@Audrey, Have you tried a coworking space before? Most of us have done work or meetings coffee shops. Coworking spaces seems to be a bit more focused and less distracting.
Audrey Atkins's comment, June 4, 2013 8:08 PM
@Marvin, No I haven't. I live in a pretty remote area and most everything I need is online. I do use Skype and other social media tools for communicating though.

Good advice for countering stress.

Go to gratitude -- the minute you feel yourself starting to freak (like OMG it is going to be winter soon). Stop and find something to be grateful for. And if you can't think of anything, appreciate that you can see the words on this page.Be in the moment -- to the extent that you are able. Establish a daily discipline of some kind of practice like meditation or yoga to support you and reap the benefits.
Tina Sims, M.A., ACRW, CPRW, GCDF's curator insight, July 17, 2013 10:24 PM

There are only two things anyone can control: your thoughts and your actions! Get happy and reach for joy!
