Heading back to office? Beat the anxiety, and ease into the routine with these tips

Failure to wake up on time is one of the main reasons why people struggle to get to work on time and eat a proper meal. Experts recommend attempting to sleep on time, limiting screen time during sleep hours, and limiting alcohol and caffeine consumption to help adjust the circadian rhythm.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS :

Offices are opening up, and working professionals will soon return to their workplace to resume the old routine — waking up in a rush, grabbing a quick bite for breakfast, and then rushing to modes of public transportation to get to work on time. This is followed by a mountain of work, gallons of stress, and sometimes no time to eat a proper lunch peacefully — while it is not without challenges, many people will experience back-to-work anxiety.

After all, leaving the comforts of home can be difficult for many people. Don’t worry, there are some simple tips to beat the stress of returning to work by making some simple lifestyle changes.

Meditation or mindfulness practise is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress. One of the most effective ways to combat anxiety is to sit quietly in a quiet room and practise breathing exercises. Try taking some time out every day before going to work to meditate — not to mention the benefits of breathing exercises for respiratory health.

One of the main reasons why people struggle to get to work on time and eat a proper meal is a failure to wake up on time. Experts recommend attempting to sleep on time, limiting screen time during sleep hours, and limiting alcohol and caffeine consumption to help adjust the circadian rhythm. Sleeping on time, eating a light dinner, and waking up early can give you enough time in the morning to grab a coffee, prepare a balanced breakfast, and enjoy it peacefully without having to rush to work on an empty stomach.

While alcohol may provide temporary relief from stress, it may also be one of the reasons you are unable to get adequate sleep. An alcohol binge can cause dehydration, disrupt sleep patterns, and even cause a hangover the next day.

Working from home introduced many people to an era of working incessantly — waking up on the work desk and falling asleep in the same spot. People were introduced to a sedentary lifestyle with limited movement and even weight gain as a result of this. Returning to work, on the other hand, will increase body movement, the number of steps you take each day, and may even make it easier for you to strike a work-life balance. Begin by leaving work on time, going for a walk, meeting friends, grabbing a coffee, working out, and cooking healthy meals at home.

• S itting peacefully in a quiet room to practise breathing exercises is one of the best ways to keep anxiety at bay.

• Alcohol might offer temporary relief from stress, however, it could be one of the reasons you are not able to get proper sleep.

• Work from home introduced many people to a new era of working incessantly — waking up on the job desk and falling asleep in the same spot .
