COVID-19 has upended every aspect of our life, including the way we work. For many office workers who are fortunate to remain employed during this period, that can mean working from home for the foreseeable future. That in itself comes with its challenges, as we’ve discussed in previous episodes. But add other household members to the mix—whether that be spouses, children, siblings, or roommates—and it’s a whole new dilemma altogether.

On this week’s episode of Secrets Of The Most Productive People, Anisa Purbasari Horton and Pavithra Mohan discusses their experience working from home while their significant others are also doing the same. They also speak with Dr Rachel Sussman a New York-based licensed family and marriage therapist and relationship expert, to speak about what couples, parents, and roommates can do to take care of their mental health while keeping their relationships strong. Scott Mebus, head of video and podcasts for Fast Company and Inc, will also make an appearance to talk about what it’s like to be a parent during this time.
