If you’ve been working from home since last year, the thought of returning to the office may be an overwhelming near-future certainty for you. We’ve got some easily implementable tips to help you face the workplace head on.
1. Stay fuelled
It’s easy to skip meals when you’re busy at work, but the long-term effects are not worth the impact on your life. Be sure to make time for breakfast and lunch, and keep some nutritious snacks in your drawer. Seaweed crisps are a source of iodine which helps contribute to normal cognitive function. Plus they’re delicious and different, so if you have new colleagues you would like to bonding with, this is your in.
2. Keep your workspace clean
It may seem like an unnecessary or ‘extra’ thing to do, but taking a few minutes at the end of the day to re-arrange and clean your desk can create a nice environment and give you good mood. Seeing your desk free of clutter and your paperwork neatly stacked in the morning will set you up for a good start of the day.
3. Make plans to chill after work
Make specific plans to relax after work, even write it down on your to do list, will give you something to look forward to. Be it meeting up with friends for drinks, or spending alone time with yoga or meditation, it ensures that you take the time for yourself to recharge.
4. Manage your time wisely
People often underestimate the time it takes to complete a task. When you plan your day for the things you want to get done, make sure to leave a buffer in advance. It's a great idea to get your most important tasks out of the way first thing in the morning when your focus and energy are both high.
5. Think positive
Even if you are feeling the Sunday blues before returning to the office, just know that once you get into the swing of things, it will feel completely normal again. A positive attitude is contagious and will also help your colleagues settle back in quickly, making the return to the office a joyful time.
