1st of August 2020
The future is flexible, and we are finding new ways of working.
As the times are constantly changing, so does our work environment. Today, the future of work is a lifestyle of personal preferences and for some, personal choices.
The normal working environment sees the lines between home and office life blurring.
Now people are seeking more comfort and flexibility where they possibly can, whether that be in laid back co-working spaces that offer respite in cosy break out spaces, or setting up a desk in your spare room and making the rules as you go. Whatever your work situation may be, it’s becoming known that businesses are slowly learning how to adapt to the flexibility of the modern-day worker.
The scale of this new shift is unprecedented, but what we do know is the world of marketing is changing, and we are learning to make better use of what we have in order to achieve the same results. We are learning to disperse our workload efficiently across team members with less communication and using this time as an opportunity for growth and new ideas.
When life and work start to go back to (the new) normal, it’s important that agencies work towards an office culture that works best for everyone. Whether you’re back in the office or still WFH. We’ve compiled a few tips for easing into routines and reimagining boundaries.
1. Accept that boundaries might blur
Prioritising a few tasks that you are set to complete each day can relieve pressure and help you create momentum for the next day.
2. Take care of yourself outside of work hours
Make sure you’re practicing self-care routines and making time to speak with friends and family.
Spend some time off social media or devoting some time during the day to do something unrelated to work.
4. Lighten your workload
In order to have clarity of thought and a calm mind. Don't try and do everything at once.
As Coronavirus has forced us to rethink the way we work, the remainder of 2020 can be used as a chance to set new, positive boundaries for yourself and your work life. It might be helpful to focus on the small changes we can make to our day that will have a healthy impact on our long-term mental health. The best thing we can do to move forward is to get comfortable with the present moment.
