I've seen a few posts so far on RC from people sharing how they decompress/use their downtime, but one issue that I find regularly challenging and have not found a standard solution for is striking work-life balance in a remote environment 🤖
While there are advantages to working asynchronously remote (ex. you can step away when you need to run an errand), being connected online makes it feel harder to disconnect. We certainly see more think pieces being written about the psychological impacts, but I'm curious to learn directly from you - how is everyone handling their situations? Do you have any best practices to recommend on how to have more balance?
Personally, I've been lucky to have an understanding wife and kids who're able to physically attend school (for now). But I know I test their limits when I'm constantly on my computer or phone (for work purposes, of course 😂). Maybe it's more being a founder than working remotely? Regardless, after 2 years of remote work, I recently agreed with my wife that weekends should be device free. FYI, we just finished Weekend 1 and she gave me a B+ (I pulled out the laptop when the three of them decided to take a nap...).
