5 tips from Renee Senander to enhance your well-being while telecommuting:

  1. Set aside a designated work area - Create and keep a dedicated workspace. Try to make it a place you enjoy going to each day by surrounding yourself with things that inspire you.

  2. Schedule walking meetings - This works well if both participants are working remotely and commit to the walk.
  3. Virtual coffee breaks - Check in with your colleagues, grab a beverage and have a chat for 15 minutes.
  4. Open virtual meetings with an icebreaker - Help build comradery by starting team meetings with an icebreaker.
  5. Take regular breaks -Taking short five-minute active breaks at the top of each hour can reduce overworking (which might lead to an injury!) and increase creativity
