On today’s episode, I talk about your working at home-life balance and looking after your wellbeing during this time of uncertainty. 

Needless to say, the COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenging time for all of us. One of the key things about this time is that there’s been little to no adjustment period. 

One day we were in a physical workspace or most of us were, and overnight, around 80% of us were told to work at home, or we weren’t working in safe environments with the equipment and health and safety guarantees that we needed. 

This impacts on where we draw the line and how we create that working at home work-life balance.
