Take out a moment from your busy schedule and appreciate your team members for putting in all their efforts and showing the efficiency in this time of distress. This will boost their morale and give them a sense of belonging, urging them to go on with new vigor with a smile on their faces.

  1. Breaks are Important.

All work and no rest make anybody a dull person. A short break after regular intervals can reinvigorate your mind. Giving yourself a dopamine rush by doing what you like can pacify your stress. A casual chat with your work buddies during lunch hours can be a huge stress buster and can also keep you abreast of the work done.

Tip: You can also tell your workmates about how much you are missing them and their lunch boxes too.

Take some time off the email inbox to rest your eyes, instead, binge watch series at night or listen to your favorite music, to have a fulfilled day. Also, stretch your body to avoid becoming a couch potato.
