If You're Working From Home Right Now, What Tips Do You Have For Making It Less Stressful?

Ha ha ha remember work/life balance??

Hey guys. If you're reading this, there's a huge chance that you, too, are living that WFH life while the coronavirus outbreak is happening.

Pros of working from home: - No pants - Loud music Cons of working from home: - You have to make your own coffee - You talk to yourself too much

And it's also highly likely that you aren't home alone. Maybe you've got a roommate (or two), live with a partner, or have your kids at home as well.

Whatever your shared living situation is, I'm guessing it's been feeling pretty...cramped, especially if not everyone has their own home office!

For example, if you have kids at home with your partner, are you guys rotating "shifts" so that one person can focus on work at a time?

Is there an unspoken agreement between you and your roommies to use headphones for all video conference calls?

Or, uh, to stay fully dressed?

Or maybe you've made yourself an improvised workstation/home office setup because you just can't stand working in bed all day.

Can we do a WFH workspace setup thread, unglamorous edition? My partner and I are both working from our studio apartment. My setup is a chair in front of the front door and my desk is our clothes hamper.
