You might not longer have to wear pants, but working from home has the same potential to overwhelm you and lead to burnout, just like working in an office. What's more, because we don't know when this pandemic will be over, having no end in sight can make your new work-from-home reality even more grueling, CNN reports. Those sensing a work-life imbalance to their days should create a set schedule and stick to it, allotting time for both their job and recreation. If the strain of quarantine is leading you to feel lonely, be more deliberate with your social interactions and try new ways of interacting with people, such as by setting up a Slack channel or doing a quick video-chat check-in through Zoom.
