Staying Sane While Working From Home Is Changing Us

The COVID-induced social and economic hit experienced by young professionals could make for a difficult recovery.

In your home, there’s probably a table, covered with your mail, your office work, a laptop, maybe a leftover plate from your lunch. Maybe your keys and bag are on a chair, along with your kid’s favorite toy or a cardboard box containing your latest online order.

Sound familiar?  

In this moment, so many of us are working from home a lot more — to have a job is certainly a privilege in and of itself — but still, there’s a new kind of work grind emerging as we all bring our work to our homes.

Listen: Work and play while at home is changing our habits.


Amanda Mull is a staff writer for The Atlantic and she wrote a piece about this work from home conundrum and the toll it’s taking on all of us.

The lines between personal and professional time get very blurry, explains Mull, and it’s hard to unwind when the office and the dining room table are one in the same. Mull explores the implications of this new normal on our minds and our bodies, our social lives and our finances.
