Alumni Engagement Co-ordinator
You would think by three months in I’d be used to working from home, but to be honest some days it’s still hard to believe. Our team works very closely together and there is always a lot of informal brainstorming happening in the office. It’s been quite a challenge for us to muddle through this new way of connecting with each other, but we’re making it work!
It sounds cliché but exercise has kept me sane the last few months. With the ‘new normal’ lacking commutes and an over-booked social calendar, I now find I have time to get up and run every day before I start work. I’ve struggled with back problems the last couple of years and have finally discovered the benefits of yoga; something I’ll admit I always rolled my eyes at and said I didn’t have time for.
I love to cook and bake, so have spent my weekends trying new recipes and teaching myself new techniques. My advice for home working is to make sure you maintain a healthy balance between work and home. It’s so important, especially now, to take time for yourself. Find what works for you and be sure to switch off!
