    Now it feels like something bigger: a sign that life is finding its way back to what it was once before, at least somewhat.

    Though your succulent might look a little sadder and the coffee mug you forgot to grab (not realizing this global scare was going to last more than a weekend) has some fuzz in there, everything is pretty much how you left it.

    Transitioning back to your old habits will feel more like a new schedule than returning to a routine. Your team had to adjust to working from home and they may experience some difficulty adjusting back to an office setting.

    To help ease you and your team back into the new/old normal, here are our top ways to welcome them back and make the fresh start a positive experience.
