Daily rituals

Bridget Community Manager Aug 31, 2020

Hi everyone! 

Hope you're off to another great week :). During COVID, I have found that keeping up a tried and true daily routine has been really helpful. I try to do things that I know will keep me happy and sane (workout, take breaks, read instead of watching tv), although I did just finish 2 seasons of Succession ... 😉

I'd say my favorite daily ritual is making breakfast. I have had oatmeal with bananas, berries, and peanut butter every day for close to the last three years, and I'm still not sick of it. 

What daily ritual is keeping you sane these days?

It's a must. Not that I'm mean in the morning (I'm not), but I might mix up the details for whatever procedure doc I'm working on... 😉

@Bridget - black! If I'm going out, I've got a few favorites, otherwise I brew my own stuff with a Chemex 👐

Since the lockdown 90% of use have been working remotely, we started a company wide (we're only ~20) morning zoom call, not only talking strictly about business.

It's nice to see also the folks you dont work with on a daily basis (since we asked everyone to loose their jammies and turn their cameras on during these daily calls)

@Jens Kisters _APTIS_ I love that ritual! With a small team, it's so important to feel connected to your coworkers. (Also a really good reason to not wear PJs 24/7)...

For the 10% of folks who go in - is that a personal choice? Or is it necessary for them to do their work in-person? 

I'm lucky enough to live in a part of the world that is under no lock-down or restrictions (Northern Australia) with the exception of not being able to travel and some social distancing guidelines. So we are blessed to be able to do team stand-ups in the flesh, remember those ?

It seems surreal to watch what's happening elsewhere around the world. Rest assured we feel very fortunate !

But on the subject of daily rituals...   how do "oatmeal with bananas, berries, and peanut butter" form to make a breakfast dish, as a fan of all of the above I'm fascinated, where does the peanut butter go ??

As I transitioned to work from home full time for the forseeable future, I noticed that my internal clock began to drift. I began working constantly and ignoring my mental and physical health. I have yet to begin waking up early to "hit the gym" as I once did, but I am taking a daily lunch hour to complete a 7 minute workout, a short yoga focus, and meditation. As I take time for myself daily I notice that I feel more focused, anchored, and adaptable. It's so important to maintain some sense of normalcy, even in the face of incredibly abnormal circumstances.

@elizabeth_jones , really good reminder to take time for yourself!! I agree - routine (especially when it comes to self care / exercise) can make all the different. Thank you for sharing!

I want to share with you what "ritual" prevents me from working at home. Unfortunately, I'm a pedant: cleanliness and order in my house is a very important guarantee of productive work for me. When I worked in the office, I naturally didn’t give it any meaning. But working remotely, I cannot be productive until my home wouldn't have perfect cleanliness. Who has the same situation?

I startet jogging every day.

3 weeks after I HAD Covid-19!

110kg 37 year old bodybuilder from Norway. I jogged 30mins on a track, and got 2,4km. I really gave it ALL I had of energy.

I coughed like a grandfather for 15mins when I got home. And mye heart was ponding out of my chest for 10min, and was flat on the couch Netflix’n  the rest of the day. Sooo tired.

But the next day, I ran 3,5 and did not cough at all, and my pulse was back to normal in 5 min’s! And energylevels back! 

So if you are not in shape, to better protect yourself from Covid-10, you should start some form of exercize! 

We do three dailys a week on remote (MS Teams)
