10 Ways to Beat the Isolation Blues

Productivity, Tip & Tricks

No CommentsLeave a Comment

Often when working from home or maybe you work out of your own office where human interaction is extinct, it is easy to fall into the isolation trap. From a business standpoint as well as personally. You do not have to go it alone! It is very important that you do not shut yourself off from the outside world.

Being alone all the time stifles creativity, creates loneliness that can lead to depression and all sorts of health problems.

I have put together my top 10 tricks to beat the isolation blues!

Get a mentor

Hire a personal or business coach

Have lunch or coffee with a friend or mentor

Work on a joint venture

Join a fitness club or hire a personal trainer

Get yourself an accountability partner to check in with on a daily basis

Go to networking events, seminars, workshops & join other organizations with likeminded peers

Get outside daily for some fresh air & sunshine. Even if it’s just a 10-15 minute walk.

Keep an active social life outside of your business. Go to parties and other social events, a retreat with a friend and of course family outing too.

My favorite thing to do when working from home – When you wake up in the morning, take a shower, get ready and dress like you are going to the office. Try it and you will see a HUGE shift in the way you work.

Taking action and actually doing these things will help you keep an outside perspective on life. Which in turn will help you remain creative and grow both professionally and personally.

Socialmedia and Skype are great to use when it’s impossible to get out. But nothing beats real world communication and human interaction.
