You up for the normal lives again, back to Office?

Well it’s a tricky question as a lot has changed/happened in the last three years. We have had faced the dreadful phases of the pandemic and lockdown. Innumerable lives lost, losses that can never be made whole. On the very same time, there were many who lost their sources of income and the remaining were working from home except frontline workers. These exceptions were indeed exceptional, who put their lives on line to save many.

Now, everything seems to be getting better and peaceful. Everything has reopened, people are back to work, children to school though few companies are still continuing with work from home or alternative days at work regime. With this progress a lot of us has got the idea that pandemic has ended for good, but this idea is far from reality as new cases are emerging now and the situation has become very uncertain. According to some news reports this is the beginning of 4th wave as if the last three hadn’t caused enough trouble. We cannot let that happen and along with that we should not ignore the fact that many who have survived the virus, are still facing the aftereffects. Then there are people who have disturbed sleep schedules and lifestyles and now suffering from depression. And getting back to normal lives is going to take some patience and lots of effort. So, now comes the point that what we should do?

As Employees: One should get vaccinated, also we do not know if our peers and coworkers are vaccinated therefore, take proper precautions at all times. Wear good quality masks and maintain social distancing as much as possible. Exercise to improve your strength and stamina, giving you that extra power you may need to fight the infection. Do not forget about immunity take ImmuneSmart, an Indian cow colostrum with highest IgG (antibodies) to boost your immunity and Kee7 enriched with antioxidants and multivitamins. Lastly, don’t forget to eat healthy and take ample rest.

As Employers: One’s responsibility is to make sure that all employees are fully vaccinated and wear masks during the working hours, one can also provide good quality masks to their employees. Yoga workshops can be initiated in order to enhance both their mental and physical health. Make them aware about the importance of immunity and how it defends us against many diseases and infections. One can also opt for approaches like flexible working hours, alternative days and work from home that are suitable for both employer and employee.

All said and done, both employee and the employers are in the dilemma as there is no one fits all solution foe diverse types of businesses. Which leaves us with dual responsibility of pushing the economic growth to pre-pandemic levels while with avoiding 4th or 5th wave. In order to achieve this goal of ours both employers and employees have to collaborate to bring the best. Moreover, on the occasion of World Day for Safety & Health at Work make it an opportunity to create a healthy and safe place for all. Let’s stand and fight together against this another wave of pandemic. Make the world safe by being safe.
