The Work-From-Home Tips Real Simple Editors Swear By
Working from home isn’t for everyone, but the last few months of lockdown, social distancing, and precautions against spreading COVID-19 have forced most office workers to switch to full-time remote work anyway. Working from home comes with many luxuries, but it also has its own challenges—including managing motivation and focus while surrounded by the comforts of home.
In the last two to three months, most people new to the WFH life probably have developed their own working from home tips.

With that in mind, Real Simple’s editors have shared the tips, tricks, and hacks they’ve picked up over the last three months of working from home. Whether you’re working from home and managing childcare at the same time, struggling to adjust to working in a small space without a home office, or otherwise adjusting to this new reality, read on for the methods our editors are trying.
