If you worked in an office before the pandemic, chances are you walked out one day in March hoping to return in a couple of weeks or, at the very worst, a couple of months. But now, almost two years later, working remotely which seemed destined to last is coming to an end.
Although going back to a professional space and communicating with peers seems like an exciting pursuit, transitioning from our largely comfort-focused homework spaces to a professional setup does have its gloomy challenges.
So we give you a list of essentials that are bound to retain a little comfort in your workspace from your WFH days –
1. An Eclectic Sipper
Don’t forget to carry your all-time saviour, a sipper especially when shared resources are not advisable to use. Safeguard yourself from any virus or infections in this new normal while carrying a piece of home. Add some excitement to your work life by flaunting these in flamboyant colours on your workstation. This also can motivate you to hydrate regularly, which is always essential.
2. Noise Cancelling Headphones
Quiet and stillness have been a major part of our work from home routine, however returning to the cacophony and laughter of a working space may be disturbing for some. Pick yourself some good quality noise-cancelling pods which allow you to focus and streamline work while the noises get too much. Ear pods if you want to do this discreetly.
3. Moisturising Sanitizer
Sanitize. A word we have heard multiple times in the past year. One cannot deny the fear that still grips us when we think of the pandemic. Returning to work that fear lingers, and the only practical solution seems to be a good moisturising sanitiser that takes care of any germs that may linger as well as ensure your hands are well taken care of. With innovations taking place every alternate day and skincare considered as a recurring battle, choose an affordable and practically crafted sanitiser like the Savlon moisturising sanitiser. It not only protects from germs but also makes your hands feel soft, enabling the users to sanitise as many times as necessary to feel protected.
4. Mindfulness Journals
While we swiftly make a shift between professional tasks and personal life commitments, it becomes imminent to take out time for self-care. Mindfulness journals are one such necessity that allows us to get a grip on our thoughts and concerns and leave us feeling lighter during a coffee break. Indulge yourself by picking up journals that appeal to your senses and add a bit of glitter and colour for the much-needed pick-me-up!
5. Aromatic Tea
There’s no denying that aromatic teas have a charm of their own. These loose-leaf teas hold the potential to make you feel alive on the dullest of days. They can bring warmth during cool winter evenings and make for a cooling beverage during hot summer days. An aromatic tea brew is truly happiness in a cup and is the perfect recuperation remedy you need when things are too hectic at work.
