Vigo
A straight forward assistance tool designed to aid home workers that find it difficult to detach themselves mentally from work. Due to the increase of Working from Home (WFH) positions, mentality becomes a priority for home workers. For example, reducing social contact and team coordination unintentionally increases the chances of symptoms such as anxiety, anger, stress, and depression. The goal is to help maintain mental stability through a rising work-life culture that is unnatural. “Almost a third of Brits working from home (30%) have been finding it difficult separating their home lives from their work lives, with over a quarter (27%) reporting difficulties switching off at the end of the day or working week.” (Nuffieldhealth, 2021). Vigo aims to improve mental well-being in a non-confrontational, inclusive manner by helping the user differentiate between work/life mentally. Psychologically attaching habits that only occur during working sessions helps you differentiate your situation when you are no longer working, as you are no longer executing the same habits.
