The Problem

People are working and sleeping in the same spaces, diminishing the separation between working spaces and relaxing spaces.

Since the start of COVID-19, 42% of the US workforce is working from home full time. This is causing a large blur between a person's workspace and relaxation space, leading to an increase in stress and a decrease in sleep.

 

The Solution

By creating a modified workspace, we can help users separate their workspace from their relaxation space and help monitor their productivity while working from home.
