15 Apr A vision of home working

With the recent pandemic, lots of us have been fortunate enough to work from home. Whilst working from home may be seen as a bit of a luxury, I can’t tell you what I would give to be back in the office! Working from home has made me appreciate the space I work in and it has made me realise how much I took advantage of having routine in my life. I do miss our ‘South Office’ but I’m deciding to take away the positives of this experience and being thankful of what I have learnt; time management, structure, self-motivation and having the ability to switch off – which is a skill on its own as I am living and working in the same space.

My top tips to make working from home a success!

  • Keep to your usual working hours, this wont throw your body clock off when you go back to work
  • EXERCISE, not only for the physical benefits… it really helps clear your mind!
  • Continue to schedule breaks in – this will break up the day and will keep things as normal as possible for you.
  • Still get up, shower, brush your teeth, get dressed – this will automatically make you feel more productive and ready for the day!
