In this first video of the Scientific Dream Life Blog (Vlog!), we receive five tips for working from home during the COVID-19 (or SARS-CoV-2) pandemic.
For those folks that prefer to read text, here are the main highlights from the video (with some humor, to lighten the mood, a bit):
Create a Work Routine
- Be sure to over-communicate with supervisors & peers
- If you have a family, be transparent about how you are juggling work with other family responsibilities, so bosses and co-workers are not blind-sided.
Set boundaries with children
- You may want to be a bit more flexible with screen time limits during this time.
- However, firmly establish your own “do not disturb” mode, so that your children know not to interrupt work activities.

When you feel pressured to over-extend yourself, (and push on), remember that it’s okay to take a break, so that you can feel refreshed when you are ready to return your attention to work.
Alternate shifts with your partner
Switch shifts with your partner, so that you may allow each other to have blocks of uninterrupted work time, as well as to take breaks for exercise, or some much-needed sleep!
That’s a wrap, folks! Hope you enjoyed the video!
