Self-preservation is necessary when working from home. It should be mandatory and set high on everyone’s priority list.
You have the power over how you complete your tasks for work. Are you seriously gonna allow a lawnmower and a weedwhacker to negatively impact your work?

You know you have these tasks to complete and so you will find a way to get it done despite the noise around you.
Learn to bend and not break. Learn to pivot when your situation takes a sudden turn.
Sometimes we lose ‘power’ in our lives as an indication that we need to pause or slow down.
Sometimes we need to tether ourselves to others in order to be functional. Replace all the inanimate objects and replay the scenario with people who sometimes lose their way and need some help by way of other people. Other people help those in need by just facilitating a tethering process.
