Today I present to you my 10 tips for working from home. I usually work from home at least once a week (before this whole pandemic thing started), just to keep a better work life balance so that I don't have to do all my adult/life/house things on the weekends. It feels a little bit like I've been preparing myself for this whole time actually 😅I took a lot of inspiration from Ingrid Nilsen's video on her tips for working from home (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDgckuEAqLQ), which I learned a lot from when I was first starting to have regular work from home days. If you have any tips of your own, let me know in the comments down below!
I feel very lucky to have a job where I can work from home and not be too impacted job-wise by the pandemic. I know others haven't been so lucky, so I hope that you all are practicing compassion and being there for each other during this time. This too shall pass (so long as we each do what we can to make this thing pass fast) 💖
