I'm shirtless except for zoom meetings. Makes for a low-stress environment with my nips out somehow.
For like all of 2021 I was basically in my underwear while working for at least the front half of the day but I swear to fuck looking back on it I felt so unproductive.

I'd still shower and go through my normal morning routine, I just wouldn't get dressed till around 10ish

Now I can't feel comfortable unless I'm at least in a shirt and shorts, I don't feel like I'm "productive" even if I'm doing the same amount of work. :rofl:

Worked out before lunch rather than before work as I started early today. :dunno:
What's your routine?

I always go before lunch, I'm up to 30min on the rower now daily without feeling like I'm gonna die. :rofl:

I save the harder shit for the actual gym after work on mon, weds, fri. :o

Normal is in the mornings on my remote days plus weekends. I know it sounds cliche but on remote days I do it in the time I'd normally spend it traffic.

Yeah I feel what you're saying. A lot of it is defo mental. I feel like I'm 20% less productive at home but who knows how I'd quantify it. All I know is my stress is half what it used to be when I was in the office.

Check out porn and masturbate at my desk. Technically, I could do that at the office but I'd be hearing from HR.

I'm way more productive at home than in the office but there's a point where I can get TOO comfortable.

All of 2020 I was a gem, I had the perfect routine and stuck to it. Then in 2021 I let that slip till I wasn't getting dressed till later in the day unless I had to.

Now I'm back to where I was in 2020 and feeling much better about it. Still much better off WFH than in the office. :o

Stress is a self-fulfilling procrastinating cycle for me - the more I stress, the more I worry about how to start a project, the further delayed I get. The stress reduction from being able to pick up my kiddo if I get an unexpected call from the school or take the cat to the vet on my lunch without worry is immeasurable, but I rarely miss any work deadlines like I used to.

I also go to way more doctor appointments and rarely (if ever) miss them; something I feel really needs to be addressed as we transitioned away from in-office to WFH. I canceled so many necessary blood draw appointments when I was working in the office because a surprise meeting would get dropped on my calendar 30 minutes before I had blocked out a pre-existing appointment, eliminating my cushion to actually get there in time. My health definitely suffered while working in such a toxic work environment.

Washed my car, and now calling the code enforcement officer because my cunt of a neighbor is expanding her driveway without a permit, after busting my balls for trying to put up a garage.

fucking cunt.
Provide a follow up on this. Post pictures of your pissed off neighbor going off on code enforcement.
