Schedule super quick meetings just to check in with colleagues. Read more. And try to fit “moments of transition” into your daily schedule.

Those are some tips from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella to help manage well-being with the new WFH lifestyle.

Nadella spoke this week at the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council. He said he’s focused on three major considerations of how the nature is work is changing amid the pandemic: how collaboration happens, how learning happens inside companies, and how to ensure employees aren’t burning out.

The last point has become even more important over the past several months as workers conduct multiple meetings per day via video and don’t have the same interactions with colleagues at a physical office. Microsoft studies show that people are now working after hours and on weekends more frequently, and that remote work is leading to more stress and mental fatigue.

Nadella said people can get more tired because of the concentration required during video calls. That’s why Microsoft earlier this summer rolled out the new Microsoft Teams “Together” mode, a feature for video meetings that places participants against a shared virtual background, out of the traditional grid view, to help create the perception of sitting together.

Nadella also called out the new “virtual commute” feature for Teams, which uses automation tech to help users close out tasks and designate work for the following day, log their sentiment about the work day, and direct them into a guided meditation process. Microsoft said its research finds that the blurred lines between work and home are hurting remote workers’ feelings of well-being.

Whether it’s the bus ride to and from work, or even walking down a hallway for your next meeting, there are fewer “transition times”

Seo Hyun Jin Gives Park Bo Gum Heartwarming Advice In Her Cameo Appearance On “Record Of Youth”

tvN’s “Record of Youth” released new stills of Seo Hyun Jin from her special appearance in the show!

The drama is about young people who struggle for their dreams and their love amidst the harsh realities of the modeling industry. Park Bo Gum stars as Sa Hye Joon, an aspiring actor and model, Park So Dam stars as Ahn Jung Ha, an aspiring makeup artist, and Byun Woo Seok stars as Won Hae Hyo, a model who wants to make a name for himself without relying on his family.


In the previous episode, Sa Hye Joon’s drama casting opportunity fell apart due to a scheme by his past agency’s CEO Lee Tae Su (Lee Chang Hoon). Although he didn’t show his disappointment to his manager Lee Min Jae (Shin Dong Mi), Sa Hye Joon was shocked nonetheless and had a difficult time.

The new stills reveal that Sa Hye Joon has been cast in a different drama. In the photos, Sa Hye Joon is wearing a medical gown on a film set. Despite being a rookie actor, he showcases everything he has in front of his co-star and top actress Lee Hyun Soo (Seo Hyun Jin). Lee Hyun Soo also watches Sa Hye Joon with interest, and Sa Hye Joon has bright eyes after talking with her, appearing to have come to some realization from her advice.

The upcoming episode will depict Sa Hye Joon getting a step closer to becoming a super star. In a recent preview, Lee Min Jae had delivered Sa Hye Joon news that there was a role available for an actor with modeling experience, so viewers are curious to find out what interesting events will await Sa Hye Joon with this new project.
