So yes, a lot of us are now at home. Whether you’re happy about it or not, you can’t deny that working from your own living room has its perks. I for one get to play with my dog for longer each morning. I don’t have to commute or rush out the door! Not only that, but the amount of ‘office cake’ has nearly tripled overnight.
But while we can indulge in home luxuries, there is still the other side of the coin that we may need to consider. Homelife may be a comfort zone to some, but for others, it may not be so straight forward. The work environment can sometimes act as a pause button; a break from our own ground. The focus, productivity and achievement we feel can often just be assigned to an office or a classroom. Basically . . . it can sometimes be difficult to combine home with work.
The main thing to remember though - this is an opportunity! Technology can be used in a variety of revolutionary ways to ensure we can make the most of our situation. There is a whole world of knowledge, challenge and opportunity out there. Most amazingly though, it can all come through one screen!
