Coping With The Transition From Work From Home To Work From Office

Coping With The Transition From Work From Home To Work From Office

Coping With The Transition From Work From Home To Work From Office

By: - July 16, 2020

The outbreak of COVID-19 forced us to rethink the way we work. Work from home had brought many changes in our lives: change in the environment, daily routines, deadlines, stress levels, and all this boils down to our overall change in lifestyle. Initially, people were a little hesitant about the move, but with time they became very comfortable with it. Infact, working from home helped people in a lot of ways.

Focus on good health

Due to the lockdown and their strict norms, people were bound to stay indoors. Therefore, they started utilizing their free time by practicing yoga and meditation, eating healthy food, playing with their children, reading books, cooking new dishes, and many other activities. All this helped them to stay healthy and fit. They were able to give time to their growth and fitness and focus on wholesome wellness.

Spend time with families

People who used to stay alone in other cities or countries got the opportunity to come back home.  It also opened doors for people who went through depression and hard times in their work and personal lives. They were happy to be back since they could spend some quality time with their loved ones. Uniting again with family and other significant people that matter in our lives makes people feel happy. We could openly share and discuss all our problems, emotions, difficulties with them, and become stress-free.

Try home remedies

Coronavirus made us realize what it means to have a strong immune system. The fear of getting infected with the virus forced us to try and consume home remedies that strengthen our immunity. People started gargling with saline water, drinking kaadha, consuming food rich in Vitamin C, following sattvik diet to stay healthy and protected.

Now that we are back to our offices for work, we should not forget the good habits inherited during the lockdown. The virus has not yet disappeared entirely, but it is all the more increasing day by day. It will be beneficial if we continue taking daily precautions to ensure wholesome wellness, like doing regular yoga and meditation, consuming healthy food, trying home remedies, and improving our mental health.

We need to realize the seriousness of this pandemic and prepare ourselves to fight against it. For that, accepting the new normal along with taking utmost care of ourselves whenever we step outside our homes is now going to be the way of living. The new transition journey has taught us the importance of self-care, physically as well as mentally. We are now aware of specific physical health tips, but an ideal solution for improving mental health is through visiting a Naturopathy and wellness resort.

Nimba Nature Cure is a Naturopathy and wellness resort which is considered to be one of the best meditation retreats we have in India. It is situated in Gujarat. The place offers a unique opportunity for people to ensure wholesome wellness and improve mental health.
