The transition from returning home after work to see your spouse to practically becoming co-workers and spending all day together will put many relationships to the test. Here are some tips on how to maintain a healthy work-life balance and remain productive while working at home: 

Customize your Space

If you and your partner are now working from your homes, try and maintain a similar work schedule and space. Set up a desk area that is similar to one you had at the office with all of the essentials within reach. If it’s too distracting or cramped working side by side, set up separate work spaces. This way, you can come together for breaks, remain productive, and keep in touch with a routine similar to when you went into work.

Reconnect During Breaks

Use lunchtime and other breaks throughout the day to connect with your partner. We may all be in close physical proximity to one another, but that does not mean checking in for updates needs to cease. It can be far too easy to skip on breaks while working from home- so set a time to reconnect during the day and stick to it!

Power Off

It is rather tempting to put in overtime when your office is just a few steps away. Treat this time as a normal work day by turning off the computer at your usual clock-out hour. Once work is done, proceed with your regular activities after hours such as sharing a meal or watching an episode of your favorite show together. 

We’ve all got to get used to this new normal. By implementing a few new changes, we are sure to gain a new rhythm and come out of this time refreshed and connected with those we love.
