Do you go with your mood when work at home?

Yes I do. Infact most of the time because no one talk to me in the process of working at home, I do feel moody and stop working after that. When my mood is back again I continue to work. How about you? It doesn't matter offline or online. Share your views on this. Thank you.

Dear friend, For working at home is much flexible, I could allot time and also get my home matters adjusted much better than working in office. But I feel my mind would not stay close to the work I do, when I do it in my home if I have other things too do there.

Yeah, when you have to do laundry and you have to online at the same time it really affect my working mood. But still its more flexible than in the office.

I'm generally very distracted when I try to work from home. I have a four-year old who wants to play with me all the time. So I get very little done. But when I'm at the office and tell myself that I must finish my work within a certain number of hours, I complete my work easily. Mood does play a part and I do fall into the roller-coaster cycle of emotions that really is not helping me in my job. Too much flexibility, I guess...

it is fair to everyone, sometimes our spirits rise to the top, sometimes drops to the lowest point. smart devide the time for work and rest are key in causing the spirit of the ongoing. no need to hurry, take it easy all must be completed and yielded satisfactory results...*_^

When I was working outside the home, it wasn't possible for me to be able to take a break from my work when there was something that was really eating at me. However, being that I am now a stay-at-home mother that does some independent work at home, I really do walk away from whatever work that I am doing when there is something going on that has put me in a bad mood. I really feel like I do much better work when I am in a good mood.

Even though I've read a lot about being work regardless of our mood, it's still very hard for me to work without it. When I'm in a good mood, I've once sleep only for 2 hours to get the job done! But when I'm not in the mood, I've often done anything in a whole working-hour of one day. The best tips I always try to do is: just keep working when you're not in the mood. That's way, you may eventually find your mood back. But it just not as easy as it said... :(

Of course I do. Most of the time the mood has a great influence on my work,especially when I work at home. Because When I work in the office,I will consider co-workers' feeling,so that the office atmosphere is harmounious. Usually,when my mood is bad,I will stop working and relax,as soon as possible to chang my mood. When it goes better,I'm working again.

Well, depends. but the advantage of working at home is you have control over your time. You manage your own schedule as long as you can meet the deadline. I try to keep my mood under control

when I work it puts me in a good mood, because I feel useful productive. and like i'm getting somewhere. and that's the best feeling! but I try to always stay positive and what not, its always good to be that way. you know?, but i do understand what you mean by no one talking to you and putting oyu that process better. sometimes I experience that too

I try to work no matter what my mood is if I have to work at home,but it's obvious that if I'm in a good mood I work better and faster,and if I think about something nice that I will do after work,it motivates me and helps me avoid bad mood.

I don't work at home because I don't have a job but my husband does work at home. When he works, he focuses on his work stuff and doesn't talk. If I distract him, he has to concentrate again. He is not very moody when working at home but of course, he doens't wnat to bring work home.

I will never bring my bad mood to work either at home or at workplace, if you do that, it will definitely affect your performance and you will get a poor result of your work too. So, try to control your EQ and that will really help.

Me too. Sometimes working at home can be very boring because you have no one to talk to. That's what usually happens to me. Sometimes I could just go lie or watch a movie all day because I don't feel like working. And then I get guilty and the next day would work my mind off, LOL! Sometimes I just clean the house if I don't feel like working, which I believe is better than just lying around or watching a movie! :)

For more than a week now i've been upset and heartbroken so i cannot function well on my job. However, my teaching ability was not affected at all, but it changes my mood when i write here in mylot or chatting with friends. Everybody noticed that i have changed somehow and i'm no longer happy like i used to.

Hi dears, Yes, even I do. Whenever I feel moody, I will have a break and people at home would be so happy. Because they can sit on the computer whenever I am not there. But at home I will be using only in the night time and will not got for not more than 2-3 hrs. Sitting at home and work is not so comfortable for me as I am back from office after 8 hrs. of work and 2 hrs. of journey. However, as it is only for myLot, I feel comfortable whenever I am with myLot. Regards, thank-s

Everybody can be affected by their moods. So when you are happy to do a thing then of course you are in a positive mood. And if you dont like what you do then you are in a negative mood. But its all to that person how he or she can handle herself. You must always be in control in any situation that you are in.
