There is still some concern if vaccinated workers should go back to the brick and mortar office or wait till a more favorable time. Some parents of special need students and businesses that have remain shut for a long time are taking a step further considering their personal losses. They are asking the court to compel schools to open for onsite classes and for businesses to be allowed to open.
Last week, the United States reached a vaccination milestone that many assumed impossible a year ago. It was stated that 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered. This is an unprecedented achievement. And it highlights the remarkable work that pharmaceutical companies, pharmacies, governments and logistical operations have done over the past year.

RETURN TO WORK SURVEY OUTCOME – once the pandemic is over.
- Only about three-quarters of office workers want to return to the office. This does not mean that most office workers want to return to their normal day jobs.
- Only one-quarter of office workers actually want to return to work in person full-time.
- Half want their employers to institute a “hybrid model,” which combines work from home with work at the office.
- The remaining quarter do not wish to return to in-person work at all and would rather arrange a permanent work-from-home scheme with their bosses.
Emotional stress, including “stress from lack of control in the workplace or from life events,” creates susceptibility to physical illness. This was affirmed twenty years ago in a British Medical Journal article as summarized here by the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
Giving employees more control over their jobs does more than just reduce stress-related illness. It also decreases employee mortality. The key is empowering them to set their own goals, set their own schedules, prioritize their decision making and … have a voice in the goal-setting process.
Giving employees a chance to help shape the future of work will give them more skin in the game. It will deepen their connection to an organization. Finally, it gives them a sense of job ownership and control and will improve their well-being while benefiting the organization.
Self-love is the process of knowing yourself, connecting with your inner self, overcoming self-limiting beliefs, letting go of everything that doesn’t serve you, and falling in love with yourself.
Self-love helps silence the fear of rejection, our inner critic, and instead befriend it to serve us rather than taunt us. And we develop confidence in what we stand for, when we know who we are from within. With self-love, we are able to let go of self-judgment, negative thoughts, opinions, and people who are not aligned with us.
When we accept ourselves wholly for who we are, people around us also start seeing us in the same light. Likewise, when we love what we do and do what we love, we are alive and soaring in all that we do. This further draws others with positive energy to us. Ultimately, that power of love for yourself, will not only elevate your relationship with yourself, but enhance and deepen your relationship with work, family, life, and everything around you.
