Culturally, trust in your team is everything – clock-watching is toxic. Work hours expand, so scheduling personal time like work time is important: own your day and make the space to replenish, whether free time, family time, or exercise. Treat collaboration software as a friend, letting you contribute when you’re at your best, rather than as a means for endless video calls – because the Zoom fatigue is real.
Space matters. A sofa isn’t an office, so it’s worth investing in a setup that’s clearer, brighter and more inspiring: fresh air and good light work miracles. If you can’t, grab your phone, go 1980s and make that meeting a walk-and-talk.
Finally, work life has so much to offer, from great friends to great goss. So just because you’re working from home it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make time for the softer stuff, too. Remember, you’re in charge of when to lean in, and when to have a little more space. That’s the real secret to working from home: a mute button, and a door you can shut.
