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:

 

1) Plan a Consistent Transition Activity

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.

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 feels like I'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 many...

Mistakes: What's Perfect About This?

The Waiter

I was in a restaurant one day and the waiter came by to show us the specials. Of course, for an empath, we can see when a waiter is just going through a spiel. This waiter sincerely loved everything he was recommending. When we told him what we wanted, no matter how strange, he would bring it out with all the trimmings. 

We engaged in very nice conversation and actually got to know each other in a very authentic way. Nothing was forced and everything he said added value to our conversation, our dining experience, and our lives. 

However, once we got our entrees, one of us realized he didn't bring out the appetizer, and mentioned it to him. He immediately felt terrible and asked if we still wanted it (we didn't). Then he asked if he could get us extra of anything at all (we didn't need it). However, at the end, he ended up giving us our dessert to rectify the mishap. 

We were very happy with the service, and once we were done, we gave him a very good tip and...

Empaths: How To Be Your Own Boss

A toxic manager once told me that it was his worst bosses who had taught him the most in life.  That is an elegant thought but there is only so much suffering we can endure. The truth is, no one deserves to be treated unfairly by a person in power. 

Toxic work environments and abuse of power has to stop. This website is taking part in that (r)evolution. 

Most of my career has been under horrible bosses. My old manager was right in that they taught me the most -- they taught me what I was willing to accept in my life and what I wanted real empathy to look like in leadership. I decided to become my own boss. You can do that, too. Here's something to get you started.

How To Be Your Own Boss 

1) First, realize that being your own boss does not mean starting your own business (but you can if you want!) Being your own boss means empowering yourself to take responsibility for what you do, and perform quality work because if you were the boss, that's what you'd want. You...

LAW #13: Why Everyone Must FAIL At Least Once In Their Life

The 13th Law of Success in Napoleon Hill's book The Law of Success is about Failure.  

There are 2 ways to look at failure -- like a monkey that never leaves your back and sticks to you so much that you believe you are destined for failure on a regular basis, and that you'd never get out of that death spiral -- or you can see it as a magical "redirect".

People who are comfortable with failure know that the Universe has their back. They don't worry because they know they are alive, and no failure has killed them yet. 

Why Failure Feels So Bad

What people worry most about failure is actually the fear of death. Because if we don't succeed, we are not worthy, and if we are not worthy, then we won't be loved. And when we are not loved, we feel like we will die.

It's not too far from reality. In the caveman times, we had to be "loved" or accepted into the tribe or we would be cut off from their food, protection and companionship. No one would risk being cut off in that...

LAW #14: How Cooperation Can Make You Money

Have you ever been excited to see someone you have followed on YouTube collaborate with another awesome YouTuber?

Or have you ever been a fan of someone and was introduced to someone you were equally excited about through a social collab?

Most of Empaths tend to be introverts, so the idea of going out of your comfort zone and prospecting someone to help you in your mission can be pretty daunting. 

In this article, I explain the #14th Law of Success as written by Napoleon Hill, and how you can use it to increase your success as an Empath in the Office.

Law #14: Cooperation

Understanding the Law of Cooperation is understanding how economics works. The world operates as a system, rather than in sylos. If you look in nature, you see a system of ants moving in cooperation, a hive of bees with compatible functions, even groups of trees that shelter the crops and animals below. As an effect, nature is abundant, with treasure troves of fruit from...

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...
