When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit, many consumers welcomed the challenge of working remotely, but with no end in sight and the added pressures of daily life, working from home can pose similar issues of burnout as working in an office. As part of its 'The Way We Work' series, Morra Aarons-Mele shares honest and practical advice on how one can thrive in the rapidly changing work landscape.
The first piece of advice the speaker gives is to "protect you energy." This can be done through a series of ways, the first being to create a ritual. The speaker explains that even something as simple as a commute creates a ritual for us, effectively separating work from home. Without it, the lines are blurred and it can be harder to produce good wok, and to focus. The speaker then goes on to explain that as we work from home, we should create rituals that separate work, from life.
