Home free to do many new things
Dr Ruth Miller-anderson has been using lockdown to pick up new skills.
As an NHS pharmacist and success coach who goes by the name The Swan Doctor, Dr Ruth Miller-anderson, 46, is used to being busy.
She lives with her husband Alan, 49, daughter Sophia, 14, and 85-yearold mother Maureen, near Lough Neagh in Ballyronan, Northern Ireland.
Lockdown has given her more time to do new things because she’s cut out the time she’d normally spend travelling to work.
“My commute would normally be a couple of hours
per day,” she says.
“That’s given me more time to do things for my business and work. I’ve made my study really comfortable with new furniture – whereas before it was a bit of a dumping ground. “I’ve been taking part in a programme about bringing products to market. It was a lot of work and I don’t think I could have had the time to take on something like that before. “I’m a bit of a lifelong learner who is always looking for a new challenge. “I’ve been doing quite a bit with developing my own business as well, particularly the online aspect of it.”
