It’s official, remote work is no longer a trend, but a new way of working that we all must adapt to. While plenty of people will still go to the office, many companies have recognized the benefits of work from home (WFH) and will continue it.
Twitter recently announced that its 3900+ employees can now work from home permanently, and many more companies are following their lead according to a new Gartner survey finding that 74% of CFOs would like to incorporate remote work into their long-term strategy.
Remote work is here to stay but are your employees ready for it? Common challenges like isolation, burnout, and low morale are always lurking around the corner. To ensure people are thriving at home, it’s essential to develop healthy routines that balance work, social interactions, and personal well-being.
We’ve created this Remote Work Idea Series to share new ways people can improve their routines to stay mentally and physically fit as they work from home. Here’s our first instalment!

The sudden change from everyday office life to isolation should not be taken for granted. With that in mind, we’ve compiled 10 ideas you can add to your routine to help alleviate some of these mental health challenges.
