Working From Home? How To Transition From Work To Home Life (LIFE CHANGING!)

By: Contributing Writer

Since moving from an office environment into a remote workplace, Bloomberg has noted that US workers have logged in an average of an extra 3 hours of work per day. One of the reasons for this is that we are not able to manage the transition between work and home life since on the surface it all looks the same. It absolutely doesn’t have to be this way – and we're here to share tips that worked for us and other highly successful people who have been working from home for 10-20 years.

We all deserve to have a blissful life even with our work (do work that you love!), free from unnecessary stress, toxic work environments, and burnout. If you don’t yet believe this, please take a moment to re-read this statement and consider letting this idea in.

Here are 5 ways to successfully transition from work life to home life when working remotely so that you can enjoy your life and work smarter:

5 Unusual but Transformative Ways to Work From Home (THIS MAY CHANGE YOUR LIFE!)


By: Contributing Writer

For some office workers, this is their first time working from home. The strange combination of working a corporate job from home can be a shock to most. I can relate. Having been in a corporate environment all of my work life, I can say the difference is stark. However, even if I’ve worked in a conservative field like finance for most of my life, I went home to study martial arts, yoga/pilates, psychology, and various contemplative arts.

With the knowledge gained from all those areas, I want to share 5 unusual ways that helped me conquer working from home. You will probably not see these in any other article, but they are nonetheless deeply transformative and may change your life.

How To Create Healthy Food Options (Vegan, Vegetarian, Pescatarian) In A Quarantine

Quarantine situations can make it hard to get not only variety but also access to fresh produce we once freely enjoyed.  An Empath knows how important it is to keep our minds and bodies as clear with natural, wholesome foods. However, there are few ideas out there for eating right and well in a quarantine. 

So we pulled together all you need to know on how to get the most cost-effective, least processed, healthy food when you're not allowed to leave the house. Some of these will be vegan options, others vegetarian, and others will include fish or chicken. Read on below to see some general tips and food combinations to prepare for months of quarantine. 

Top 10 Pieces of General Advice Before You Go Shopping

  1. Flash-frozen foods, such as vegetables, fish, and fruits hold much of their original nutrients. They also last for many months in the freezer. They are also relatively cost-effective.
  2. Breakout your food purchases into fresh, frozen, and canned/dry purchases,...

A Surprising Cure For Stress & Overwhelm

By: Contributing Writer

Have you left your keys in the fridge lately? I don't know about you, but 2020 started out with a bang. It may only be February but it may feel like you've done half a year of work already.

Lately, I've been acutely aware of how stress impacts our lives and our work. A different part of us shows up when under stress, and this part is seriously stunted in making the right decisions and being effective. Not only that, but it harms the people around us, by the dense "moods" we inhabit.

Find The Traumatic Event

What I've found is that if we are extremely aware of ourselves, there is often a triggering emotionally traumatic event that causes the shift between the part of us who operates in normal stressful environments and the part of us who operate in a state of overwhelm. That straw that breaks the camel's back.

A triggering event can be a sudden pile on of work, facing intense pressure from many sides, or not being able to complete an important task due to...

10 Reasons You May Be Too Stressed At Work... During The Holidays!

Like the frog in a pot of water that does not realize it is being boiled as the temperature rises slowly, often we do not realize our stress levels sneakily rising during the holidays. Here are 10 sneaky ways stress sneaks up with you at work... and how to become human again. 

10 Sneaky Ways To Know You Or Someone You Know Is Boiling Stressed From The Holidays:

10.  You get an out of office message with a backup contact, and you email the first person asking for their backup contact (yes, this happens). 

9. You get an out of office message from a colleague with a date they are expected to return to the office, and you forget what the date is (or even that they are out of the office) and continue to email them asking for the date they will return (yes, this happens).

8. You complain to the person who sent you a link to something why the link doesn't work instead of realizing that it may be a technical issue.

7. The conversations you have with your significant other or...

Why KPIs Should Be Obsolete

Managers Take Their Stress Out on Employees

A manager came to us struggling with a peculiar situation: he found out his employees were trashing him behind his back. It turned out that morale started getting very low and toxic after he had yelled at them for not achieving their deadlines on time. He had been under a lot of stress to meet KPIs -- so he would explode in rage to his employees.

This is not an uncommon scenario. People can be scarred by managers' anger, stress and rage taken out on them. Most of the time, the employee's intentions were very good, they gave it their all, yet they were punished. And work was never the same. That's when the environment started to get toxic, not just for the person who bore the brunt of managerial anger, but for everyone.

Do THIS Everyday To Become Outrageously Successful

Throughout my life I've studied and followed countless mentors on success: Tim Ferriss, Napoleon Hill, Russell Brunson, Marisa Peer, Jeremy McGilvey, and Tony Robbins to name a few. 

The golden thread between their teachings, and the most powerful strategy I've found to gain success with absolute certainty is doing what you hate, and doing it first. If you have to fire someone, do it first. If the worst thing of the day for you is getting out of bed into the shower, jump out into that cold shower without thinking. 

The reason this works is because it builds POSITIVE MOMENTUM to make real changes in your life. By getting what you hate out of the way, you are freeing up the space for things you want - a much better fit. 

By removing that employee that is not a cultural fit, you leave the space for a peak performer that inspires the group. 

By jumping into a cold shower without negotiating with your brain on waiting another minute, or that you want to watch a...
