Working From Home During COVID-19? Use These Tips to Make It Through the Day

Whether you’re used to remote work or experiencing it for the first time due to COVID-19, one thing is generally agreed upon: working from home can be tricky. From carving out a suitable place to get your work done, to successfully avoiding distractions, to knocking out your tasks, working remotely can be a delicate balancing act. Thankfully, these apps can make your day-to-day a little bit easier when you’re working from home.


No matter what field of work you’re in, it’s likely that your job requires a lot of day-to-day personal interaction.

Upload fun backgrounds and take your video conference up a notch! Zoom is also useful for simple, straightforward messaging, for when your team doesn’t require face-to-face meetings. Free versions of Zoom are available for PC, Mac, web, iOS, and Android.
