When you go to a brick and mortar job, you leave home behind for several hours and focus on the work you’re doing. And when you leave for the day, people always tell you: “Don’t take your work home with you!” You leave that chaos behind. But what do you do if you’re having a bad day AND you work from home? How do you separate your personal stress from your work at home life?
I am surrounded by clocks. They all tell different times. Of course, the cell phone and laptop clocks are all on a universal time, so they’re the ones we consider “accurate.”
But the rest of the clocks in my life do their own thing. The living room clock is a few minutes fast. The kitchen clock runs about a minute behind. The appliances all have different times. (The microwave has to be reset every week!) One of our car clocks is always slow.
Honestly, I have no idea what time it is. And I don’t care.
