Like so many of us around the globe, I am working for home at the moment.
While my work mostly clothes sit in the wardrobe, I am trying not to just be totally scruffy and dressed for the weekend, though I am wearing interesting socks at times, and love just wearing my Birkenstock’s instead of shoes all day.
I have set up my working area upstairs, which is good (away from the kitchen) and bad (when the sunshine, it gets hot sitting in the window). Staring out the window though is a welcome distraction at times, especially when the weather is interesting, such as this morning’s mist and sunshine at the same time.
It is hard to work at home at times though. The day is punctuated with tea breaks, lunch, the 1pm and 3pm updates on the situation here in New Zealand, a final team meeting of the day, perhaps half a barre class (today), with work accompanied by a never ending stream of podcasts (such as The Happiness Lab and Table Manners).
It is not so easy working at home every day, especially as the country is in lockdown as well, so no chances to meet someone for lunch or to to an actual Pilates class. Anyone else struggling or have good tips? It is not as if I work for myself, I have things to do for the organisation I work for. Handy hints very welcome!
