How’s your work-from-home situation going?
There’s a good chance you’ve been at it for several months now. And while it has plenty of perks, the challenges remain. Plus, like everyone else, you’re just plain old tired of this pandemic and its restrictions.
Try to stay positive and look at the bright side. And whether you love or hate working from home, continue to max out your productivity and stay sane when dealing with:
Too Many Virtual Meetings
Zoom fatigue is a real thing. It’s the tiredness, worry, or burnout associated with the overuse of virtual communication platforms. Participating in these meetings can be draining after a while because you have to physically work harder to keep looking at other attendees.
It’s natural to feel like you should be getting more work done at home. After all, you don’t have to spend time commuting, nor are you lingering in the hallway chatting with colleagues. Performance guilt may be even more extreme if you’re at home and some of your coworkers are in the office.
Don’t beat yourself up. Block off time for breaks during the day. Spend them by enjoying a favorite non-work related activity, such as reading, listening to music, or completing a short yoga video.
The Everyday Distractions of Home
The kids are hungry. The dog wants to go out. Your next-door neighbor saw your light on and calls to chat. Suddenly, another half hour has slipped away. Yikes.
Working from home can be great for thinking and concentrating, but it can feel too quiet or lonely without anyone else around after a while.
It all comes down to this, right? It was true when you went to the office five days a week, and it rings even truer now.
