Making a Back-to-Work Plan During the COVID-19 Pandemic


Now that some stay at home restrictions are coming to an end and businesses are reopening, Americans are heading back to their offices. We must continue to practice the safety measures professionals have recommended like social distancing, wearing masks in public, and proper hygiene. While Americans begin heading back to work and getting to our “new normal”, we can be more prepared than just a mask and hand sanitizer. To help you prepare, and to live a well lifestyle at work, try some of the following.


Sleep

Try getting back on a regular workday sleep schedule. Returning to your usual sleep routine will prevent burnout and fatigue during your workday. Also, make sure you are getting adequate sleep in the weeks leading up to your return. This could improve your mood and help to reduce some of the anxiety you may be feeling about the change. Wellness goes beyond what you eat!


Clothes

Not excited about trading in your yoga pants for trousers? Treat yourself to an awesome new work-appropriate outfit. Maybe some new slacks and a blouse? Don’t forget the shoes! Sort of like a first day of school outfit, a kick-ass back to work outfit can really set the tone for the coming months.
