Celebrating your own wins

There are many benefits to working remotely, such as setting your own schedule or working with teams across the globe. However, remote workers may also feel less engaged in a company's team and overarching culture when there is little in-person interaction.

Without some external validation, it's easy to feel disconnected from your work. That's why it's important to ensure you celebrate your work accomplishments.

MORE IDEAS FROM How to celebrate big achievements when your entire team works remotely

Every year, try to do something special to celebrate another year of successful remote work. 

Keep the following in mind:

  • Activities. Do you want a day at the spa? A weekend hike? A list will help you prioritize and plan.
  • Budget. Establish a spending cap. You could base it on a milestone, such as after getting a promotion or new client.
  • Time frame. How long do you want to be away?
  • Location. How long will it take to get there?
  • The number of travel companions. Do you want a group activity or go away solo?

Celebrating doesn't have to be extravagant.

  • When you complete a difficult task, enjoy a few moments away from your screen.
  • Set up lunches and coffee dates with colleagues and friends to celebrate each other's wins.
  • Find an accountability partner who can notice when you're showing signs of burnout.
  • Carve breaks into your day. It's easy to slip into an always-on mentality. Take breaks throughout the day so that you can come back fresh and ready to go.

1. Surround Yourself With Positive People

It's important to choose the people you surround yourself with, and to ensure that they bring out the best in you, that they lift you up in difficult moments and are a positive force in your life.

Negative people are toxic, and and can mold and inform your outlook on life, and how you see yourself.

Life is short, surround yourself with people who are positive, and inspire you to be the best version of yourself.

Birthday Blues

Birthday depression can be described as a general sadness on or around your birthday. Birthday blues are very common. Reasons for feeling down around your birthday include:

  • Aging. Birthdays can remind us that we are one year older.
  • High expectations. We may be disappointed by not having our expectations met for a birthday party or gifts.
  • Lack of accomplishments. You are feeling dissatisfied with your achievements since the previous year.
  • Social pressure. When we compare our birthdays with our friends' parties, we might feel our celebration is just not good enough.
  • Less excitement. Adult birthdays aren't as exciting as our birthdays as kids, and that mismatch can cause the birthday blues.
  • Milestone birthdays, such as 16, 21, 30, 40, 50, 60. Some people may feel sad if they don't have a huge party to celebrate their milestone birthday.
  • Less love. Turning 18, you're congratulated as an adult. At 45, it is just another birthday.
