I've worked remotely for all of my professional career! I started off working from a small corner desk in my bedroom while also having two young kiddos at home. I was out of my mind. Needless to say I learned my lesson and now have my own office. In my experience it's very important to be able to close the door and "shut work off" - similar to how employees that work in an office physically leave their work environment, commute home, etc.
Yes, I have a cat tower in my office. This crazy cat lady has 6 cats and having them sit at the window sniffing the fresh breeze is calming to me. As you can see I also like being surrounded by my favorite music, memories, and childhood trinkets. And of course, Seahawks swag plus my fantasy football trophy.
I work from home pretty frequently, but it's a whole new ball game doing it all day, erryday! I did just order a new desk chair, as per David, Steve and Gary's advice in this article. ( @NicoleJohnson got one, too!)
I chose this antique banquet because I can sit, stand, and pile it up with books and notepads... When I look at peoples' setups, I am always asking myself, "where are all the notebooks?" Don't y'all write anything down?!
Like @CristonS, I also worked from home occasionally, but had to upgrade the setup from my usual couch-location (I feel you, @MaddieJ...) after my little one claimed that for her zone. 🙂 So now, I'm in a corner of the kitchen, which would explain the butcher-block-cart-turned-desk and the wine on the bottom shelf. #dontjudgeme #itsfiveoclocksomewhere
