Although this measure seeks to avoid contagion, we must adapt our house and routines to avoid damaging our budget and well-being
Working from home is an increasingly frequent activity. The coronavirus pandemic continues forcing many companies and workers to continue with the social distancing implemented to stop the contagion.
In the last four months, some 220,000 people have carried out remote work, a special form of service provision where computer and telecommunication means are used, but without leaving home.
Antonella Galli, Psychologist at the Clínica Ricardo Palma, says that it is necessary to balance the time between helping your children with virtual classes, housework, and work responsibilities. “You always have to prioritize the family (their education, needs, etc.), but for this, you have to define schedules and routines to concentrate better and be more efficient in the workplace. Doing home office does not mean that we are going to be glued to a computer all day”, she says.
The author of the book “Se Feliz” advises parents to keep daily communication and divide the housework, buy medicine and food, etc.
