The hardest part of isolation for me has been not spending time with others and struggling to find a boundary to switch on/off from work since the bedroom has also become the office.
Our company always supported remote work so I had a nice balance of home-to-office days, but going zero contact hours has been surprisingly tough. Video calling is no replacement for time with work friends either.

If you have issues with the on/off part, It's good practice to set up a space dedicated to work only. If you have a laptop that means moving out of spaces you relax in. If you don't have the option of an extra work room, move to a quiet cafe to get your work done.
