How Remote Working Is Affecting Human Psychology
COVID-19 has forced many businesses to transform rapidly into remote working environments over the past eighteen months. This seamless transition has been made possible by adopting online platforms including Zoom and Google chat.
It’s enabled companies to save on renting a premises, reduce energy bills, and cut staff expenses. It’s also empowered employees the flexibility to work from anywhere and save time on not having to commute to the office each day.
However, for many individuals, the work-from-home lifestyle is not all that it’s cracked up to be, as less socializing and more screen time have led to increased stress levels. There is also miscommunication among peers, creating further anxiety.
To prevent burnout, we recommend that you address anxieties and worries with your manager and communicate regularly with your co-workers. Also, to support your mental health while protecting your family’s physical fitness during the pandemic, maintain optimum wellbeing by creating a conducive home workspace.
To achieve this, find a comfortable and private place in your home to work from, and if possible incorporate exercise breaks and social interaction into your routine. Finally, simple tweaks like turning off email notifications before and after working hours and keeping a regular sleep schedule will help maintain a feeling of normality.
