If you had an office job before this pandemic began, you’re likely considering whether or not you should work from home, if you’re not already. In either case, have you put some thought into the effect that working from home may have on you and your home? One simple but effective way to make sure you’ve covered everything is to think about the routines you had when working from an office.
For example, did you have a favorite breakfast spot or coffee shop that you would drop by on the way to work? While you’d likely be saving money by making your own breakfast or coffee, how much time, effort, and utility usage is happening to keep that routine going?
Your office probably had higher-quality furniture and technology than your home does. Did you need to invest in a more ergonomic chair, a standing desk, or a new web camera? These two examples of things to think about may be helpful to you!
