Hi Wendy,
Being in a similar position, working from home that is, I know where you are coming from. and sometimes, you think that you can just turn the day around if you push on for another couple of hours.

I think first thing is first you need to have a debrief with yourself on the day. Have a look at what went wrong and why, but more importantly, look at everything you did achieve – even if it feels like nothing, look deeper – have the bad bits taught you some valuable lessons for the future, or perhaps a little email you glossed over earlier, where a customer has heaped praise on you. No day is ever wasted that you actually attempted to do something!

Once you have had the debrief with yourself, come on here, or to your own personal blog site, get it all off your chest, then close the computer, switch off your phone and go be with your family.
