    I LOVE all of the tassles. You’re gorgeous, girl!

    I also love all of the tips. I’m a frequent traveler on the strugglebus. Sometimes with a one-way ticket.

    These are such great tips, I especially agree with the taking breaks part. I always do a quick workout when I feel that afternoon lull come on!

    Very nice outfit! And I agree with you….there are very good suggestions…..Especially the “dress for the day one”….I work from home too and sometimes I get so caught up on work that I forget that I am still a woman!

    Maybe we bloggers need to be more collaborative to beat away the recluse blues. Hmmm… maybe this would be a worthwhile topic to write about. It would also be interesting to know how much time people are spending on projects like research, editing, photography etc… I find that editing and formatting (pics and text) take far more time than I want them to.

    Beautiful outfit, I’m loving all of it! Thanks for the oomph I needed this Monday as well, I do multitask and I lose productivity that way for sure!

    I need to slap myself on the hand for multitasking. It always gets me into trouble! I’m terrible at zoning out because I try to focus on one thing for a long period of time so taking a break is something I need to obviously be implementing into my work schedule.

    I love the pop of color! I agree, on Mondays, dressing for the day always give you that extra push!

    Turning off my phone for a while, or putting it in another room on silent helps me relax so much. Also, love your outfit! So boho!

    You are so stunning. Love this look on you.

    And I am with you on No Multitasking. It is so over rated. I believe in doing one thing at a time.

    You’re so right about the multi tasking. I feel like it stresses you out way more than you being productive. Love the article!

    These are such great tips! It can be so easy to get sucked in and completely lose track of time! I myself need to check out more and make an effort to put the devices down.

    You’re spot on with your tips Tara. I’ve been working from home for about 18 years now and always made an effort to get dressed before plonking myself down in front of the laptop. That is until about a month ago, when I got a serious bout of bronchitis and I ended up feeling so sorry for myself that I got out of the habit of dressing up. My gown and I became the best buddies ever. Fast forward and here I am still in my gown and feeling sad. That’s going to stop, so thanks for sharing your musings.

    I used to be a proud multi tasker. I am slowly realizing its effects on my work and my stress. I am correcting myself. I totally agree with your pointers.

    Great tips! I’ve noticed the zoning in and not moving about myself – so I try to move around the house while I work. It helps. Definitely going to implement some more of your ideas too.

    Great earrings!!

    Aww! You are so stunning. I love your outfit, earring and the shoes. You look like a celebrity in it. I am a multi tasker too before but i have quit because people are having advantage of me.

    I’ve worked from home for several years & it’s easy to get distracted. It’s easy to want to work in PJs too. I typically work sans makeup, but I still get dressed (I’ll occasionally stick to leggings). I also tend to multitask & it’s something I’m working on getting better at. ????

    Planning ahead is the only way I get anything checked off my To Do Lists. I do need to work on the ‘getting dressed everyday’ part. I have been known to get to caught up in what I’m doing that the day passes me by and I’m still in my Jammies. I’m working on that for sure!

    Oh wow… your earrings and heels and matching bags look amazing and stunning! i Like how you paired them with a similar white dress that has those frilly stuff~ Dressing up is definitely a way to keep your week going!

    I think that I have to learn more about NOT multitasking as much as I do. That would make things so much easier for me. I do like the other tips and my favorite (after the multitasking one) is to check out. Sometimes, when I feel overwhelmed, I realize that it’s because I forget to check out. That is a very important thing to do. Thanks, good reminders!

    As always, your outfit is incredible. I would say they multi-tasking is my biggest hindrance when it comes to getting stuff done during the day. I get so distracted doing too many things at nothing end up actually getting fully accomplished.

    Those are some killer heels. Multitasking is one this that I try to do but most of the time that I fail so I drop one project and do it one at a time and it comes out better.

    You are so gorgeous with your outfit. It perfectly suits. we all need to take a break from the world and just do what you really love and badly needed. That is so mind refreshing.
