Have you been working from home or living at work? Here is a simple trick that you can use to manage the hassles of working from home and our hyperkinetic worklife. It is understandably difficult to not dwell on the stressors of life. But home working during the pandemic is a stressor that not many had an option to take or leave.

For example, the best sales people used the Third Space between calls to get over the previous call and move into the next one with optimism and enthusiasm. Also, the best leaders used the Third Space between meetings to compose themselves and get their head space right and intentions clear for the next meeting.
Reflect on the previous space – the last event. Look at what have been achieved, and don’t focus on what has gone wrong. Compliment yourself on the positives from the event or meetings, acknowledge anything you could have improved on, and then move on.
Rest, pause, relax, take a deep breath, clear the mind and catch your breath before the next activity.
Reset to heighten sense of control in preparation for the next space. Re-clarify your intention for the next space and what exact behaviours you need to exhibit to make the intention a reality. For example, when coming home from work, re-establish your intention for the home space and the specific behaviours you want to exhibit once you cross the threshold.
