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!”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“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.”

“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!!”

“I wanted to take this moment to thank you and your staff for making the Athletic Celebration absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the event. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Thank you for your help from start to finish.”

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”

“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!”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“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.”
