First World problem Been traveling while working remote for a year now and think I’m getting super depressed about it ending. I don’t know how I’m going to go back to the office grind and not constantly moving.

Total newbie. Today the same work that took me 5 hours to complete took 1.5hr for a coworker. I’m keep seeing this pattern on different kinds of work, from research to formatting. And I‘m definitely not a perfectionist.. I don’t know what the issue is and how to be faster. Since we’re remote, its hard to gauge how others are working. Did anyone go through this?

Any recommendations for a hybrid robot vacuum in terms of price-performance Ratio or important buying criteria? WFH makes it necessary and I want to treat myself :). Key information: floor is parquet, so I guess it should have dry/wet/wiping functions, don’t have any pets, thought I want to spend 300€ max. but no clue if investing more is worth it. Highly appreciate any input :)!

Hi there ! Needing your experience ! I'm still fully wfh, packed with work and 10 hours call minimum/day, impacting my sleep. In september, I started working out with a trainer once a week, sometimes two if i can. My only social life is about going out for dinner (i try to walk before & after). At home i watch my food (healthy stuff, no snacking, low carbs) but i keep on putting on weight fast. Anyone solved a similar situation ? Eating less is just killing my energy... (and no, not pregnant!)

Question for fishes who love WFH and claim that they get to spend so much more time with friends and family b/c of it: do all your friends and family also WFH and have the same increased availability as you do? For instance, I WFH, but most of my family and friends still have to go to work due to the nature of their professions - so it's not like I can call my doctor friend or my electrical engineer friend and invite them to hang out during the day.

COVID WFH has put me several time zones away from my client (I’m further west and their culture is to start the day early anyway). It’s a new project so I don’t have relationships built up. How much pushback on morning meetings is reasonable? I know the project can’t operate totally around me but these start times aren’t sustainable...
