Christmas is just around the corner! With only 14 days to go, I have almost ticked off everything in my annual Christmas gift list. I make list early in the year and I have a “basic” gift for everyone and just add things I know the person would appreciate until gift giving time. BUT.. If you have not yet completed your holiday gift shopping yet, I have an idea and it’s a luxurious one!
Working from home has numerous advantages, and disadvantages. While I can go on and on enumerating the many good things about working from home (no daily commutes!), I can also list several disadvantages. But, being the positivist that I am when it comes to work, I try to turn these disadvantages into opportunities. One of these disadvantages are the greater tendency to procrastinate and to just laze around and do nothing, effectively becoming unproductive. Also, the technical part of working from home also becomes a disadvantage at times because you do not have a tech guy (who’s an expert on computers and technical stuff) to call and fix a problem immediately. Another disadvantage also stems from our often poor Internet connection, busting our productivity bubbles in a snap. In this post, I’m going to share with you my top three productivity killers and how I deal with them.
I have been working from home since 2008. In my tiny apartment, which I now share with my husband, who also works from home, we have designated spaces for different functions, including a small space for work. Today, I’m going to share with you what our work space looks like and a few tips on how to make working at home a pleasant experience.
It is not a surprise that once in a while I would indulge in a post solely about flowers. I have always loved flowers, especially because my grandmother grows lots of flowering plants in her home. When I do my weekly groceries shopping at the wet market, I often make sure to buy flowers to brighten up our tiny home. To inspire me, I browse the net, most especially Pinterest, and look through florists’ websites, like BloomNation (a website for florists that offers flower delivery) and magazines.
