To take it a step further, the act of sharing positive news can help to bolster morale and boost optimism for both in-person and remote workers, alike. A 2020 MIT-Sloan Management Review study conducted at the height of the pandemic revealed that employees who received an experimental nudge to consume – and discuss – good news were 18% more optimistic, 32% less anxious, and 12% more likely to feel grateful than their un-nudged counterparts.
The takeaway: good news is good for you. So, as you peruse the headlines, curate some positive stories to share with your friends and colleagues. This habit can also serve as a bookend to the beginning or end of your work day, helping to create boundaries that support a healthy work/life balance.
