The Effect of Post-Pandemic Crisis Culture at Work

How to work -smarter from home.

Working from home has blurred the lines between where work ends and you begin. It’s harder to close your laptop. Those alerts on your phone are like wack-a-moles. Your home-office is now taking up your entire house (including your bedroom).

These habits also make you over-work and burn-out, while also making it harder to realistically assess your competence and skills. In other words: You constantly think you are falling short or on the brink of failure, when you actually are excelling.

Positive Psychology is the science of being your best and feeling your best. The field is founded upon belief in human goodness, and human desire to improve ourselves and enjoy our lives. The goal of positive psychology is to increase human flourishing. I define human flourishing as: becoming the most successful and satisfied version of ourselves.
