Good times ahead.


Don't Lose Sleep

It's hard not to lose sleep over the growing health crisis, but working from home might just give us back the hours we need to keep our immune systems topped up.

Americans commute 27 minutes each way and sleep an average of 6.8 hours or 408 minutes each night. Those 54 minutes of commuting could mean an extra 13% of sleep time.

However, if you've never worked from home, this gain will not happen overnight. Efficiently working from home takes practice and discipline.

Many work-from-home veterans end or start each day by writing down a minute-by-minute plan for the day. They include realistic times for breaks and potential interruptions like kids coming home from school if that's a factor.

If you are reading this and you've never tried working from home, then that one suggestion is more than enough to help you maintain some sense of control and focus.

If you have worked from home you'll be able to relate to the fact that I had a line in my schedule right after "dinner/kids" 7-9pm that said "Monday blog entry on Sleep" 9:00-9:30pm . . . and no longer.
