At first, I was obsessed with all the news coming in but that was making me more anxious and I found it difficult to get anything done. I’m definitely slower when it comes to responding to requests. In the theme of being kind to myself, I don’t beat myself up about it. My target is usually to get one thing done or even started, then to add on it as I go forward. I also check in more (than I would ordinarily) with family and friends in order to give me peace of mind.

  • I keep a diary of tasks to be achieved each day. A paper diary — I get great satisfaction from crossing things off my list.
  • All my meetings and calls are put on my online calendar that is linked to my phone, with a 30-minute reminder in case I forgot about the meeting and I need time to prepare or change location.
  • I have different music playlists that I can play depending on my mood.

There will definitely be more space and appreciation for digital solutions that support remote and flexible working. Hopefully, this will go hand in hand with more sustainable support work benefits, insurance policies, bank solutions, childcare solutions for remote/day workers because that is what the future of work will look like.
