Being a working mom in a creative field has its own set of challenges. I’m lucky enough to work from home, but that has its pitfalls as well. When I’m with T, I’m often distracted with thoughts of work and when I’m working I’m concerned with the minutia of my domestic life. Neither sphere is served by my lack of focus.
I usually do some yoga, light a candle, try to create a separate work space from what three minutes before was actually my closet (it’s a big closet, but it’s still a closet). Lately it just doesn’t seem effective enough.
Does anyone have suggestions for how to put bookends around your work time?
