As a work-at-home mom, I sometimes don’t get the quiet that would make my work environment ideal for me. It seems that there is always something, or somebody making noise at our house.Â With summer just around the corner, I expect that the noise will only increase.
I’m lucky. I’m one of those people that can tune out theÂ irrelevant sounds around me and focus in on the task at hand. Of course, sometimes this leads to a kid standing in front of me going, “Mom, Mom, Mom … ”
(I’ve been trying to train the kids not to disturb me when I’m working unless they are bleeding or in imminent danger.)
What about you? How noisy, or quiet,Â would your preferred work environment be? How noisy, or quiet, is your actual work environment?
