5 Zenful Tips For Working From Home

5 Zenful Tips For Working From HomeBy Emily Belcher

While most people have far more positive’s than negative’s when comparing their work at home life versus their previous traditional jobs, there are still those moments when life seemed so much easier on the outside. Many people face new obstacles that they are challenged with that could be helped with creating a more “zenful” work at home atmosphere.

Working at home can create a lot of pressure or the feeling of having a lot on your shoulders. Although there is no supervisor breathing down your neck, you still feel a level of pressure from an inner voice saying that you need to prove that you don’t need to be supervised constantly.

Loneliness is another common complaint from many people who have decided to work from home. A good majority of people work while they are home alone. While you may think that would be the ideal setting (because honestly, it can be almost impossible to get anything done with distractions from other people), it can make you feel very isolated and depressed.

There are a few quotes floating around on the internet about the dangers of being left alone with your thoughts. Working from home can give you the luxury of freedom, yet the consequence of a roaming, unsupervised mind can be overwhelming. Keeping your focus can be tricky, especially when there are distractions (and trust me, there will always be distractions to encounter). (more…)

How to Make $1,000 a Month Working From Home

How to Make $1,000 a Month Working From HomeBy Holly Reisem Hanna

When I first launched my blog, I wanted to make an extra $700 a month, so that I could continue to participate in my weekly exercise classes, pay for my daughter’s baby and me classes, and enjoy my weekly latte habit.

Even though I was working 10 hours a week as a social media manager, the money I made from that job covered bills, food, and my blogging expenses. To cover my extra curricular activities, I sold things online and at thrift stores, I participated in paid focus groups, and even worked an occasional weekend shift at my old nursing job.

Fortunately, my blog gained traction quickly and within 3 months I started earning money from it. Today my blog is my primary source of income. The point of my story is … if there is a will there is a way. If you need to make $700 or more a month – you can do it. If you need to make an extra $1,000 a month  — you can do it.

Here are some ideas, stories, and ways for you to get started bringing in the cash!

Teacher Document Creator – $500 – $1,500 a month

I am a teacher turned stay at home mom. When I first left the classroom, I discovered a website called Teachers Pay Teachers. It is an open marketplace where teachers create resources that they sell to other teachers. (more…)

4 Healthy Eating Tips for Work at Home Women

4 Healthy Eating Tips for Work at Home WomenBy Christy Schutz

Contrary to popular belief, work at home women do not have unlimited time or more opportunities to take care of all the domestic duties that they typically manage on top of their work duties. I think people have this picture in their mind of a remote worker fielding a conference call while folding laundry and prepping dinner. And I’m guessing this might happen for some, but it definitely doesn’t happen for me.

Due to my Type A, over-functioning tendencies, I often find myself working longer hours than I did when I worked from a traditional office. I’ve found some ways to strike a better balance, but, one area I really struggle with is dinner time or cooking and meal prep in general. Between work and my kid’s activities, I can’t seem to get this cooking thing streamlined or organized so that it happens in a consistent way. As a result, we eat out way more than we should or settle on less healthy alternatives because we’re pressed for time, hangry, or just too tired to care.

Due to some health concerns and a desire to look and feel better, I’ve set some weight loss goals to shed some serious pounds over the course of the next 6-9 months. As a result, I’ve spent time researching the best tactics to manage and dare I say get ahead of this food prep thing. I thought I’d dedicate today’s post to sharing the following tips I plan to implement as I embark on this journey. (more…)
