Like so many people, I’m working from home. There are four humans and a dog living here. Thankfully, our house is big enough that I can usually find a quiet spot for a call or to think. However, I don’t expect the rest of the family to stop living.

Everyone’s work-from-home situation will be unique. Some people won’t have the space to be separate from everyone else in their home. You might even see the odd cat walk in front of the camera.

Enjoy the additional connection made possible by the occasional family interruption. The reality is that family life is now tightly intertwined with people’s working life. The bonus is that connection is a powerful ally in reducing stress.

You might even find you miss this extended family connection when you get back to the office one day.

You’ve got this.
