It’s been difficult, being cooped up in my home with my husband and kid without much time to plan or research how to effectively do it. I’ve worked from my kitchen island, my living room floor, and my backyard. There was a brief moment when my child was my desk because she insisted on laying across my lap and playing with the strings on my sweatpants for a half hour. I have a home office, but I set that up long before I became a parent/remote worker and didn’t realize that sharing a wall with a nursery might cause some problems for both of us.
I’ve written content for this blog for many years now, and I come across articles all the time that warn against working from bed. After a week of defaulting to my bed when every other space in my home feels overused, or taken over by a small child, I understand why.
Don’t use our products as your work space.
I’m improvising a lot right now, but the one space I refuse to sacrifice to work moving forward is my bedroom. We’re all learning how to work during a global pandemic, so take this tip seriously.
(I’d like to take this moment to exclude the Pouch from this PSA, as long as it lives somewhere outside of your bedroom.)
