Working from home. Those of us who are used to working in the office everyday, only dream about being able to get out of bed in a few short steps and ‘be at work.’ Well, now almost every company world-wide has issued a work from home policy for the foreseeable future.
Remote time has been a part of the Figmints culture since our inception. It’s likely you’ll see each employee take one day per week to work from home and we all work remotely the first Wednesday of each month. We love it.

Like we said, we’ve been working remote for years. Here are some things we do as a team to help us throughout the work day…at home.

Now that’s a lot of time without a variety of people, places and things to see and interact with. Here’s what we’re doing when we’re not working to keep us from going bonkers and find solace in this crazy time.
Here are just a few of our favorite memes and videos that have come out in the past week. There’s a silver lining to everything, right?
