Work-from-home

Work-from-homers should actively remind themselves to be compassionate and generous with those who cannot work from home.

  • Remove all the garbage from the corner of your home that will appear in your meetings.
  • Place a few houseplants in the background.
  • Position yourself so that light hits you from the front, rather than from the back or side.
  • If you use Zoom, apply a subtle retouch filter to your appearance.
  • Don't bother staring at anyone's wild eyes. After you have evaluated your co-workers and backgrounds, watch only yourself.
  • Everyone in the house should feel that they have been consulted.
  • Your plan should establish people's schedules and preferred working locations.
  • Figure out a way to share common areas. Establish what is fine and what is distracting.
  • Try and have a break for lunch around the same time, so people can check in with each other and be a bit louder.
  • Once a schedule has been established, stick to it. Everyone can't change their plan because you decided to take a 90-minute break in the middle of the day.

For the time being, put a sticker, some tape, or anything else over your computer's camera. Don't assume that because you can't see someone, they can't see you.

Working from a comfortable home

While working from home during the current pandemic, you might want to consider tips that could make your life easier.

For instance, making sure that you feel joyful and productive at home is the main key to good functioning in these quite particular times. Arranging the things you have at home is bound to set you up for positive feelings.

To give your day structure, keep the same routine as when you went into an office. Get up at the same time and make a to-do list. Check in with the same person every morning.

Your schedule will change over time as you adjust to your new working arrangement.
