Just Act Normal

Anali Martinez Gonsalez usually posts videos about food, office, and travel. Her recent video about dealing with a panic attack on office day struck a chord with several users on TikTok who have experienced the same feeling at some point while switching from work from home to the office.

Hybrid and remote work is an appealing option to many workers who prefer the calm of home while working. According to Gallup, five out of ten employees are working a hybrid model, in addition to several others who are working completely remotely. In fact, hybrid work has increased by 7 percent over the past few months. Hybrid and remote work come with their own set of benefits. Forbes reports suggest that over 74 percent of people working a hybrid model have witnessed significant improvement in their mental health. However, as the saying goes, every coin has two sides. Hybrid work has its share of disadvantages too, the most prominent one being the feeling of loneliness and the lack of companionship one finds in a conventional work environment. Perhaps the best way forward to draw the maximum benefits might be to strike a balance.
