread post by Lany Sullivan » Fri Nov 06, 2015 2:26 pm

The struggle is real people! Working from home is a very different dynamic than going into the office every day. Yes, there are some days that are more professional, but overall I think this writer nailed these issues!

What work from home struggles are your biggest?

Here are the first 4, but you'll have to click the link above to read the last 8!

1. Putting on your pants feels like dressing up
2. You never really stop working
3. You forget what it's like to actually interact with people
4. You start talking to your pets like they're people

Side note: I don't read Playboy (I swear!), but I saw the title of this article and thought it interesting that it was on Playboy.

Honestly, I don't see any of these as problems. What does bother me is that my neighbors even see me out.

And who doesn't talk to their pets that way?

Ok, I have to cut this short and go change my socks.


I watch YouTube videos.

I see them as a normal way of life. LOL!! Talking to Mika is like talking to a normal human being. I do wish that she would talk back sometimes.

You wear socks?? No way!

That was hilarious. I stand guilty of several of these and that makes me laugh. The food being out of wack, putting on pants but don't forget this:

I don't really care that it's a Playboy article either, men have been saying for years they read it for the articles and this proves why ;)

I get stuck in a rut working from home at times, Jess. Now that I am back in Portland, I'll be better about it because I'll have my family to drag me out...that means I have to actually put on real clothes and shower. LOL!

I do love that video too...

This makes me giggle! For me, it's "hair and make-up" more than the clothes! On "client days" (since we meet by video) I make sure I wear make-up and do my hair. On days when I don't have clients scheduled, I do NOT. I didn't realize how big of a difference it was until I went to CVS to pick up milk on a "client" day - and the cashier said, "you look really nice today". I say thanks - and she continued with, "usually you look pale and sick when you come in". HA - Note to self: only shop on client days!!!


Make today productive, rewarding, and fun!

Bwahahaha!!!! That is really funny Lisa! I only put on makeup for recording days too. Even clients don't always get the makeup. I'm on video so much, that I'm ok now not having hair and makeup done.

Re-reading this post and all the comments has me in hysterics tonight. Putting on pants feels like dressing up...YUP! I talk to Mika like she's a human ALL.THE.TIME. This was a good refresher for tonight.
