Working from home does not necessarily mean we are enjoying life and can’t be in stress. Work can feel dull and monotonous as there is comparatively less movement or change of scenery.
With most interactions becoming virtual, one can feel trapped in this scenario with nothing to look forward to.
Burnout is experienced in a different shade at home, where the symptoms tend to be tiredness, confusion, forgetfulness, frustration and anger. As the mood starts to dip slowly, the mind reaches a low state, from which it is hard to climb back.
Taking a vacation is a great idea, to begin with, even if you don’t really go anywhere. The idea is to take a break from your work.

Researchers identified two work personality types based on a preference for the ideal boundaries between home and work: the segmenter and the integrator.

Recovery time includes detachment from the job, relaxation, a sense of mastery, or a sense of control over time spent.

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.

Over the last decade, remote working has become more and more popular.
While there are many benefits to working from home, we need to be aware of a few things.
The rapid shift to remote working has proven many jobs are capable of being done at home. There are some changes that we need to make if this is going to continue.
With the 2020 pandemic, many people are required to stay home.
If you're one of these people, you may be noticing new aches and pains you did not experience at the office.
Many companies follow an ANSI-HFS standard in the design of their computer workstations, which incorporates ergonomic furniture and accessories.
Most homes don't have the space to accommodate ergonomic office furniture, nor do most people invest in it. If you're working from home using your computer on a regular table or you sit in a lounge chair or on your bed, chances are you aren't in a healthy posture. It could potentially lead to musculoskeletal injury, carpal tunnel syndrome, or even deep vein thrombosis.
View your computer screen with a straight neck. Put your screen in front of you at a comfortable viewing height. Don't look down at your screen or angle your screen, so you must twist your neck.
You may have to put the screen on a pile of books or on a cardboard box to raise it to a comfortable viewing position.

If your only friends are your friends at work, it'll be more challenging to avoid work on evenings and weekends. If you do have coworkers as close friends, consider setting some boundaries around work talk.
Try to avoid getting drawn into office drama, as it will increase the time you spend talking and thinking about work.
Speak up when your workload is too much. Tell your boss if you are stretched too thin or when you regularly work too many hours. Talk about what you can reasonably get done in a week.
Also, don't say yes to everything. If you have a hard time saying no, don't respond immediately. Instead say, "Let me get back to you", or, "Let me think about that."
