A Change of Scenery for this Work at Home Life

Working at home definitely has it’s perks. However, one of the things I’ve discovered is I am now less likely to spend time outside of the house during the week unless I’m schlepping my kids around or running errands. My day can easily turn into a mash up of my professional and personal life if I don’t intentionally make an effort to get out of the house. Stepping out to grab lunch solo, or with my husband, who also works at home often serves as a way for me to get some air and mix in a little lunch date.

As to not get my mind completely out of work mode, I tend to keep my afternoon excursions close to home so I can get back and finish my day in time to get the kids off to their activities starting at 4p. Wendy’s is one of the establishments I head to for something quick. The location near my house is literally around the corner, and has been recently remodeled. Depending on what’s going on at work,  I’ll either sit in and use their WiFi and make it a working lunch, or I’ll take my order to go. My quick go to lunch, usually consists of cutting up a six piece chicken nugget over a side salad, and adding in a cookie for a little  sweet afternoon pick me up.


Work at Home

Most days fresh air really does something great for my mood. I’ve recently been diagnosed with low Vitamin D so a little sunshine is always a good thing. Setting  a work life balance really takes intention when you work at home, and something as simple as getting out to have lunch or run an errand can help break the monotony of your week.

I have a list of places I frequent to change things up when I start to get restless, I’ll continue to share some of my favorite places to work from when I’m tired of being in the house. Stay tuned for more in this series of me transitioning back into full time, work at home life!

    I didn’t realize it until I was out of state how nice it is to get out and set up work somewhere out of my home. I have to check out my local Wendy’s. They were recently remodeled as well. I typically will stop there for my son. However, I have to make some time for myself and enjoy lunch there.

      Working at home can get lonely. Some days it hits me that I haven’t had any interaction with people all week, or been outside for an extended period of time.

    I like to run to Wendy’s and grab a salad on my lunch break. I always do drive thru though. Maybe i need to sit down.

      Sometimes I just need a change of scenery, after being cooped in the house all day.

    The change of scenery and break in the monotony is definitely necessary! My husband also works from home now so it’s my son AND him with me. I love it but my husband, knowing I’m easily distracted, basically forces me to go to the coffee shop to work. It’s so easy to stay in but getting out is does much for my mood! Also, this is one fancy Wendy’s!! LOL!! I gotta see what mine is lookin like now!
