For many the daily commute offered a precious window of time to prepare for or shake off the working day. For some of us, after months of working from home, new habits have formed. Could a fake commute reinstall that ‘me time’, help you mentally prepare for the day ahead, or offer that vital post-work unwind?
Whether it’s virtual meet-ups, check-ins or after work gatherings, it helps bring routine in to the day and create a sense of community – something that is often missing when remote working becomes the norm. The good news is that there’s lots that can be done to combat feelings of loneliness caused by isolation and sometimes it really is the small things that can make a difference.
