Importance of change in work routines in post pandemic
Posted: Nov 01, 2020
Impacts of COVID-19 has been very compelling, professionals to work remotely, many experts think that it will become more common for people to split their time between working from home and going to the office. The remote workforce is indeed likely to grow in the coming years, but many will still want a place to connect with others in person. Mental health has taken taken toll and in twitter insider survey it was found that between 2016 and 2020, conversations revolving around "well being", "mental health" and self care" grew over 225%. Mental health has become increasing concern and over 54% agreed "my mental health" is the most spoken word in the current times. It Our work routines have stretched more than stipulated time, people are sitting on for long hours at one position, we have got more distractions than before in digital era, our habits have been off track due to work routine, working from home may create loneliness to work on lack of motivation without the right colleagues along. We can solve them together we the right intent: 1. Create a routine and stick to it, as it may cause you to have a less of distraction and more of focus. Be it getting up early, having food on right time and family time. All the more creates a order in your mind, and helps you work peacefully. 2. Sitting for long hours in one position will cause you bad pain on your muscles. And gyms are closed too! Taking a short little breaks and stretching your muscles will help your body to relax. Staying hydrated with water will also help in long term. 3. Our work routines sometime extend beyond the normal expected time and it keeps on that way for long. Work is done alone from their respective homes, so there might be a drop in motivation levels. So tying up with right coworking spaces which can promote to have easy video conferences than the just messaging platform can help you boost productivity levels. 4. Getting more family time during pandemic has helped to build better relationships and also it causes distractions during the work times. You can better divide it as per your own comfortability and find the best way to hold on to your source of interest and motivation. 5. Last but not least, if you find that you have more time than you can spare, finding things that you love to do, can take lot of stress away. Be it art, workout or watch for any movie.
Pandemic has indeed created a choice and to check in on our choices. Normal before was just getting doing what all thought important and work routines which changed during pandemic and now we are coming back to new normal, created a wide difference in our life choices.
In the midst of all this problems, I have seen people over come their current work routines and living a better balance life between work life balance. Find the best which can help you too. Working spaces with good conference rooms and shared office spaces, can help you relax and get to work with ease.
Offices historically were used as an area for people to get their work done, however since that isn't needed any longer, what main purposes do they serve?
