One of the blogs I subscribe to recently put up his thoughts on working from home, and its a really great article. Ryan Irelan, working from home, has been part of some great projects online, and so I suggest we all take a good look at his thoughts, especially if you are suffering from a bit of working from home burnout.

Learn to Clock Out
One misconception is that when you work from home the tendency is to work less because you’re distracted with home “stuff.” Au contraire! For me it’s been the exact opposite. I’ve found it difficult to clock out in the evenings because I’m already home!
This also includes making your co-workers and clients aware of when you are and are not available. Don’t be shy about letting people know that you close up shop at 5 PM. Just because you work at home doesn’t mean you work every waking minute.
