Quaran-Tip #3: Talk a Walk!

By | News, quaran-tip | No Comments

Today’s Quaran-tip is from Emily Moline Meyer: “On my work from home days, I make a point to get out and walk in my neighborhood part-way through the day. If I have a lunch meeting, I take a late break and walk to nearby Corbin Park and back. Having time away from my screen actually boosts my productivity for the afternoon, and gives me an opportunity to work problems out in my head. Without the commute and reasons to get up and chat with a coworker, it is easy to stay put for hours at a time in my home office. Gotta enjoy the great weather while we have it!”

Quaran-Tip #2: Get a Quarantine Buddy

Get a quarantine buddy for daily check-ins. I exchanged a Microsoft Teams chat with one of my co-workers every morning during the initial stay-at-home order. It was a quick communication about how we were each feeling and what playlist we were listening to that day. Not only did we connect, but we also learned we had vastly different musical tastes!”

Quaran-Tips! Let’s Get Through This Together

This month, we will be sharing a collection of Quaran-tips – tips from our staff that have helped them through the stay-at-home order and working from home. We will be sharing workflow tips, new technologies, homeschooling wins, and more. Our lifestyles will not be returning to normal for a while, and we are in this together. Our first tip is from Gregg Soares (and his daughter Hannah), “We lost power and Wi-Fi for 2 hours, so we went bumblebee hunting and identifying in the field near us. We may need to schedule more outages this summer to get everyone away from their screens!”
