Working remotely can have a negative impact on your mental health. Therefore, it's important to keep track of your mood. Here's a way of doing just that.
We all know that being in an office environment can sometimes be toxic, but what about working remotely?
It turns out that the work-life balance for remote workers is just as important as it is for employees who are on site.
It's crucial for all employees to know how they're feeling and what they need in order to maintain their sanity while working solo from home or on the road.
And that starts by tracking your mood

As a remote worker, you may not have the same daily interactions with your co-workers that an office environment provides.
This can make it hard to notice when something is off in your life or if there’s been a change in how you feel about work.
In order to maintain good mental health and prevent burnout, I recommend taking time for yourself each day.
One way to do this is by keeping a journal of how you feel throughout the different stages of the workday- from morning commute all the way through dinner at home after wrapping up emails on your laptop.
This free template will help track what's going well and what might need some improvement without having to worry about anything else!
