As more people are working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important for employees to maintain a healthy lifestyle and improve their mental well-being. People should create strict boundaries while working from home to prevent burnout, as well as sticking to a loose daily routine. They shouldn’t take themselves too seriously either to avoid stressful situations. Workers with children should also take some time off for themselves, and engage in self-care activities to create a less worrisome environment.
- Setting boundaries is important; once the workday is over leave work and tasks behind.
- Stick to a solid routine but don’t be too repetitive in what you do every day.
- Show compassion to yourself and take time off when you need to.
“We have made some adjustments to this new normal, but uncertainty and stress remain for when a true return to normal is possible.”
