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

“Thanks so much for a great week of food here at SCH to start off 2021. Everything has been fantastic. The kids were loving the Chinese food and boxes today. The Moo Shu Pork was amazing. Great work!”

“I ALWAYS feel spoiled by the meal offerings at CSW (The Cambridge School of Weston) and am entirely grateful for it. As I eat today's delicious and lavish lunch (and think about yesterday's as well), I can't tell you how much I feel so well cared for here, both with the food and by the dining hall staff. CSW cares for us in so many ways, both big and small.”

“Thank you for all the accommodations for food intolerances and allergies.  I continue to hear positive comments about the quality of the food and the options. Please pass along our thanks and gratitude to your whole team!!!!”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“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.”

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

“We can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into getting this emergency shipment of water to our Waco, Tx office. As always, you guys pulled out all the stops and did everything possible to help! I know it doesn’t seem like much to you, but our employees in TX that need drinking water are truly grateful. I feel so fortunate to work with such true professionals. I think you set the bar that your competition wishes they could match!”

“I just wanted to express my thanks and give two thumbs up for the updates to our lunch menu. My selections have been quite tasty—corned beef Reuben, jambalaya—and I appreciate that, too! I am looking forward to trying some new items in the coming weeks. Keep up the good work!”

“We want to take a moment to celebrate all the employees who worked on the front lines during unprecedented times. Your efforts and dedication to going above and beyond are noticed and appreciated. Thank you for being the heart and soul of CulinArt Group. We couldn’t do this without you. Chef Jay and Chef Paul have been so awesome in the Hubbell Café.  There has been significant change, but they take it in stride and keep the delicious food coming.  We truly appreciate them!”

“I’m the GM for Branson [Ultrasonics] and based in the Brookfield office.  This is the first week that the café has been up and running in our new headquarters and just want to acknowledge the great job Adam Schnittert and the CulinArt staff onsite have done.  Our employees’ feedback thus far has been very positive.  The expanded options and menu quality have been very well received.  Just want to send you a quick note of thanks.”
