Things we’ve learned working from home - The Verge News

We asked The Verge staff members about what they’d learned about working at home. In response, people talked about the need to get away from the desk and to get away from work, the challenges of working in the same space with family, and various strategies for staying sane while staying in the house.

When we started working from home in March 2020, many of us who had not worked at home before may have begun with certain assumptions about what it would be like and what we would need. It’s now over two years later, and while we’re now able to spend time in the office, most of us are spending the majority of our working time at home.

We asked The Verge staff members about what they’d learned about working at home. In response, people talked about the need to get away from the desk and to get away from work, the challenges of working in the same space with family, and various strategies for staying sane while staying in the house.

Here’s what they told us.

OK, I’ll admit it — I’m stubborn. I spent two years of the pandemic waiting for things to return to just the way they were, sitting at my dining table-turned-workstation editing videos all day. It was an ergonomic nightmare that I figured would all be over soon when we went back to the office.

We have a spare room, but that’s where my wife works. I figured, at some point, we’d split the space, but last month, she got a job that is 100 percent remote. So I decided to give in and finally turn the dining corner into an edit suite. And now, I love it. I bought a new desk, arranged things just as I wanted them to be, and unsurprisingly, my attitude has changed. It helps that I can go into the actual office from time to time, but having a place at home that I actually like to work in makes all the difference in the world. — Matt Morales, video producer
