How has the "great return to office" been for you?

If you are sitting at the new hot-desking space, trying to block out the office chatter and wondering what to say over lunch with your colleagues - you are not alone in wishing you are still working from home.

To help you make the transition back to office, we have a survival guide on dealing with seven tricky situations.

The return to the workplace may have also affected your sleep routine. Tune in to this podcast for tips on how to get a good night's sleep.

Meanwhile, enjoy the long weekend - before it's back to office.
