How to deal with isolation when you are working from fome
Working alone sounds great. No one steals the last cup of coffee, and there’s no boss telling you to get to work. There’s one big catch. Remote workers often suffer from isolation. You may have limited opportunities to interact with others. This can become quite uncomfortable after a while. Before you start talking to your plant, take control of the situation.
Isolation and remote work don’t have to go hand-in-hand. With a little planning, you can find plenty of people to share part of your day. You don’t have to suffer just because you’ve decided to work at home. There are options for enjoying regular human contact. Take advantage of them and leave your isolation behind.
Sorry folks, I love cats and have several of my own; but dogs do make better social partners. ↩
