Have you been grappling with re-entry anxiety, safety concerns, or perhaps a sense of lost purpose? Adjusting to the workplace after a prolonged absence from this pandemic can be challenging, and it can take an unexpected toll on your mental health.
Consider these eye-opening statistics: 1 in 3 people admit that returning to the office has had a negative impact on their mental well-being. So, how can we effectively readjust to the workplace environment?
1. ACKNOWLEDGE AND ACCEPT:
Change is an inevitable part of life, and it’s important to recognize this. Sometimes, we underestimate our own resilience in overcoming negative emotions. Celebrate the small victories along your journey and remember to show yourself kindness and compassion along the way.
2. PROGRESSIVE GOALS ARE STILL GOALS:
Success is often achieved through a series of gradual steps, not giant leaps. Prioritize the small yet significant strides that lead to your ultimate objectives. Don’t forget to give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back!
3. “EVERY CRISIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO RELOOK INTO POSITIVE CHANGES”: Every crisis presents an opportunity for growth and transformation. Reach out to your support system and engage in social interactions. Conversations about your experiences and feelings can help relieve stress. Lean on your friends, family, and colleagues, and remember to be there for them too. Let’s commit to doing our best in this transition. You’re not alone in this journey !
