Now that some public establishments are starting to re-open, more people are slowly returning back to their offices.
If you’ve been working from home these past several months, chances are by now you’ve established a pretty solid routine.
Even if you’re excited to go back to work, everything from the commute to waking up early likely will take some time to get used to.
Here are 3 tips that can help you adjust!
Connect With Your Team:
No matter what industry you’re in, connecting with your team is so important.
Establishing relationships with coworkers both face to face and virtually can help provide you with a sense of belonging and community. It can also make it easier to work together towards common goals.
Plan Your Days In Advance:
Setting aside just ten minutes every evening to plan the following day can work wonders on your overall performance.
We all have our own focus style. Some of us get our best work done first thing in the morning, while others thrive in the evening.
Independent high-value tasks that require intense concentration should be done during your peak times.
On another note, high-value tasks that require collaboration will require some flexibility and compromise.
Be sure to ask your teammates what their peak hours are. If you have the same schedule, that’s great! If not, you’ll have to land on a happy medium.
Take Some Time To Relax:
It’s no secret that commuting can be exhausting at times. When you get home from work, it’s not uncommon to dive into housework or prepare dinner.
However, doing so can be very overwhelming and draining.
Instead, give yourself some time to relax and get out of work mode. Proper and consistent relaxation helps us stay productive, energized and motivated! Exactly what we all need after a long day at the office. Learn More
