    These are some simple and yet very powerful ideas. I’d say all you need is a focus and well-recognised priorities. Everything can go smoothly when those two are set. Although – ‘get to work early’ is something that is troublesome for me – I like to work in the evening, not everyone is an early morning enthusiast ;D

    I work from home but still find most of your tips and advice relevant to me! Even working from home having a few extra minutes to myself to think about what I need to get done and enjoy that cup of coffee matters! Even though I work from home I have collaborations and networking to do and it is nice to get to know new people in my business online! Thanks for the helpful advice. I love learning new tips from others!

    Thanks for all the great tips on making my work time more productive and useful. I have to agree that although I might not always feel like getting up early and getting a jump on the day really is the best tip you can give anyone!

    For the past 19 years, I’ve worked in I.T. for corporate America. Ten of those have been as a telecommuter. While I knew there would be benefits to working from home, I had no idea how less stressful it would be. Once my days were free of things like water-cooler talk and a lot of the gossip that can happen, it felt like a huge weight had been lifted. x

    THis is a really helpful article. I am not in an office anymore but the way I keep the stress out of my job now at home is to keep a great schedule and set reasonable expectations for each day. Having more flexibility has been a benefit for me as well.

    Stress proofing is soooo important. Even when you work for yourself the stress can rise up to unbearable levels. Like right now I’m trying to not let the anxiety get to me and just ignore that I have loads of work to do, because I am on vacation. But I am so getting down to business on the plane with a schedule and timetable to things to complete over the next month. I find with a plan, the stress is less.

    I work from home and always like to learn more about what it is like to work in a place away from home as often as possible so that I do not become out of touch. Stressing less is something that we all need to do regardless of where we work and I do have an office in my home so I try to focus and get work done when in there just like you suggest. This is really helpful.

    One of the things that I regret about not having a 9 to 5 (and being self employed) is having a ‘work friend’ to rant and rave with. I think that is a good way to stay sane. It’s really not the same trying to explain work-related woes with family and friends.

    Oh, if only I read this post back when I was still working 9 to 5. But either way, as an entrepreneur now, these still apply for sure! Thanks for sharing your insight. These will help others a lot!

    I worked from 8 to 5 I’ve learned so much by reading your article. Work can be very stressful especially dealing with bosses and company management. The job I can tolerate but dealing with office drama and rude and ignorant people that’s another story.

    As the saying goes Work to live not Live to work!
