“By late morning, I need a break”
RECRUITMENT CONSULTANT SUE STEVENS SAYS HER ‘LITTLE BREAKS’ ARE WHAT KEEPS HER MOTIVATED
W orking from home has its pros and cons. One of the best things is being able to be exible and mix things up so no one day is exactly the same as the next! I always check on the weather forecast so I can plan when it will be nicest to venture outside for a walk or to do my errands. I am quite strict with myself, though, allowing tea breaks as rewards for ticking things o my list of ‘To Dos’ for the day.
So, usually around late morning and mid-afternoon, I move away from my desk, nd a comfy spot on a rug or armchair, or prop myself up on a stool at our kitchen breakfast bar, and enjoy a tea break. Sometimes I only need 10 minutes to revive me; other times it takes longer or my mind wanders elsewhere before I bring it back into the moment and enjoy feeling nourished and refreshed.”
