1. Buy a standing desk. 2. Include movement in your day like taking a walk or doing YouTube yoga. 3. If you are an extrovert be intentional about spending time with or around people

Make sure you have a start and end to your work day. If you’re able to have a dedicated space / office think of it as “closed”. Jumping on for a quick task here or there is one thing, but it can become a habit and you need to be able to shut it down

I was going to goto a shared work space , but I’m on the phone most of the day so I really can’t haha

- If you are not given one, buy a work computer and use it for nothing but work. Nothing else. Dont log into google on it, dont bring up personal email on it. Nothing but work.

I have seen people lose 6 figure jobs with 6 figure retirements because they didnt understand how screen sharing worked. Or forgot what email they were on and sent something personal from a work email. Ive seen people fired for job hunting on their personal computer at home that was hooked up to the company VPN, given the company access to their web activity and search history.

If you log into your google account Chrome will "pre fetch" past searches it be "helpful". So that thing you searched for last night to relax...yeah, that just went through he company servers. I have seen one person fired and multiple professionally embarrassed by this.

A decent NUC will cost $300-$500. Worth every dime. Pair it with its own monitor, a nice webcam (1080p) and a decent microphone (Amazon basics for $50).

Seriously, dont mix personal and work IT. You want your brain to say "Im on my work computer".

That’s helpfully -

Im a RN and took on a new role working in Home Health. I chose this position because My husband & I recently moved to PA with our 2 kids (1&3), with no family available for his residency program with a hospital. If you know that life, I’m pretty much the main parent for our kids. I don’t want to work in the hospital/floor work anymore; nor do I believe the hrs are flexible enough. I need a job that’s flexible for the kids but pays >$44/hr. Maybe remote or hybrid? Please help w/ suggestions.

To the Linked In "hackers":

1. Some of us mind if you added me, then go on to add my other connections.

2. If you're based in another country and you change your location so you can start making "international" connections, please don't do that. Creeps me out.

It's a powerful networking tool, but if you're in it to just get followers, you're not going to be getting strong leads from your network.
