Working From Home

A lot of people are now working from home quite a bit due to the pandemic. It can be great at times (you can wear your pajamas! But, I guess most of us wear pajamas (aka scrubs) to work every day…) but there are definite challenges as well. I’m not great at it, but I’m getting better. For me, the biggest challenge are those days when the rest of my family is home as well. Jennifer Kanapicki Comer, MD wrote a really great piece for the Academic Life in Emergency Medicine (ALiEM) blog recently called The 1440 Doctor: How to Unplug While Working From Home. She discusses the challenges of working from home and how to deal with them (who knew that the lack of a commute could be a problem?). I’m trying to implement a lot of them (including implementing the WFH Commute) on days when I’m at home working on fellowship stuff, or teaching stuff, or this blog for example. Check it out, I think you’ll find it helpful!
