Work-at-home burnout is a reality. Whether you are working from home full-time or on a hybrid model, now is the time to review your habits and see what you can change. Preventing burnout can make a big difference in your life but also help make life easier for your teammates. Can you make some of these changes?
- Define your workday. We are all working long hours but make sure you have a time you start, a time for lunch and an ending for your day. While this may not be possible every day, set a time that you turn the computer off and relax.
- Use your break. Stopping work and taking a lunch break is important even if it’s short. But, if you can take a longer break, leave your desk and take a walk, run or just get away.
- Look at your workspace. What can you change to be more relaxed? You may be working in a tiny space but can you change the lighting, colors, or add a plant. Do something so that when you look at it, you can take a deep breath and destress for a minute.
- Take time off. Schedule your vacation or spa day or just stay home and enjoy!
