COVID-19 rearranged life on a worldwide scale almost two years ago, and many of us are still navigating working from Home Easier and the unique stresses that come with it. This trend of remote work will most certainly continue for years to come. According to a recent FlexJobs survey, 58 percent of the 4,612 people polled want to be entirely remote after the pandemic, while 39 percent prefer a hybrid schedule, meaning that 97 percent of respondents want to continue working remotely in some capacity.
Fortunately, a lot of new technology has been launched in the last few years, as well as some older technology that is finding new life in these modern times, making WFH setups more, well, functional. It’s easy to lose track of time when you’re living in a remote location. Things appear to flow at weird, fluid rates now that many of our external time markers have been eliminated (such as going to work or visiting coworkers for lunch at the workplace).
My 3- and 4-year-old sons are conducting Home schooling with their mother in the living room while I’m working remotely. My kids take advantage of the opportunity to leap down from their work table and hang onto my legs whenever I have to ask my wife a question or run out to get a snack or a drink of water.
