Kami Lentz here, Agency Lead with Centro! I’m here to share some tips I’ve learned in my time working remotely. Wellbeing is a big topic at Centro, as well as an area that I am personally very passionate about.
Here are my top tips for taking care of your mental health while working from home:
“Get outside for Vitamin D!” –Alana Putterman
“I like to listen to Spotify Calming or Classical music channels in the mornings to get me in a zen/strong mindset for the day.” –Alyssa Brown
“I take at least 10 minutes per day to meditate. It's also okay to take 5- to 10-minute breaks throughout the day to clear your head.” –Amanda Wallman
“Keep your routine the same so that working from home doesn't disrupt your sleep cycle. Use Headspace. Use aromatherapy. Make someone else laugh with a meme. During the process you will likely laugh too.” –David Lempp
“Acknowledge when you need a break. You can still get burned out and tired while working at home. Listen to your body. You don't have to work 24/7 just because you're at home. You can still be "off" work, just as you normally would be.” –Laurie Jones
“If I start to feel detached or out of sorts, I will reach out and talk or chat with someone on my team. Proximity doesn't have to dictate whether or not you feel like part of a team.” –Matt Baine
“Be mindful if you are not feeling productive, as a little break will help you re-collect your thoughts. You may even need a little snack! This ties into my physical well-being too.” –Michael Lagioia
