I stumbled upon a video on YouTube 2 days ago that portrayed a comic version of how hard it will be to get back to our normal routines. To be honest, I laughed so much, but then the reality that lied behind the comedy hit me.
I'm not one to distinguish between men and women, but ladies, I know that settling back into the workplace is especially hard for you.
For those of you who need further explanation, a women’s expected time to get ready for work is an hour, more or less. If she is a mother, then add to that hour the time she’ll need to get her children ready. Also, she will have to drive her children to school and herself to work. The house should be clean, food should be ready, and the children should be done with their homework. However, while we are in confinement, a woman doesn’t have to worry about dressing up, nor waking up earlier than expected so she could cater to her kids and avoid the traffic.
Men, I haven’t forgotten you. the issue regarding traffic is a common denominator between the genders. Getting to roam around the house wearing the bare minimum and getting as comfortable as possible is abused during those times. I don’t want to diminish men for their work with their children and the house, because we're in the 21st century and gender roles in the family have shifted drastically.
Working from the comfort of our homes and at our own pace is the best thing that could’ve possibly happened to us, because it is now proven that a business can be fully functional from home. We have found loopholes and solutions to be as efficient as possible, and guess what, we proved that the results of efficacy have barely shifted since the start of confinement.
The last thing I'm trying to do here is to get you more demotivated. This is all to say that you’re not wrong and alone to think that going back to work is going to be hard.
Employees, try to keep in mind that if you are settling in just perfectly, some might not, and it is completely okay.
Employers, go easy on your colleagues, and especially on yourself. You don’t need to fake your comfort because, at this point, we are all on the same boat.
Together, we can make this as smooth as possible, by communicating our feelings and thoughts with each other.
We are interested to know how you feel about going back to work, so feel free to share any thoughts in the comment box below.
