We could all use some advice on making office moves a bit easier on your mental health. With a brand-new commute to map out and a whole new workspace to set up, there’s a lot to think about. This advice from a member of the Thrive Global community will help you make the most of your new trip to work and your new workspace.

“Navigating an office move means reconfiguring your commute and redesigning your workspace. While both can be stressful and bring on anxiety, they can also be a breath of fresh air. If the office building’s location is changing, you should plan your commute to make sure your new route and traffic are factored in. For simple desk moves, I find it helpful to think of how you see your space and what would make you most effective on a day-to-day basis.”

—Ashlee Simpson, communications consultant, New York, NY
