We have heard this mentioned a lot in discussions with colleagues and clients recently – and love the idea of a fake commute! For many of us working from home is set to stay (at least for part of the week). Whether you walk around the block and buy a coffee from your local cafe, or go for a cycle, it is important to have some time for yourself before you start your work day at home, and when you finish your day. 

The commute used to give us thinking time to prepare ourselves on the way to work, or to wind-down on the way home; we all need to find some tools to continue to do this, and a fake commute might be just the thing.  

What tricks and tips can you recommend to ensure your work day does not blur with your home and family time?
