Eliminate Your Bad Quarantine Habits Before Returning to the Office

by James P. Outreach & PR Executive

Countless months of lonesome coffees and daily commutes which require rolling out of bed, slipping into our comfiest attire, and opening our laptop lid. Lockdown has forced us to become accustomed to a new way of life recently. Some of us adapted quickly, whereas others found it more of a struggle. 

 

Although we hoped 2021 would be different, so far, the UK has once again been plunged into another month of lockdown restrictions. However, at some point, we’re going to have to readapt and evolve back to what we were used to: alarms set a few hours earlier, a stressful morning commute through rush hour, and face-to-face socialisation. 

 

There are two ways you can do this. The first option is to slip into a not-so-subtle snooze by 10:30 and somehow make your way through the workday delirious and exhausted. The second is to make it through the day fully conscious and determined. 

 

Here, we’ll explore how you can succeed when we finally make it back into the office in 2021. 

 

Regular exercise 

Gyms are once again closed and although there was major investment in home workout equipment when lockdown first began, many of us turned to takeaways and copious glasses of malbec as the winter months closed in on us.  

 

Although we’ve passed 21st December  the shortest and darkest day of the year  once we returned to the office, the hours in the day will seem even more limited. Commuting will make it even harder to find the time to exercise regularlySet aside an hour each day to meditate, run, or lift weightsIf you start now, it’ll be much easier to last a full day when you’re back at work.  

 

Ditch your sweats 

When we were put into lockdown, we all likely hoped to change our lives as little as possible, clothing being one important factor. 

 

You’ll likely be aware of people who get dressed properly every day to keep in the right frame of mind for work. We probably all got dressed for the first month or so of lockdown, but after month give, we’d given up. Sadly, so many of us have gotten lazy in terms of what we wear to work from home, and it can affect how we feel. Hoodies and sweatpants are undeniably comfortable, but it isn’t going to cut it when we’re back in the lion’s denSo, you need to cut it out now so normal clothes are less of a shock to the system. 

 

While you might be tempted to throw yourself into formal clothing and sit at your kitchen table in three-piece suits for men and evening dresses for women, you should be getting back into the swing of smart casual a few weeks before you return to the officeWork your way up so you’re not in major discomfort.
