Prioritizing Healthy Work Habits During a Pandemic

healthy work habits

There’s no denying that navigating the world is very different now than it was this time last year. Global health crises, raging pandemics and social unrest have changed the way so many of us work and live, including the way we think about our workspaces. A renewed focus on promoting sanitary and safe environments reigns, but less is being said about how to maintain a healthy working environment and habits for those working from home.

Sticking to video conferences might mean you’re less likely to be exposed to the novel coronavirus, but that doesn’t mean working from home doesn’t come with its own health challenges. Find out how you can create a healthier environment and develop healthier work habits through this challenging time.

Embracing the Chaos of the New Normal

There are so many things you can control as social distancing and spotty economic activity wreak havoc on daily life. If you’re working from home, you’re able to exert control over how your workspace functions that make it easier to adapt to a socially distant new normal. Still, it’s important to understand that there will also be many things you likely can’t control, and this is where it can be helpful to embrace the chaos to the best of your ability. 

Learning to roll with the punches is never easy, especially if you’re more accustomed to strict schedules and solid routines. Right now, learning to roll with the punches is a necessary survival skill. When life regains some semblance of normalcy, holding on to your ability to think on your feet and make last-minute adjustments on the fly can be a tremendous boon.

Building Reliable and Effective Professional Support Systems

Making time for exercise, improving your diet and avoiding large gatherings are all essential aspects of promoting healthy habits, but so is safeguarding your emotional health.

Wellness means learning to build the right support systems to ensure you’re not burnt out or stretched thin as lockdowns and case counts dominate the national conversation. If you’re trying to juggle your professional responsibilities while also managing kids’ distance learning, things can be even more challenging.

How many work-related tasks are you responsible for which could easily be handled by someone else? Not everything can be outsourced, but you may be surprised by just how much of your daily work load could be handed off so you have more time and energy to focus on the big things. Virtual assistants and online tools built to streamline tasks can be tremendously helpful in this area. When you’re able to take a step back from draining tasks you can easily delegate to someone else, you’re better positioned to foster healthier habits while increasing productivity, too.
