Wellness, Remote Work, & Burnout
For many people, being able to work from home was one of the few silver linings of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are obvious benefits of working remotely, but it has also been linked to increasing rates of employee burnout. Using the same spaces for working and relaxing often makes it difficult for people to mentally clock out when the workday ends. In fact, studies have shown that nearly 82% of remote workers feel additional pressure to put in extra hours. Staying home all day can also increase feelings of isolation from coworkers and society in general. Along with being unable to socialize, many people couldn’t go to the gym or take advantage of their office’s wellness programs during the shutdown. These factors, and others, have led to increased rates of burnout among remote workers. People who work from home should try these suggestions to help de-stress and separate their work life from their home life.
