Going remote for me is close to going for a walk in the 9th circle of Hell. Keeping the distance between my home and the office is essential and unbreakable. Until now.
At a time of a crisis, I consider myself lucky to have a job that allows me to work in the safety of my home, like it or not.
The home-office is a love and hate relationship - you either like it or not; it makes you more productive or throws you in a pit of desperation and endless binging on food.
But we have to adapt, right?
Planning is the key to successful adaptation, as well as changing your perspective towards your goal. Appreciate the fact that you are working in the software industry and the most "hard" action for you will be staying home for some time. Then jump into planning!
Sharing my critical points for how to stay sane in your remote work:
My new work-station (it was the home-station a few days ago)
The new home-station (it feels more like home, and I am using my personal laptop while I'm in "home" mode)

Staying home turns to be suitable for my YouTube skills - the lightning in the middle of the day is perfect for shooting cooking videos.
Stay sane, stay safe, be healthy and try to get the maximum from this situation! 🌿
PS: I asked my teammates to share with me their epic solutions for remote work environments, so this post may evolve.
