Anyone else at home for the duration, getting projects done?

I'm working from home and trying to stay sane. As time goes on I'll try to get some projects in. Hopefully I'll get out to the woods soon, just waiting on a nagging injury to sufficiently heal and the weather to warm up (whichever is first, one of two is enough!).

Right now I'm grateful I work for a nonprofit that's keeping us all on at full pay and letting us work from home.

I work mostly from home, by choice. But now that's the only option, I find the loss of once-a-week personal contact with my clients and colleagues is messing with my motivation and focus. That and, you know, the gut-wrenching news over the last week.

I'm finding it helps to make a list of bite-size tasks that I can accomplish in short order. Ticking them off gives me some sense of accomplishment and the day is not wasted.

It's also massively important to get exercise. I live on an acreage with a (frozen) garden, and there are 10,000 positive and useful things to do. So, I'm forcing myself to get outside and work up a good sweat. Even if it's only splitting wood or cleaning up post-winter debris in some corner.

Working from home too. Not very productive compared to the office. My home office is no where near as optimised as my office one. I could bring things over, but my desk is too small. Bringing the work desk over seems to be a bit overkill for now. Don't have much space for it anyways.

Getting projects done is a bit tricky

Workwise, I am retired. But I am assuming you mean DIY and home improvement projects

The main thought these days is not to need a hospital or entangling youreslef with anyone else. So, after finishing one bathroom outside the house(needed for my daughter; she is a doctor and needs to change and sterilize before coming inside the house). After this project, I am stopping any unnecessary activity, especially those that can result in injury.
