Working from Home – Find your Groove

2020 has really been off to a strong start – presenting a lot of changes, adjustments, and “new normal” to our lives. Some of us may find that we are home more often and even working from home. While we all navigate this uncharted territory – it is important to show ourselves compassion and allow ourselves to feel our feelings. With that said – here are some tips and tricks that may help us find our groove while we all spend a little more time at home.

1. Create Normalcy: during this time of change, it feels nice to have parts of our routine stay the same. Whether it is our morning workout, what we eat for breakfast, what time we wake up, what time we have lunch, when we take walking breaks, etc – whatever it is, having just a bit of our “regular” schedule may help us feel more settled with so many other things changing.

2. Take Advantage of Time at Home: some of us typically have a very hectic schedule with little time to squeeze in anything extra. While we are staying home and staying safe, appreciate time with family and friends – time that you may not have had if things were going according to plan. Create new memories and make this extra time at a home a positive and heartwarming experience that you will always remember.

3. Utilize your Resources: with so many resources at our fingertips, it has never been easier to stay in touch with people all around the world. Stay connected to the people in your life through video chats, social media, a simple phone call, and the many other ways the internet has allowed us to reach out and catch up.

4. Make a List: sometimes, having a to-do list or schedule helps us stay on track and feel productive. Things included on this list can be long term goals, quick tasks, housework, or gentle reminders (like eat a snack or take some deep breaths). Remember, the extra time we have does not have to be filled only with productive tasks.

5. Manage Expectations: continuing with the last tip – start to appreciate and realize what is realistic to accomplish. Life does not always need a specific agenda. This extra time does not mean you have to check off all the items on previous lists or long-term goals that have been brewing over the past few months. Use this time as an opportunity to be curious. Try doing things that don’t necessarily have a purpose – like coloring just to color.

6. Practice Self Care: self-care looks different for everyone. Whether it’s playing with your pet, watching TV, listening to music, reading a book, taking a bubble bath, or baking your favorite treat – put aside some time to care for yourself.

7. Sleep: despite us not leaving the house that often, we may feel more tired and need the same, if not more, sleep than usual. There is a lot of uncertainty and worry during times like these, which is tiring and straining on our bodies. Be sure to rest more if you need it!

8. Stay Hydrated: when we are out and about, we usually carry a water bottle with us as a friendly reminder to drink and stay hydrated. When at home – keep your water bottle close by or cup of water to maintain that reminder. It is still important to stay hydrated!

9. Try Something New: have you been wanting to learn something new? Check out online resources and start up a new hobby you have been wanting to learn! Knitting? Learning a new language? Get friends and family involved to make it social!

10. Enjoy: last but not least – it may be difficult at times, but try to enjoy yourself. Spread joy, be kind to yourself and others, and we will all get through this together!

What our clients are saying

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“With all the prep work from Winterim ramping up and classes continuing as usual, it's a busy time to be a Forman teacher. Imagine my delight, tired as I was, when I delved into the upscale-restaurant-quality chicken parmesan our dining hall served last night. Forman is all about support, and providing our students with a dinner of that quality is just as important a measure of support as anything that happens in a classroom.”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“I just wanted to send a quick note acknowledging the wonderful food and service provided by our new vendor.  The food was delicious and the students consistently commented on how amazing everything was.  What a difference! In addition, the staff and management were so easy to deal with – very professional.  They were punctual, responsive and attentive to our needs.  Thank you again for making a positive change to the quality of life of our students.”

“Just a note to let you know that you ROCK! You always pour yourself into [The] Webb [Schools] to make the dining experience the very best it can be. I’ve been hearing such positive things about the food quality this year – something I hope you feel really good about. And it is times like this with the Coronavirus that leaders truly emerge. You have been unbelievably accommodating in making last minute changes to how we serve, etc. and all else we do in the dining hall and I just want you to know how much I deeply appreciate your devotion to this special community. You are a key part of it – you model beautifully the very best of Webb. So thank you!!”

“Thank You for once again going above and beyond to ensure that our programs are a success. Your willingness to customize menus as well as provide your expert guidance to develop a well-rounded selection of offerings is what keeps us coming back! The food is always exceptional! Our programs would not be a success without the CulinArt team!”
