People who work alone are at high risk for depression and anxiety. The very nature of the work is crazy-making. We work insane hours, our brains never turn off, and we tend to neglect basic necessities. (It's 10 p.m. and I haven't eaten dinner. Or showered. I should probably do that.)
Take a break and that is where Second Life comes in during these times when you are all of a sudden need a break from zoom meetings and conference calls and the blah blah blah emails. I tend to take out an hour for just logging in and saying hi to a few people and I feel better that they understand because they are also going through this as well. You see you are never really alone.

You may not have control over all the stress in your life, but you're in complete control of your environment. Lower your stress and set yourself up for success with an office designed to maximize productivity. I just bought some lighting for my room and that makes a big difference. I also like to spray the room all over with some of my favorite sprays or perfumes. It makes me happy! You know those magazines that have perfume samples in them. Don't throw them away, rub them all over your pillow.
Get inspired and try out some of those free gifts you collected from all of the fairs and stored. You'd be surprised at what you find. One thing...do stay well.
