Abstract

In the current work environment, where a large number of us are now working remotely from our homes, how good are we at identifying when enough work is enough, or do we have trouble detaching from work and calling it a day? I often idealised working from home uninterrupted and how productive I would be, but this is not the case in our new remote working environment. Many now find that formal and ad-hoc meetings can now continue virtually and we are permanently accessible and "always on". Working from home is no longer the peaceful uninterrupted space where we can get some concentrated work completed, and it probably never will be again in a post Covid-19 workplace.
