Its spring, you’re probably spending more time at home, why not take spring cleaning to the next level? Cross off items on your general home improvement list, and then make some time to spruce up a space for yourself. But where to start?
On a normal day, working from home poses challenges, especially when it is unexpected. Many people aren’t readily equipped with a work computer, speedy wi-fi, or even an at-home workspace.

The low hum of office chatter that keeps you on pace, the solitude of a private office, and your normal routines are not there to keep you on track. Things at home likely won’t match up to the norm, and that’s okay. With a little focus and a few mindset adjustments, navigating the new forced “work from home” normal is manageable, and you can stay right on track (or as close as possible).
