Getting ready…

I was totally unprepared. I admit that quite openly. I did not have any face masks at home. Did not have food supplies. My Wifi was not able to handle long online sessions. Now it is different. I am usually so organised and equipped with my lists right? So I have decided to mention aContinue reading “Getting ready…”

Self-care as a part of routine

One thing that I have noticed around me is an increase in tension. Many people seem to be under a lot of stress. They seem more stressed and more sensitive. I am not saying everyone but definitely a large number of people. And I am one of them for sure. Staying at home uncovered lotsContinue reading “Self-care as a part of routine”

Going back to what I know…

Well, in times of crises I have always done it. Went home, talked to my grandma, met up with dear friends, looked at old photos, played old song…So this time I am going back to something I thought I have experienced and shelved. I even wrote a post about it and thought to myself: “DoneContinue reading “Going back to what I know…”

Making wrong choices and admitting to myself…

I have been sifting through a number of online courses. I do suffer from an shiny object syndrome  – and that does not help when I am choosing which way to go. Before I knew, I had to sign up for a ‘free course’ offered by my employer. So the choice for made for me!Continue reading “Making wrong choices and admitting to myself…”

From all of this I gather that the future is going to be about activity, flexibility andContinue reading “Thinking about the next step…”

Mini-blocks and mini-burnouts

This might be useful for someone who works at home with a great intensity. That is what I have been doing during the lockdown and it occurred to me – that instead of having a big creative block or a big burnout, I experience a series of small ones. Not sure why it is, butContinue reading “Mini-blocks and mini-burnouts”

Keeping it simple and going back to basics

My last post might have been a bit long-winded, I think… So today I am doing something different. Basically putting out a checklist of what I am focusing now during these strange times. I like to write short lists to streamline my thoughts, especially after watching or reading something inspirational or motivational. What do IContinue reading “Keeping it simple and going back to basics”

Working from home – because that is the only way now…

So…I have completed several weeks of work from home now. And just few months ago I thought that I will never work from home again…. This time round I found it quite hard. I was distracted by what was going on around me. I spent hours watching videos about the pandemic; what to prepare, howContinue reading “Working from home – because that is the only way now…”

Working from home again – what next?

Working from home become the new norm in a last couple weeks. Even people who never intended work from home – simply have to. I found myself paradoxically at home again. Nothing new to me and I eased to it quickly. However, my old fears and problems reappeared: …I can be made redundant any time.Continue reading “Working from home again – what next?”
