How Can You Feel Fulfilled Amidst the Pandemic?
The pandemic has taken a toll on a lot of employees mentally and emotionally. Some people are fortunate enough that they are still making a living but with pandemic conditions around, stress and anxiety levels are heightened. While many might think that working from home gives them enough time and flexibility, nowadays, it may not simply work that way.
Are you feeling unhappy with telecommuting? Are you having trouble coping with the current state of things? If so, then here are some habits that you should do for a happier working life.
With all the clutter, both at your workspace and in your head, it can be hard to focus working, often leaving you distractions and that sense of not being able to get anything done. This can leave you feeling unfulfilled and unhappy. Clearing out your desk of clutter and perhaps meditating can help you get that focus back once again.
Getting Enough Sleep
It can’t be emphasized enough that to be more productive, you need to get more sleep. Not getting any sleep at all is tantamount to being intoxicated and your cognitive functions will turn slow. Since you’re most likely working from home, it should be possible for you to get 8 hours of sleep as you don’t have to commute to work.
Making Use of Company Benefits
Is the company giving you paid time outs? Vacation leaves? Why not use them from time to time? You will need some time to unwind and your days off may not be enough for that. Look into company benefits that fit your lifestyle too.
Breaks are absolutely necessary for any worker. It’s hard to spend time working eight hours in front of the computer inputting data or taking calls. Get off your seat, grab a snack, have some coffee, or drink some water. Short respites a day will prevent you from being burnt out.
Even though you’re telecommuting, it’s still possible to get in touch with your friends or even your co-workers through online means. If you’re on break, then you should take time to learn how they are doing. You can tell them about your day as well. Social interaction can be difficult but at the very least, you have online means that help you do so.
Happiness at work amidst the pandemic can be hard to sustain. It may be a struggle, but it’s a struggle that you can overcome, turning into a happier and more productive worker regardless of the circumstances you may find yourself in.
