Under normal circumstances, working from home can sound appealing. However, now that it's a reality for millions, people are finding it stressful trying to manage work and school schedules along with housework. The shutdown of most business and schools is hitting mothers especially hard, and more people are suffering from symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Christine Michel Carter is the founder of Mompreneur and Me, a networking group specially made for moms. She's got some great tips to help navigate this time.

Remember that these are not regular circumstances. Rather than working from home, you are working from home during a crisis.

Reset expectations for your family and yourself.

Let your kids play. Playing helps develop skills and reduce stress. Encourage your kids to video chat or play virtual games with their friends to keep them feeling connected.

Focus on finding some good in each day, and remember to take some time for you, even if that means just going into a different room and shutting the door.
