Key Ideas

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.

Separating private from professional life

While working remotely, it might turn up to be quite challenging to separate private from professional life. This is why you should try to find a ritual that has the role to set the boundaries between the two.

Furthermore, you could also place the things you use while working in a separate place from your personal belongings.

Home office in a shared home

Working remotely is likely to become permanent in many companies, given the uncertainty of the current situation.

While doing home office can be quite a piece of cake when you live alone, it might become a challenge if you live with somebody else. The most important is that both you and your partner know exactly how to support and help each other in order for things to function properly.
