From the Editor

When the pandemic began, I decided that each morning I would post an inspirational quote on social media. These quotes help me to set an intention for the day. This daily ritual allows me to center myself and focus on achieving with joy and fulfillment the occupations of that day. I thought I would share some of these quotes with you:

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.” John F. Kennedy

Miracles happen every day, change your perception of what a miracle is and you’ll see them all around you.” Jon Bon Jovi

“Kindness is always fashionable, and always welcome.” Amelia Barr

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” Thich Nhat Hanh

“It is better to travel well than to arrive.” Buddha

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” Confucius

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” Albert Einstein

To learn more about setting an intention, I recommend The Chopra Center:

This issue of WORK contains 22 articles in total including five articles in our COVID Commentary section; and four articles in a special section on Ergonomics in Design. My gratitude is extended to Francesca Tosi, who is the guest editor of this special section. I know you will find many of these articles of interest to you on topics such as a systematic review of ergonomics and telework, carpal tunnel syndrome, teamwork and corporate social responsibility among other interesting topics.
