Working from home has impacted everyone, including those living the largest.

Turns out a big house, even bigger paycheck and hired help does not make a pandemic more bearable. According to Forbes, some of the most powerful and richest people in the world are struggling in lockdown.

The CEO of a luxury treatment center says executives are used to having people they can order around. Now, many are struggling because their egos are not being nurtured enough. Instead of running a boardroom, they are alone in their home office.

Another issue—many executives are used to working long hours or traveling. Suddenly, they are spending more time with a family they might not fit in with. They are being asked to run errands and do chores normally handled by someone else.

Leon Taylor, an executive coach to the wealthy, says his clients wear a stress-level device. Normally, their levels dip when they get home after a long day. Now, they’re experiencing constant stress all day without getting a sense of relief.

Guess that cliché is really true that money can’t buy happiness.
