Dear Dr. Mimi:
I am working from home, and the hours that I am working are crazy. Does working from home mean working longer hours?
Only if you’re doing it wrong! How much you work should relate to the job you have or the project you are working on, not if you are working remotely or not. Some people work more hours remotely because they aren’t good at setting boundaries or they are new to remote work and haven’t adjusted yet. Minimize distractions as much as possible. Make a to-do list, track your working time, and when you are done, stop working!
