1. Address the elephant in the room
Knowing what your partner does is one thing, but seeing them in action is another.
"We are forced into the intimacy, not just with spouses, but also with kids or whoever else is in the home," said Karen Bridbord, a psychologist in New York City.
The first step in making this situation work is to talk about it. Talk about any insecurities you may have whether it's participating in a video meeting or being eavesdropped on and what you need in terms of a work environment. Then create a schedule and set boundaries when it comes to separating work life and personal life.
"Have a more general conversation about concerns: what are you worried about vis-à-vis work -- your partner seeing you work being one of those -- and why you worry about them," said Jennifer Petriglieri, author of "Couples That Work: How Dual-Career Couples Can Thrive in Love and Work".
In this way, you're more likely to evoke empathy from the partner which will help negotiate boundaries.
2. Provide an inside look
Sometimes, our partners only hear the bad stuff about work: the micromanaging boss, that loud co-worker and the impossible deadlines.
But being forced to work out of the same office now can help change perceptions and even help partners and kids better understand what we do all day. And that's not a bad thing.
Make your work part of the daily conversation by talking about what you're working on and why it's important to you, suggested Petriglieri.
"When everyone understands the priorities and why they are important, we're more likely to be respectful of boundaries and appreciate each other's work space."
