Work From Home
Every month we choose 3 Spotify designers and get on their wavelength. They get 3(ish) sentences to share their thoughts ranging from goings-on in design and tech, perspective on user experience challenges, to hot button topics for them right now.
What tips can you share after working from home for 90+ days?

Casual crit and feedback—without someone's shoulder to tap on, it's easy to lose sight of how important an informal and quick bit of feedback is.
Work-in-progress docs to keep track of new changes and why decisions were made. A savior for when the days feel like they're all mushed together.
An after work routine is just as important as a morning routine. Know when to close your laptop, schedule in a walk, chat with a friend—something bright to sunset the workday.

You did more than you think you did – write down everything you did at the end of the day and revel in your at-home productivity.
It feels nice to scream-sing LA LA LALA LA LAAA once in a while (try also: DAA DADAADA DAA).
