Remote working has resulted in longer workdays for many professionals. This can lead to burnout and fatigue if there’s no room for some me-time, especially as we stay home bound. Here are some ways to address this:
Define your work-free time. It could be setting aside a couple of hours every evening for dinner and workout, or even not checking your phone until 8 am every day. This will help you get over the feeling that you are “always on”.
Focus on your health. Try getting seven hours of sleep a night or taking short breaks during work hours to walk around or stretch. When you are physically fit, you will be more productive.
Make time for activities that make you happy, like going out for a run, connecting with friends or cooking. These need not take up long stretches of time. But they will give you back the energy and enthusiasm for work.
