  1. The article on entrepreneurs handling “me” time was SUPER interesting. That is something that I think I would really struggle with. I need the structure of a day / the demarcation of when it is “done” else I go bonkers. That is part of the reason why I didn’t like college. There was ALWAYS more that you could do. More studying, more reading, etc etc etc.

    In fact, when I worked from home for a year, I still got up every day, took a shower, and went into my office. I was very explicit that when I was “done” working, I didnt go back into the office until the next day. Helped me stay sane.

    • Great tips! Working from home is definitely a challenge, and I have to say that I’m only about halfway successful with it.
