This week, we spoke to Julia, Noelle, Claire and Rachael…
As a product based company, we’re not used to working from home and have been finding the last few weeks a definite learning curve! This week, we checked in with Julia, Noelle, Claire and Rachael who have given us their top tips on WFH, and have passed on a few other small brands that they’re supporting right now!
What are your top tips for staying motivated whilst working from home?
Having worked from home for quite a few years now, I’ve found that sticking to a routine (even if just loosely!) is key! So always sitting down to my laptop at 9.30ish with a cup of coffee in hand and my to-do list on the side is the best way to start the day for me and the rest of the day just unfolds from there!
Have you started learning anything new?
I’ve actually gone back to knitting socks – I used to do this in my office lunchbreaks when I first moved to London! I find knitting incredibly thearaputic and it’s nice to do something you know how to already so you’re not having to think too much – it’s nice to be using your hands rhythmically but let the brain rest at the same time! I’m sharing the pattern and my progress on my Instagram Highlights (@stylonylon). You’ll find me currently turning the heel!
What have you been enjoying cooking / eating at home?
I’ve just got back into making a lunchtime soup! I used to do this when I was at university and it’s great to have some leftover for the next day! Super simple, garlic, leek, a carrot and two medium poatatoes heated in a bit of oil; bring to the boil adding stock, salt and pepper; then mash and add a handful of lentils in the last 20 minutes!
