Why Working from Home Doesn’t Have to Mean Working Alone
As many businesses have now transitioned to remote working due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the vast majority of people and business owners are currently working from home. While some prefer the short commute to their coffee table or home office to start work as oppose to an hour-long commute into the city, working remotely also presents employees with a brand-new set of obstacles that can affect one’s personal and professional growth.
Perhaps the most talked-about hurdle that stems from working from home is the lack of interaction and stimulation that we get from simply being around other people and listening to their ideas and opinions. A great way to combat this is through engaging withing podcasts while you work.
The Benefits of Listen to Podcasts While Working from Home
Listening to podcasts while working remotely provides a wide range of benefits.
- The relaxing nature of podcasts can alleviate stress (40% of workers class their job as extremely stressful).
- Podcasts can help to boost productivity and performance due to their informative, thought-provoking and motivational nature. They can provide you with a snippet of inspiration and motivation when you feel like you’re hitting the wall.
- Podcasts are great for boosting your mood and overall morale. As mentioned earlier, working from home can be difficult for many individuals with almost half (46%) of UK workers experiencing feelings of loneliness while working from home. Although software like Zoom and Microsoft Teams allow us to hold video conference calls with other employees, we are still left working without any interacts throughout most of our day. Listening to these podcasts will enable us to fill in those gaps between meetings with valuable and engaging conversation.
