Going back to the “old normal” after months of working from home can be a challenge. That’s why today we bring you four tips to make it easier for you to return to the office after the pandemic.
Prepare Your Wardrobe
Chances are good that it’s been a while since you touched your “office” clothes. A good first step in your return to the office plan is to prepare your wardrobe. This is an easy and pleasant task that will give you a sense of control and will help you get in the right mindset to return to the office. Preparing your wardrobe can really help you get into the swing of things, and before you know it you will be doing other things that will be useful to the transition, like checking your daily planner or looking up recipes for lunch.
Adjust Your Sleep Schedule
The months you stayed at home probably messed up with your sleep schedule. Prepare to go back to the office by paying more attention to your sleep. If possible, start going to bed at the same hour you’ll have to do it when you return to the office. This will help you ease into the transition with less stress.
Focus on the Positive
Stress is a natural part of any transition, and returning to the office is no exception. If you are feeling stressed about transitioning to office work, try this simple trick. Psychologists believe that focusing on the positive helps relieve anxiety. Think, for example, of the coworkers you look forward to seeing again, or the nice restaurant around the corner you will be able to visit again.
