IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
An informal daily huddle where everyone is face-to-face in a virtual meeting, holding a fresh cup of coffee is a great way to start the day with purpose and energy. It requires everyone to wake up early, get dressed and make a cup of coffee.
A morning routine is great for productivity too.
Infusing music and dance in your breaks can add a sense of pleasure in the otherwise dull and drab routine, enhancing the immediate virtual surrounding of the extroverts.
Assigning buddies/partners in completion of a specific task makes work less mundane while being socially active at the same time.
One way to do it is to work using video cameras but keeping the microphone on mute.
Earlier, meetups used to be a great way for remote workers to catch up and have a dinner party while discussing the problems and issues at work.
Nowadays, these sessions have to be virtual, but can accommodate priority setting and topic-specific breakout sessions.
Integrate regular movement into your sitting-whole-day routine, and give your workdesk a break.
Indulge in the many at-home exercise routines and dancing sessions available online, and share them with a coworker, so you do it together.
Learning together, be it an online class, cooking session or even a meeting to share skills and expertise to the entire company is a great way to connect with your coworkers.
Being stranded at home with limited options to go out can have a positive side-effect.
The energy we used to connect with our coworkers can now be used to reconnect with old buddies, ex-coworkers, and even our relatives which we had forgotten in our daily work routine.
Being honest about your feelings is advisable, as remote working isn’t for everyone. Some thrive on it, others will struggle. It’s a good idea to seek help and support. Communication is always good.

People with high frustration tolerances are the ones that generally succeed at remote work. And you can take steps to raise your frustration tolerance and become more conscientious by working on your impulsivity.
A non-conscientious person will find another activity (a distraction most likely) the moment something challenging or uncomfortable comes up. They have to be more conscious to stay in the moment: count to five or take five deep breaths, for example.
When work and personal activities are occurring in the same space, there are no cues for you to behave the way you do at work while you are outside your physical office.
Those who work well from home create boundaries in a work-life world without them. Then, once these parameters are established, people who commit fewer ‘boundary violations’ are better off.
