Working from home was formerly a luxury attainable by only a handful of people in the workforce. However, as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, working from home (or WFH for short) became the new norm for many employees who formerly believed that remote work was unrealistic in their careers. Consequently, both personal routines and work procedures had to be substantially revised to accommodate this progressive lifestyle. The concept of widespread working from home decisively blended the boundary between work and home life, creating the need for modernized daily practices. Those who teeter on the blurry line of hybrid scheduling (some days at home, some days in the office) often equally struggle to find a sufficient work-life separation.
Working from home is a lot like getting in shape. It sounds awesome at first, but once you get started, it becomes a little frustrating, very uncomfortable and increasingly hard to stay motivated. So, if you're like me, you've struggled to adjust to the work from home life. So here are some tips for how to stay motivated and focused. Plus a few for how to step away and keep a healthy work/ life balance. I hope you find these helpful!
