This is a portmanteau of "work" and "hibernate," meaning to work in an isolated, enclosed space for long, sustained periods of time such as days or weeks, and with limited social contact. In contrast to chronic hermitism, workination usually is periodical or cyclical, and is particularly present during the winter months.
I can't see my girlfriend and I have turned off my cell phone because I need to workinate all weekend.
