I work from home and it’s absolutely amazing. As a hardcore introvert who needs a lot of uninterrupted quiet time to focus on various projects, it’s a dream come true. But there are times when it feels like living in an endless time loop. When days and weeks begin to blur together, it’s easy for the creative side of the brain to feel sludgy and stagnant.
You might think those are the times to just “go out”. Hang out with friends, run wild and free out on the town, or at least do some therapy shopping until the creative mood strikes once again… but that’s not usually an option for me. If I want an escape for a few hours, need to take time off to refresh, or find a little variety to spice up my life, I need to find it within my own home. And believe me, there are plenty of ways to find that without leaving the house.
