In this podcast I talk to two women, Melissa Kirk and Mimi Heft, who normally work at home to get some tips for the rest of us who are suddenly now doing that.
We discussed the common advice; set up a dedicated work space, work regular hours, get out of you pajamas, resist sleeping in, create productive routines and set boundaries with family and friends so they don’t disturb you when you’re working. That last one is important because people tend to assume that if you work from home, you’re free to chat or visit anytime.
I was curious about whether working at home had changed for them since so many people who aren’t used to it are doing it with varying degrees of success. We also talked about dealing with the stress of the coronavirus situation and how we should go easy on ourselves.
