Hi Syed, it's been a tough couple of week so far but things are looking up right now.

Working from home for me is usually awesome. I can get a lot done because I don't have nearly as many interruptions as I would in an office (although it does feel good to pop in the office often).

This has not been the case in recent times though as my house is now always packed with family. Here's what works for me:

  • Pushing all tasks that require deep concentration to 2 am (almost everyone is asleep by now)
  • Work on the easier ones during the day whenever I can find the time (I'm taking it easy)
  • Most importantly, take a nap at around 4 pm - 7 pm. This allows me to wake up at 2 am feeling refreshed
  • Frequent short walks around my neighbourhood. Not so many people want to risk walking so the streets are empty. I understand that not everyone can do this so I'd substitute with light indoor exercises once or twice a week.

These are tough times but we can find silver linings and use the free time to bond with family or work on personal skills. We could all come out of this better versions of ourselves ❤️.
