Work Life Balance: Is your routine benefitting your happiness and your business?

We’ve all had to rework our day-to-day lives to accommodate the pandemic, but have we managed to balance the scales of work and relaxation?


Rovva surveyed 1,005 UK adults to find out exactly how happy they are with their routines, and how they feel it has impacted their productivity and wellbeing.

The research revealed that 79% of respondents are happy with their new routine since the pandemic, whilst 80% said they feel just as productive as they did before coronavirus!

Feeling productive is a huge bonus for our wellbeing as well as our work, giving us the boost we need to finish a particularly stressful day, but it’s not just about improving our working.

63% of people also said that their perspective on life and what is important to them has changed, and over half of them said they’ll try to keep their new habits in the following months.

Whilst at the beginning of the pandemic forced us apart physically, taking a huge toll on our mental health, 75% of those surveyed said they actually see just as much or more of their family and friends now.

All of these factors lead into a potential improvement in the UK’s general happiness and wellbeing, but it can be difficult to see what you need to change to feel the positive effects of a healthier work life balance.

As a result, Rovva created a calculator to let people compare their routine to the routine that brings the most happiness to those in the UK, making it much easier to make small changes to hopefully improve people’s general wellbeing.

Jon Abrahams from Rovva, said: “We wanted to find out how much people’s routine has changed and if there are any elements of our new lifestyle that we’d like to keep after the pandemic has passed.

“It’s great to see that people found a way to amend their routines and we thought it’d be fun to allow everyone to check how their routine compares to the nation’s one.”
