The Boundaries and Norms That We Used to Know

The Boundaries and Norms That We Used to Know
Working from home has blurred the line between personal and professional life. Maintaining boundaries has never been more important.

As it turns out, Zoom calls might be the window to the soul. When we hop on a virtual meeting, we see kids waddling through the background and what books are on people’s shelves. It’s humanizing and makes us more compassionate, but not all broken boundaries are as charming.

Many people report working more hours with fewer breaks when working from home, and it can even be hard to get out of your house. It’s time to reevaluate our personal boundaries.

This week, we discuss why communication, saying no, and taking time off is important to maintain boundaries in a virtual workforce.

  • 1 ounce yellow or green Chartreuse
  • 1 ounce Aperol
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice


  1. Add the mezcal, Chartreuse, Aperol, and lime juice to a cocktail shaker. Fill it with two handfuls of ice and shake it until cold.
