In these challenging times, it is important to stay grounded and assured. Many of you are being asked to adapt to a new way of working from home. You may be experiencing changes in your social life, home routine, or your work schedule. But, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming! With a few simple shifts, working from home can be part of a new, holistic rhythm that feels just as productive and healthy as being in the office.
As Sprinklr’s in-house wellbeing coach, my job is to help employees easily incorporate healthy habits and wellness into their daily workday. I’ve recently been offering Mindful Moment sessions three times a day virtually to employees worldwide. These sessions are 15 minutes long and include stretching, breath work, a guided mediation and a moment of gratitude.
In addition to adding mindfulness into your daily schedule, here are a few other strategies you can use to jumpstart your journey towards a healthy working from home mindset and environment:
In order to feel centered throughout these uncertain times, it’s important to create new structures and routines. Consistency, predictability, and follow through will help shape your day and give you a sense of normalcy. A few ways to create a routine:
Including daily health rituals helps you create needed structure. Daily wellness rituals help to mark the beginning and end of the day to ensure a separation of work and home, and they allow planned breaks to keep you relaxed and positive. For these reasons, incorporating physical, mental, and environmental rituals into your daily routine is highly worthwhile.
Hiccups and disruptions while trying to get work tasks done from home are completely normal. There will inevitably be emotional highs and lows, and it’s possible that extra effort will be required to produce the same work. For employers, it may take more work to enable the same level of engagement. But that’s ok! It’s just part of the package. Adapting work expectations and keeping goals manageable will prevent frustration, and empower your employees and colleagues to handle hardships readily. Some tips for setting healthy expectations:
Above all, during these trying times, give yourself grace. Allow yourself to make mistakes and learn from them. Whether you’re making decisions for your whole organization, or for your personal day to day work life, we’re all in this together. Trying to reconcile ourselves to a new lifestyle is tough and will take time. I hope that implementing some of these suggestions will help you stay healthy and happy as we all move forward together.
