I’ll go first to get this started and set the general theme of this circle:
I work in an industry (Finance IT) where people tend to work from home about one day a week. It’s still viewed as a perk and when I’m working from home I always appreciate it because I don’t have to commute and I actually get more done. One day during lunch I went outside in the yard for about 30 minutes and my bosses’ boss instant messaged me while I was out. When he found out I was WFH he was not happy. I vowed not to let that happen again and I searched for some solution. I recently found wfhhelper.com. This is an application that runs in your browser and moves your mouse for you. It also notifies you when you need to get back to your computer based on detecting screen changes. Lastly it shows you what you missed while you were gone. Now if the baby is crying or the delivery man comes or even if I have to hop in the shower I have nothing to fear. My status is always ACTIVE and if someone messages me my computer alerts me instantly. This tool is excellent and I highly recommend it.
Other than that my laptop is essential while WFH. The portability aspect is great. I find using a desktop at home is too restricting.
Hope this helps someone! WFH rocks!
