It’s been one month since the recommendation came down to work from home, social distance and stay-at-home. How are you doing? Most of our team generally work from home, although we do have the two offices, one in Plymouth and one in Campton. We get together each Tuesday for a meeting, to catch up, share idea’s and solve problems. Since this pandemic we have been meeting virtually, and those who spent more time in our office (👋 Admin) transitioned to work from home on April 3rd. So, we are in week 2 of our work-from-home model and starting to feel what everyone else is feeling.
For some of us, we have children in school that need assistance with online learning. For others, our pets are looking at us like something is wrong – why are we still home? We have replaced in-person meetings and appointments with virtual ones. Who has stock in Zoom? They’re in a sweet spot right now, unlike the rest of us. It’s been nice being able to get more done without having to get in the car, but that also means the natural “breaks” in our day are not happening.
Maintaining normalcy in a not-so-normal time is tricky. Having to shut down the laptop, put the phone away, or simply take a break from your family is tough, but needs to be done if we’re going to make it through. Here are a couple resources that give great ideas on how to maintain your mental health while staying at home.
