I have worked from home a day or two per week in previous jobs as a programmer and loved it but it's just not the same as working from home every day. So much has changed that I couldn't imagine without the experience.

My workstation is a recliner. I have a big monitor (tv) mounted on a pipe that I can swivel in close to my face. My keyboard tray is my lap and the arm of the chair is my mouse pad. People laugh at me when they see me in video meetings sitting in a recliner but I'm comfortable and not prone to napping.

I'd like to hear from others what has changed in their lives after working from home.

My main challenge was getting my sleep cycle right and sleeping enough. Over the last couple of months, I've made great progress in that regard. I sleep for 7-8 hrs now; if I can't and if that makes me tired during the day, I take 15-minute power naps, which are fantastic. This is something I could never do without remote work. I don't have video calls to attend, so I wake up, have tea and breakfast, and begin work leisurely--provided I don't have an early-morning or noon submission deadline. Been great these past couple of months, and I don't want to go back either :)

I have been working from home for more than 1 year, it's so amazing that I can complete my task better than the office. And I can spend more time with my families, I love WFH, it just makes everything wonderful! I personally suggest you to make a comfortable workstation which can boost your productivity a lot. I got mine half year ago, I have to say, it changes my life a lot. With the standing desk, I get less back pain and it seems to make me feel better.
Although WFH is great for most of us, we still need to take care of ourselves.
