Thank you for this article. There are currently 5 of us schooling and working from home. Despite the fact that the children all have desks in their bedrooms and we have a dedicated study, they are happier setting up around the dining table. As lovely and motivating as this is, there is a bit of a mess to clear before dinner. As my online meetings are fairly high level, it doesn't seem professional to me to be there so I move into our study for those.

This weekend we are planning to do some rearranging to accommodate all the work and these tips will be great to remember.

Our dining table is the hub of choice too. Sounds like a lot of thinking has gone into your arrangements. I'm glad the tips are useful to you!

Some great tips and reminders in here. Making boundaries between my home and work life is what concerns me most about shifting to working from home as a therapist. Think I'll be using our outdoor space to mobilise myself and shake off any residue from heavy calls as needed. I liked the tip about the importance of having face to face ie video meetings with colleagues wherever possible. This article has got me thinking, thanks!
