It’s day 4 of lockdown in the UK and I’m enjoying working from the safety of my home while remaining comfortable in my extensive loungewear collection. I was well and truly prepared in that respect and I’ve got enough loungewear to see me through the next few weeks. For those of you who are not used to spending this much time at home, I’ve linked some of my favourite loungewear pieces.
I’m not a ‘get up and get ready’ type of homeworker. I’m indulging in the ability to attend meetings in my pyjamas while colleagues are blissfully unaware. My favourite part though is snack time. I’ve got more choice than ever as I take all my food with me for the day at work which is sufficient but there’s no element of surprise and limited choice. Now I’ve got the full pantry of goodies which isn’t going to be good for my waistline.
Working from home can sometimes be isolating however at the moment, a lot of people are in the same boat. We’ve got so many ways of keeping in touch these days. Drop your colleague an email, not with anything work related, just check-in to see how they’re doing. Keep the chat and banter you’d normally have going in the office through other means like chat on teams or give them a call, again not just to catch up on work related things, general chit chat can bring some light relief.
It’s important to focus on the positives through this difficult time and if you can find light in the simple things then you’ll have a greater appreciation generally when this is all over.
Take care and please, stay home.
