Is anyone else finding it really difficult to be motivated to get work done at home? I'm a lab based researcher and the work I am doing from home isn't directly helping me progress my project further so it's making it hard to want to do it. I'm feeling quite lost to be honest and feel like I'm in a constant cycle of not doing much and then feeling guilty about it and so on.

How is everyone else getting on? Does anyone have any tips to help encourage productivity or to not feel so guilty about not getting so much done?

Have you spoken to your supervisor about how you're feeling? Does your university have only guidance on what to do in your lab-less situation?

I am having the same problem. I am also mainly experimental and am at a total loss of what to do. I think I have lost my work routine and default to being lazy around the house. I am going back to my parents for a few weeks to find a new rhythm and work/life balance. I will tell you if I have any success.
