Resources for Frazzled Parents Who Are Working from Home With Kids

Let's face it, "working from home" when you've got kids running around usually doesn't involve getting much actual work done. As a parent, juggling the kids plus your job can be overwhelming. If you find yourself turning to unhealthy habits to cope–like stress eating—it's time to make a change. These resources can help you reclaim your zen.


Create a Healthy Home for You and Your Kids


It will be easier to nix bad habits if your home is designed to support healthy choices.


  • Look for products for your house that safeguard your and your children's health, like toxic-free cleaning products. Read online reviews so you can buy with confidence.

  • Set up a meditation space for yourself and declare it a kid-free zone.

  • If your house isn't big enough to accommodate working from home plus kids, it may be time for an upgrade. Use a home affordability calculator to see what you can afford.
