Work from Office: Changes and Challenges!


Mostly these days I’m back on campus, working in the Dean’s office.

On the bright side, I’m back to compartmentalized living, which I like. When I am at work, I’m at work, and when I am home, I am not at work. I’ve never been a big fan of working at home.

I like my work clothes. I’ve missed them. And I like seeing people. I’ve missed colleagues and students. And on the fitness front, I like the everyday exercise of walking around campus. I also like my bike commute. Today I also just rejoined the campus gym.

Here’s me, smiling in my office.

On the less bright side, I miss my home peeps–mum, Sarah, and Miles. I miss being able to de-stress after hard meetings by taking Cheddar for a walk. I miss Zoom calls with Lizzie on my shoulder. I miss my rompers and my leopard print crocs and lots of my silly but comfy #wfh clothes.

Here’s Lizzie contemplating her breakfast raspberry.

On balance though I’ve got to say I prefer working hard long days at work and then coming home and throwing on my home clothes and not working at all.

What #wfh life fitness stuff will stick around? Zwift for sure. Rowing for sure. At home yoga for sure (my yoga studio closed during the pandemic). TRX for sure. I’m glad I’ve got all these options.

This was my first day back with Cheddar looking out as I left for the office.

How about you? What’s your balance these days, of home and work, of everyday exercise and working out?
