After months away from your workplace, the prospect of returning may feel daunting. These simple tips will help you alleviate that anxiety and instill a positive mindset.

1. GET BACK INTO A ROUTINE

Lockdown may have caused you to slip out of your normal work schedule and sleep pattern, but getting back into a routine can help reduce feelings of anxiety. Prioritise your sleep by going to bed and getting up at a similar time as a typical work day.

2. TALK TO YOUR MANAGER

If you're worried about returning to your workplace, a back-to-work conversation with your manager will allow you to raise concerns and find out your options. For example, if you're uneasy about your commute, you could ask to work flexibly, while a phased return might help you acclimatise.

3. PLAN AND PREPARE

Alongside organising your work bag and planning what to wear, think about the practicalities of travelling back to the office. Do you have a face mask and hand sanitiser for your commute? Making a realistic to-do list of your work priorities will also help you structure your day without feeling overwhelmed.
