Additional advice for remote workers

I wrote a post in December called “Advice for remote workers” and thought it would be worth expanding a bit on it given the current global crisis.

Getting outside and going for a walk are, in my opinion, essential. Unless your situation restricts you otherwise, getting some fresh air is going to make a huge difference in your health and well being. So do it!

Obviously use your best judgment here. I live in the suburb of a Canadian city so if I go for a walk I’ll easily be able to keep an appropriate distance from anyone I come across. That might not be the case for everyone. And please is you have any sort of symptoms stay at home!

The other thing worth noting for people adjusting to remote work is to use video on your calls. Video calling makes a massive difference. In fact, once this all settles down, I imagine a lot more people are going to be taking advantage of remote work.
