Whether you are back to the office, working remotely or hybrid, routines and habits create an opportunity for flow and ease.
More and more attention has been placed on the notion of habits and routines. Some of my favorite books on these topics include
The Power of Habit – Charles Duhigg
Tiny Habits – BJ Fogg
Atomic Habits – James Clear
The workspace today can be demanding, which often requires we become more intentional with what we want to create. Boundary issues, (or lack thereof) has led to overwork, burnout, and even compassion fatigue. What boundaries are important to create around your work and life this fall?
In order to create the automaticity of flow, it can be valuable to start establishing routines at a key point. Whether you choose the day after Labor Day (or some other), it can serve as a reset.
Consider these reset opportunities to working differently:
Getting into, and out of the office, at an established time of day. Boundaries in work times can provide an opportunity for more focus.
Getting more exercise --- with fall comes new work locations and new activities. What would you like to establish as a workout routine. Is it getting to the gym at lunch, or before work? Is it dusting off the treadmill or running shoes you have and getting out?
Intentionally building in time to re-establish relationships – Many professional associations are back to regular in-person programming this fall. What time have you earmarked to meet, and reconnect, with others inside and outside of your organization?
Time with family or the people that matter most – It is easy to have work take center stage. What are you doing to build in time to connect with family and/or those that matter most? As the old age says, “What doesn’t get scheduled, doesn’t get done”. Who is important to spend time with this fall? What time won’t you get back?
What else is important to consider as you think about your back to fall routines?
