Remote work doesn't necessarily mean that you have to communicate more. It just means that you have to communicate better. Depending on the profession, it may be possible to only have one weekly Zoom meeting and then communicate through
channels like email, Slack, or other chat programs. Every employee and employer should use the remote work experience to challenge themselves to be more efficient communicators. This is an important skill that will serve you well throughout your career and life.
With some exceptions, most remote work positions come with schedule flexibility, where as long as certain deadlines are met and work gets done, managers don't hold workers to the typical 9-to-5 arrangement. If you can factor in your professional and personal needs, you can
potentially build a schedule that works best. This may not happen overnight, so it's okay to try out different scheduling blocks and routines as you try to find out what works (as long as it also works for your employer).
With remote work, you have a lot more freedom to make changes that can positively impact your physical and mental well-being. A simple change in scenery for the day can also do wonders for your mood, whether it's enjoying the calm of your backyard or the hustle and bustle of a local coffee shop.
