I really pick my moments: I've managed to come down wiith tonsillitis! It couldn't have happened at a more inconvenient time, either. I'm far too busy! So, I'm upping my vitamin intake (through healthy foods not suppliments), drinking plenty, resting as much as I can, and even skipping out on todays bootcamp training session! I was feeling ropey on Monday but didn't let that stop me from training, but today I realised that my body needed the break. I'll working on eating clean and getting myself back to normal so I can get to Friday's session. I hate missing out as the more time passes between each session, the harder it is when I go back!
Today I'm working from Newcastle Business Village as part of their co-working days. It's basically an event where people who generally work from home or small offices can work together in the 'hub space' - desks are set up with electricity points to plug in your laptop, there's free wifi, tea and coffe, and they provide lunch. Then there's an informal talk (SEO knowhow, networking and how it works, marketing for the small business etc) and give the attendees a chance to network. It's a very happy medium between both a productive and a social working day.
It certainly makes a refreshing change when you're used to woking from your home office with only your cats for company!
However, I think I'll last til lunch then head home as I feel terrible - I'm not going to be brilliant at networking when I can barely talk! Lunch isn't ideal either as not only are the gluten free options limited (I'm not complaining here, it's great that they provide lunch at all!) but swallowing is an enormous task for me right now and not one I'm willing to do in public!
But on the plus side, at least coming out to work here forced me to get up, get dressed and get on with work - I'd still be in my PJ's feeling sorry for myself and watching trash TV otherwise. I'm classy that way :-)
Do you usually work from home, or in an isolated enviroment? What are your best tips for keeping motivated?
