How To Adjust To Working Back In The Office
Working from home or remotely has become normalised and even encouraged over the past few years. Whether you’re returning to the workplace from holiday break, having time off or working from home. We’ve rounded up some tips on adjusting to working back in the office…
Be kind to yourself: Especially if you’re coming from a pandemic WFH situation, it was a big adjustment with a lot of global uncertainty. A lot of things may have changed and being kind and giving yourself some time & compassion as you adjust your life yet again should be at the forefront of your mind as you adjust to working back in the office.
Routine: Create a routine that works for your new schedule, being prepped and organised as to how your week will now run will relieve a large part of the overwhelm of going back into the office. Remembering that this routine doesn’t need to look the same as it did the last time you were consistently working from the office.
Systems & Processes: Like your routine, re-familarise yourself with the systems & processes of your work (either those you personally create to stay organised & productive or the ones required by your workplace). Do these still allow you to work at your best or is there a better way you could be doing things? It’s a great tool to reflect on each year and review how best to use your time.
Be intentional with your time: Set realistic expectations and goals for yourself along with boundaries. As always what you need to get done and what you want to get done are two separate things, utilise your time to be your most productive and get through your M.I.Ts while managing your work/life balance.
Keep up your wellbeing practices: Mismanaged stress, anxiety and even time & energy can have such a big impact on your day to day life. Make sure to continue to prioritise any wellbeing practices you have despite the change in your routine and structure.
