Work-home balance is here to stay and we have the products to make it easier.
In a post-pandemic world, commuting to work may become a thing of the past, with a new survey conducted by Angus Reid for the flexible workspace provider International Workplace Group finding that nearly one third of Canadians want their daily work commute to be less than 15 minutes. Further, 66% of those surveyed want to work using a hybrid model of working from home and physically going into the workplace, leading to many perks including: more time to prepare healthy meals, more time to exercise and less money spent on clothing. Looks like the work-home balance is here to stay.
Hybrid work models means more time at home. Ergo more mess around the house including more dishes piling up. Don’t think of washing up as a chore but as a mindful exercise to stay present, and to get away from extra screen time. While you’re at it, practice self-care by ensuring you take care of your pearly whites too. Happy home, happy you, happy life.
