I return to my place of work today. Our Regional Director decided I would be one of the few staff allowed in the building to keep things running. We have had multiple staff quit to join the private sector in the past few months, and at this point I am one of the few clinical staff left who can do things like sign commitment papers. I am glad we have quite a few applicants for the vacant positions, but the virus slowed down the hiring process.
Working in the office is just fine as far as I am concerned. I really dislike working from home. I need a separation between work and home for my own sanity, a reasonable “work/life balance” not possible when I am at home. This way I can turn off my computer at the end of the day and drive home and leave work at work.
How do you (or did you) maintain a reasonable work/life balance? What happens if you don’t?
