Yesterday I felt pretty hyper. I was getting a lot done. By the end of the day it dawned on me. I actually had energy, which only happens a few times a year. Today I’m back to normal but it was so much fun to actually feel like doing stuff. Unfortunately, it was an unfamiliar feeling but I’m grateful that I had it.
I’ve been working from home for a long time now. My first piece of advice used to be to always have a backup plan. I don’t really think that is practical anymore because the internet changes so quickly. I spent a lot of time making back up plans instead of focusing on where the money is while there was actually money to be made.
Now my first piece of advice is that you need to have a backup fund. I try to follow Suze Orman’s advice to have an eight month emergency fund. I have found that isn’t even enough. You don’t want to count on a monthly income or you may have to learn about creditors rights in bankruptcy.I don’t know if I would have made it this long without doing so. What is your best advice for working from home?
I’ve been asking myself this question a lot lately. It seems like ever since I turned 31 my brain just started to go. I can read a paragraph and not remember the beginning part by the time I finish. I spend a lot of time stumbling for words and don’t remember details or events as clearly as I used to. It’s not a huge deal but I don’t know if it is fibro fog or that I’m just getting slightly older. Granted, I don’t think it’s much different from most people I know but I’ve always been fairly good at remembering things. My game plan to fix this is to eat healthy and exercise more. I’m going to try a few supplements, sleap more, and play a few brain training games everyday. What’s your vote, fibromyalgia or the natural aging process?
