Linked – Can remote work cause depression?

Can working from home all the time be a cause of mental health issues? Sure, it can. But it doesn’t have to. I find it very rewarding, but I have also been doing it for years and know myself well enough to know what I need to do for myself. This article covers some of those things as well as the mental health benefits that having a flexible work situation can offer.

Remote work can be challenging, but it can also be a fantastic opportunity to create a work environment that suits your needs and your well-being. Take the time to prioritize self-care, foster meaningful connections, and find balance in your life, both professionally and personally. You deserve it.

The most important thing is recognizing what works for you. Working from home opens up opportunities to people who can’t, for many reasons, travel to an office every day. It can, however, be lonely at times. Finding the right balance is key. Finding the places where you can still connect with people outside of work is key. You’re no longer spending a third of your day in the same location as your coworkers and connecting by default. Still, you can connect and be more involved in your community because you’re not spending another couple of hours commuting. You can spend more time with your family.

You have to figure out what works and doesn’t work. Don’t let anyone tell you that it will make you depressed. That’s not how depression works. We are all individuals, and how we work is part of that. What I need for my mental health may not be the same as what you need. And it’s important to remember that your employees are individuals as well. They might not all need the same things. That doesn’t mean you can’t support their mental health and manage burnout. In fact, it allows you to create a flexible work environment that allows everyone to succeed.
