3 WAYS TO OVERCOME LONELINESS WHEN WORKING FROM HOME ☀️



A whopping 65% of the workforce enjoys the flexibility of remote work. However, a variety of studies are beginning to show an increase in loneliness with those who work from home.


It’s becoming a very serious problem and is starting to rank up there with heart disease and stroke!


If you’re feeling somewhat isolated, below are 3 ideas to help you feel more productive and connected to others. 💡


1.       Give your day a cadence by creating a consistent schedule that includes a few breaks throughout the day.


2.       Sitting in the same room all day long can be unproductive. Get up and go outside for 5 – 10 minutes - take the opportunity to wave to your neighbor 👋


3.       Talk with people. Instead of sending email after email, take the initiative to schedule a Zoom/Teams or pick up the phone and make a call.


Working from home requires discipline, since you don’t want to be distracted by your personal chores and responsibilities. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take a break and reach out to others.


In fact, it’s a very heathy thing to do. 💪
