Be kind to yourself and recognise the graft. Take the day in bite-sized chunks. Write your to-do list but don’t forget to add tasks to the bottom that you have completed but were not on the original list. This way you see exactly what you have achieved in the day.

Flexible working is vital to our team’s wellbeing in the workplace. By not having strict start and finish times staff feel empowered to work during times when they are most productive rather than forcing a night owl to be in for a 9am start. This also means that our team can schedule appointments and other activities during traditional office hours, allowing them to have a work-life balance that works in everyone’s favour.

Culture and vibe is a crucial factor when it comes to wellbeing in the workplace. It is safe to say that not every day can be upbeat, but as long as those quieter days are because of productivity and not because of awkward silence it can still have a positive effect on your personal mood.
