How have you been keeping up with your mental health while WFH?

I am personally missing the feeling and the sound of the bell ring when a deal is closed or just the energy from the sales floor.

Schedule 5 min breaks on your calendar throughout the day. This makes me get up, stretch, walk, and gets me away from the screen for a few. The reset works.Β

I love this. I could use these 5 minute breaks as gaps in-between back to back meetings.

I definitely miss the energy but I do a couple daily walks to clear my mind and get away from the screensΒ

Daily walks are definitely something I need to start incorporating. During the winter months, this was harder and I definitely felt the toll of WFH more often.

Great point - honestly, I've found hiking to be my respite. Was finding myself at the bottom of a wine glass / Pax a bit too often (like...every night...) and with the gym closed, it wasn't trending well.Β 

But hiking gets my mind clear, heart racing, and refocused.Β

I wish I had some more hiking trails near me but biking has been my solace lately.

Slack calls help make you feel like you’re in the office and β€œwalking over to someone’s desk real fast”

I find that this still doesn't help me much because of zoom/slack/teams fatigue of being on video all day.

I used to work from home full time for about 10 years, and I got into the habit of "commuting" to and from my home office.Β  My "commute" was 20 minutes of uninterrupted "mental time" whether it be on a walk, or just listening to sports radio, I found I needed to separate the spaces a bit, and decompress when shifting from work to home (and vice versa)Β

I really like this point about a habit of "commuting". Taking those breaks of uninterrupted mental time.

I also got in the habit of β€œgoing out” to lunch, which usually meant not sitting at my desk to eatΒ

I definitely miss the hallway chats/coffee breaks. I need to take more breaks and take weekends off.

I find that I am staying on later than I would have if we were still in office. I also need to take more breaks and weekends off for sure. Self care is important.

At first I wasn't doing anything. Ultimately decided to place a greater emphasis on my mental well being.

Things like creating a routine to get active, outside, meditate, listen to podcasts, to disconnect from work.Β 

Our sales team actually does weekly stuff like a F45 class on Zoom together to help us maintain mental wellness.Β

That is awesome that your team does weekly F45 classes. I would love that.

Taking walks, zooming with colleagues, and taking breaks as needed to clear my head and reset.Β
