10 effective tips for a successful return to the office

The return to the office is on the horizon for many, and it’s important to approach this transition with a positive mindset and effective strategies. In this article, we present ten key tips to make your return to the office a smooth and balanced one.

1. Establish an early routine:

One of the biggest challenges when returning to the office is adjusting back to a set schedule. Start by setting your alarm clock gradually a few days before your return to avoid the shock of having to get up too early all at once. Establishing a morning routine will help you start the day with energy and give you time to mentally prepare. If you’ve been caught off guard, we recommend getting up with a few minutes to spare so you can go through your morning routines slowly and without the stress of rushing out the door.

2. Enjoy moments of relax:

Take advantage of a few moments throughout the day to relax, give yourself a break and disconnect. If your office allows it, you can hold meetings outdoors or simply take a walk during your lunch break. Being surrounded by greenery and fresh air can revitalize you and improve your back-to-school focus and creativity.

3. Organize your workspace:

Productivity and well-being are closely related to the environment in which we work. Take the time to organize and personalize your workspace. Add elements that inspire you, such as plants or photographs, to create a pleasant and personal atmosphere.

4. Coffee breaks:

Coffee breaks are not only times to recharge, but also to build relationships with your colleagues. Enjoy regular breaks where you can share stories, challenges and achievements. These informal moments enhance relationships and strengthen bonds between team members, creating a more cohesive work environment.

5. Encourage creativity:

Restarting the course with fresh ideas is crucial to the growth of any company. Organize brainstorming sessions where teams can freely share innovative ideas. It fosters an open environment where all voices are heard, which can lead to creative solutions for future challenges.

6. Healthy new habits:

Take advantage of the transition back to the office to adopt new healthy habits. Opt for a balanced diet and bring your own nutritious lunches. Consider biking or walking to work to incorporate physical activity into your day. Remember that many of our spaces have bike parking 😉.

7. Communicate your expectations:

Communication is key during this transition. Talk to your manager and colleagues about your expectations and needs in terms of flexible hours, new workspaces or any other considerations. By expressing your wishes clearly and respectfully, you will be able to find a balance that works for you and the team.

8. Set realistic goals:

As you get used to the pace of work again, set realistic and achievable goals. Break your tasks into smaller steps and celebrate your accomplishments. This will help you maintain motivation and a sense of accomplishment as you adjust to the office routine.

9. Productive afterworks:

Afterworks are excellent opportunities to foster networking and strengthen professional connections. Attend after-work events where colleagues can share experiences, ideas and projects outside of the work environment. These informal gatherings can lead to valuable collaborations and new perspectives.

10. Prioritize self-care:

Change can be exhausting, so it’s critical to take care of yourself. Maintain healthy habits, such as exercising regularly, getting enough sleep and eating a balanced diet. Also, find times to relax and unwind, whether it’s taking a walk after lunch or practicing breathing techniques.


Returning to the office is an opportunity to create a more balanced and connected work experience. By implementing these ten strategies, you can build strong relationships, enjoy nature, foster creativity and take care of your physical and mental well-being. Maintain a positive and flexible mindset during this transition, and you’ll be well on your way to an enriching and rewarding work experience.
