If work is at home, when do you get out?

Good work provides meaning. But for many working in an office, it also provides connection with other humans. The connection is simply not the same when working from home.

But as many more people transition office work to be at home work, hopefully the work will still provide meaning for you, but is there something else to fill the social gap?

Perhaps we will stay home more during the work day, but get out for workouts with others or simply in the fresh air, or do more volunteer activities as a group or other activities.

One thing about work is that it is a forcing mechanism. There’s someone holding you accountable. Some of us struggle to force ourselves to do the same for something purely social. It might take finding some outside forcing mechanism to bring us to our best, most happiest selves while working from home.
