Many people are now working from home for the first time because of the global coronavirus pandemic. Surprisingly, you may find that you’re tired all the time even though you now have less commuting to deal with in your day. This could be for a number of different reasons. For example, it could be because you no longer have the ability to choose what you want to do, so adding choices like when your meeting times are can help.
- Working at home can be exhausting because you’ll need to think about things at home that were automatic at the office. You know where everything is at the office and how to use all of the programs.
- When you work from home it is obvious that you will miss both your friends and your co-workers. Working at home will lead to a lot of social isolation so start using video and group chats.
- While it is important to get information about coronavirus so you can understand how to protect yourself, don’t obsess over it as it will only cause you increased stress and anxiety.
