What is your biggest discovery or learning after a full week (for many of us) of WFH, social-distancing, self-quarantine, or self-isolation?

Best guest discovery/revelation for me was that life is way bigger than work and how fortunate I am to be healthy, isolate myself and have a job that lets me work from home.

I sincerely thank the healthcare workers, doctors, nurses, paramedics and the store clerks, the bank personnel and countless others who are still working despite the epidemic. 👏👏👏

Love it so much. I’m more content on the weekends / evenings now that I can finally focusing on me and what I want / need. Don’t have to go to birthday brunches and bars at night, and don’t have to throw
money at pointless shit. Realized that I also should cut down the number of friends I keep in touch w/ bc I noticed that I’m constantly going to things for people when I really don’t want to be

Shower and put on real clothes first thing in the morning. Otherwise you’ll find yourself still in pajamas at 6pm

I love spending time with my husband. But he told me to give it another week. 🙄

I could get used to this. Never going to the office again is not too bad of an idea.

Unfortunately, it took a pandemic to force us to use muscles we should have exercised before - remote working and collaboration, basic hygiene.

I sincerely get horrible anxiety from being so isolated. This isn’t for me

Honestly opposite for me . My client is 100% video chat even before all this and it makes it worse for me personally. I need just in person interaction I guess. Thanks for the support though - it’s appreciated

MC3, recently got a bosch dishwasher and it is very quiet. A lot of the times I have to listen to ensure it is running.

Didn’t realize how much I enjoyed seeing and talking to my coworkers. Don’t know what you got till it’s gone!

I really should start doing IF but it’s such a challenge to do this when I am home by myself all day!! That should be my new goal 😁

If you want to stop snacking, keep a giant jug of water by you.

Would love some gift suggestions for the husband. He’s been super amazing and I wanna get him something super nice for our 4th year anniversary. Can’t do vacays or experiences because of the Covid and new baby combination! Don’t know if it helps, but he enjoys fancy gifts, not into drinking or smoking or gaming!Trying to keep it under the $500 ish range if possible!(Fully aware that it won’t get me something super fancy)

Any suggestions? I’ll owe anyone that’ll help out! 😅

So this whole mask thing has made me realize how much I rely on reading lips. I’m hearing impaired and basically in this new world I just have to guess what the cashier says. I’m pretty sure I answered “plastic” to the question, “did you find everything ok.” Pretty much say “what” twice then just guess. I think it wouldn’t be well received to ask them to take their mask down when they talk to me.
