How many weeks has it been now? I've lost count. Sadly, it looks as if we'll be riding out the pandemic longer than anticipated. Business are required to shut down again and we just found out that the kids won't be returning to school in the fall. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't grappling with all kinds of emotions these days but the better part of me is determined to stay positive. I recently spent some time designing a proper office for myself (and the kids) - separate from the dining room table, where I'd been running my business for as long as we've lived in our home. I love it and still wonder why it took me this long to do it. In a time where things feel so heartbreakingly chaotic, this space is a little slice of happiness and give me the organization and sanity I need. I hope you are all hanging in there too and most importantly, staying healthy . . .

    Yeah, it’s frustrating for sure, but as someone who already led the WFH life, I’ve been enjoying having my husband also working from home. My studio was pretty functional already, but now with increased video calls, I’ve been thinking about making it a bit more aesthetically pleasing, too.

    Would you consider doing a post on how to set up the thread holder on your pegboard? I need that arrangement!

    What a fascinating and fantastic article. Although each of us has a range of interests, none of them can match the thrill of playing online casino games. To learn how to start play minimum deposit casinos online in Canada, click this link. A casino could be enjoyable to hang around at if the minimum deposit is low enough. Everything, though, also has a shadow. Consider the two considerations before deciding where to place your wager. You’ll be able to do this and save time, money, and stress.

    WFH or Work From Home has become a popular concept in recent years, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic forced many companies to shift to remote work. WFH allows employees to work from the comfort of their own homes, eliminating the need for daily commutes and providing more flexibility in work schedules.

    One of the benefits of WFH is that it can increase productivity and efficiency. Without the distractions of a busy office environment, employees can often focus better and get more done in less time. Additionally, employees who work from home often report feeling more relaxed and less stressed, which can lead to improved mental health and job satisfaction.

    Another advantage of WFH is the flexibility it provides. Employees can often choose their own work hours, allowing them to balance their work and personal lives more easily. This is especially helpful for those who have children or other caregiving responsibilities.

    However, WFH is not without its challenges. It can be difficult to maintain a work-life balance when working from home, and employees may find themselves working longer hours or feeling like they are “always on.” Additionally, communication can be more challenging when working remotely, and it can be harder to collaborate and build relationships with colleagues.

    Overall, WFH has become an increasingly popular trend that offers many benefits to both employees and employers. However, it is important to consider the potential challenges and to establish clear communication and expectations to ensure success in a remote work environment.
