My typical day in life…..
6.30 AM - Wake up
I generally wake up early in the mornings and do some type of exercise such as walking with friends, going to a spin class or doing Pilates. Once I get home, I walk 5 minutes down the road to my local café and get a coffee.
8.30 AM - Getting started
I log onto my computer around 8.30 AM each morning and get prepared for the day by replying to my emails, having a look at my calendar and preparing for any meetings I may have.
9 AM - Team meeting
Each morning, while working from home my team have continued to have 30-minute catchup where we talk about what we have on for the day but more importantly check in with each other and have a general chat.
9.30 AM - Divisional meeting
Our team meeting is followed by a wider team meeting for 30 minutes (3 times a week) where we have a general chat and sometimes do an activity as a group such as celebrity heads.
10 AM onwards
For the rest of the day I refer to my task list and start knocking tasks off from there. I also prepare and attend the meetings I have for the day and answer any queries that may come my way. Each fortnight I have a one on one with my manager, which is quality time to gain some feedback and have a general check in.
12.30 PM - Lunch
I try to get out and go for a walk at lunch time while I have been working from home. It is nice to get some fresh air, especially when being inside on a computer all day! When I sit back down at my desk, I make myself some lunch – my go to has been cheese and ham toasties.
5 PM - End to a busy day
I generally finish work around 5.30 PM. I completely switch off from work, shut down my laptop and put it away for the night. I then sit down, relax and catch up on some Netflix, followed by dinner and a reasonably early bedtime.
