Returning to work after lockdown: Are you prepared?

June 15, 2020

Monday 15th June marks a day for many of us going back to reality. Shops and establishments will be open to the public after 2 months of lockdown. For many of us, employers are getting prepared with new measures taking place for employees to return to work. The lockdown period has been a reflection period for many of us, particularly when it comes to our employment and place of work. Lockdown has helped us evaluate our mental health whilst working as well as alternatives to working at the office. Earlier the month we spoke about how to be social again, the QCS team thought it would be useful to provide some tips on ensuring you ease your way back into work with zero issues.

Take regular breaks whilst working

For many of us, working from home or being furloughed has taught us that we normally don’t take enough breaks whilst working. Especially those who are seated for most of their shifts. Please make sure you are getting breaks away from your desk, even for 5 minutes of fresh air or just a brisk walk around the building will help keep you alert and maintain concentration skills.

Try and eat homemade food

Although people are returning to their daily routine, many of us are still susceptible to catching coronavirus. Despite food outlets being open, please try to bring homemade food for your lunch breaks. As tempting as shop bought food can be, right now it is better to avoid risks and products potentially contaminated. Eating foods with less preservatives is better for your mental health and can help suppress hunger so that you feel fuller and less likely to splurge on fatty or sugary snacks.

Take care of your mental health at work

Since lockdown, many employers have incorporated new measures to help employers feel better at work. Some employers have encouraged employees to continue staying at home whilst working and others have implemented team sessions which help with relaxation. If working at home is preferable for you, speak to your employer to see if this is an option to balance out your work schedule. If for any reason, you cannot complete specific tasks or are having issues please speak to your employer. If anything, lockdown has taught us it is to take care of our mental wellbeing, please don’t carry the weight on your shoulders alone as help will always be available.

Adhere to social distancing

As mentioned before, we are still in a pandemic. Therefore, social distancing rules still apply in the public realm. Please try to maintain a distance with colleagues at work and members of the public in retail outlets. In the amidst of returning to your daily routine, please take care of your health and hygiene. Wash your hands regularly and please wear protective masks and gloves. We are aware that with work, social gatherings will soon be taking place. Again, please adhere to the measures as they are there to keep you safe.

The first few weeks returning to work may be a little weird to get used to due to the new measures and restrictions in place, we hope you can take on board this advice to ensure you have a safe, productive and stress-free outlook at work!
