After 5 years working from home, I thought I knew how to handle going to the bathroom in the middle of an important 2hr meeting. I did not. I had to bring my phone into the bathroom, no video and on mute mind you, while I did my business.

    You should advocate that any meeting that is that long has a 5 min break in the middle of it! We do that for any meeting longer than 1.5 hours. We also start meetings 5 mins after the hour or end 5 mins before the hour to give everyone sometime. It takes discipline but at this point we've gotten pretty good at actually ending at that time instead filling up the entire hour
