🧠 Foo Anyone else starting to feel burned out by working from home? Most of my friends seem to be loving it, but I feel like I'm in the minority and enjoy going into the office a few times a week.

🚴 Aditya I'm there for sure. Also, I lost my monitor, keyboard etc overnight, so not ideal.

📀 Rob We only quarantined for 1 month in my state. I was burned out immediately. My gym was also closed which was hell. My saving grace was the occasional call to go into the office to do something. So yeah I feel you man.

🗨️ Fui As the ancient Greeks would have it, "Nothing in Excess". Too much WFH has its trade-offs, some of them can be bad. Not everyone is cut for that.

📬 Chris Brandrick A little, I'd like to be in the office at least one day a week just for a break in routine.

😏 Yt L. What I'd prefer most is certainty about the state of things going forwards. I feel like I probably should build up a good home office, then I could be quite comfortable working from home, but I haven't done that yet, so I'm not that comfortable.

🌚 Nlggers If I recall correctly there was some work done a few years ago on the topic of a sort of "spacial association" that takes place in your mind. I believe the researchers who looked at this concluded there were different "mental modalities" depending on the associated activity of a space. Certainly if our home environments have differing associations it could go either way.

Joseph Gilmore Kind of similar to the studies that are always saying you should only use your bed for sleep and not work/watching TV because it makes falling asleep harder. I've never really had a problem with that one specifically but certainly with other spaces I feel it. There is also the social and communicative aspect of being in an office I somewhat miss

🥄 Inanutshellus It sucks. I don't get off the couch from 7:30a to 6:30p. disconnected from "the hive" of the workplace. I feel more like a cog. I have to be spoon-fed info I would've gathered naturally by env.

Joseph Gilmore I just started a new job and starting remotely has been pretty hard for me. I think my ideal would be coming into the office 2-3 days a week. I definitely focus better in the office but that might be because I don't have a good setup at home

🌌 Tom I definitely think a balance is needed. my current position is full time WFH and it certainly has its benefits, but I do miss the office environment from time to time
