My best lockdown life

We couldn’t ever imagine still working from home after this long. But here we are, and if I dare say, not only managing but THRIVING.

I almost feel guilty for how well suited I am to working from home. A tiredness I’ve been plagued with for years has disappeared. My focus has never been so sharp. The excitement of a new challenge! Restrictions fuel creativity and innovation, and we’re grabbing them by the horns.

We’ve found a new way of working that will likely change the office landscape long after lockdown… Even if video calls still make me nervous sweat!
