Are you feeling the January blues? It’s bleak outside and maybe you’re lacking the motivation to kickstart your New Year. Perhaps you’re also tired of working from home. After spending the majority of last year glued to the kitchen table, the novelty might have worn off.

Be conscious of your mindset.

Returning to work when you’re working from home requires a bit of extra mental discipline. Be strict with yourself about returning to work. Remind yourself that it’s no longer the holidays.

Do not start the day by checking emails.

Starting your first day back at work by checking you emails will do nothing other than make you frustrated. Yes, there are likely hundreds of unread messages, but none of them so important that they can’t wait a few more hours.

Take time to get things organised.

Take the first hour back at work to get yourself re-situated and organised. Tidy up your space, get your coffee and your water, then log in to Slack or Zoom. Check in with your team or a co-worker. The simple act of communicating with a colleague. It helps to put you back into a working mindset, and two, connection is a mood booster.

Remember, everyone else is probably feeling exactly the way you are, so it’s okay to take a little bit longer to ease back into things again. Follow us on LinkedIn for more content like this! Or browse the other content we have here.
