Working From The Bedroom

Many of us are working from home, with our bedroom doing double duty as our office cabin. There is less exposure to daylight as we stay indoors more, mainly due to lack of a commute, resulting in our body clocks not syncing properly with the time of day.

These factors can affect our ability to sleep and also our sleep quality.

Working on the bed affects one’s sex life as well, as never in thousands of years has a couple been together 24 hours a day.

Working, eating, sleeping and parenting in the same area of space can make it difficult to switch context, and it may help to move some furniture, alter the lighting, or create a different environment using fragrances to ensure that there is a ‘break’ from the other routine work.
