Why you should Attend: In the wake of a global pandemic, a high amount of uncertainty exists over how long workers will need to remain home or remote in some fashion. Even after stay at home orders are lifted, many companies will opt to keep their workers home for health safety reasons. Some companies will keep their workers remote as they realize financial benefits during their economic recovery process. And, a few companies in industries that can thrive having employees work remotely will remain so well after the threat of the virus goes away and financial losses are recouped. What does this mean for you, the remote worker? It translates to a present condition of meeting the challenges of balancing tasks, emotions, and thoughts in the same environment that you sleep, gather with family and friends, and experience personal joy.Some are better than others at balancing these areas of life.Many, however, find it difficult. You may become distracted and not be able to accomplish work goals. Alternatively, you might work too much and neglect your family and personal life, right from within your own home. These are two highly common "out of balance" complaints of individuals who work from home. Without proper tools to help workers remain aware, balanced and fully integrated in both work and personal life, chaos looms, even pathology for some.
