Who else feels that December has come around rather quickly?
In the design community at this time of year we’d be typically (and quite frantically) finishing off projects before the holidays and somehow balancing our lists of things to do with the many, many parties that come with the season.
To say this year looks very different is an absolute understatement.
We’re also very aware that not everyone feels the joy of the season and that it can feel incredibly lonely for some.
Whatever your December is looking like, we hope you manage moments of joy. Are able to enjoy moments of pause and a holiday! (Whatever that may look like this year…)
For those that do feel they could use a bit more support you can always check out the list of resources we’ve put together here: Designers Mind Resources.
This may also be a good opportunity to look back on the year and think about some changes to your lifestyle you were able to make being at home. Perhaps there’s a few you may want to keep going forward into whatever 2021 has in store for us.
(And whatever that is, there does seem to be a bit of light so let’s hold on to that!)
So here’s to the last month of the year.
Reflecting on 2020, hoping in 2021, moments of joy and continuing to support each other through whatever comes our way!
Fancy a bit more reading?
We’ve got a new blog post out.
How is it that we tend to prioritise work over other areas of our lives? Quite often way above our wellbeing. Who hasn’t grabbed something unhealthy to eat to save time and meet a deadline? Or answered emails late into the night forgoing good quality sleep? Unfortunately, these habits tend to become the norm, sacrificing our overall health in the process.
Often time is cited as a top reason why many people don’t prioritise their health. But if by putting our wellbeing first we could be more productive, have improved focus and motivation wouldn’t this actually save us time at work?
This post dives into this very topic and considers how sleep, rest, nutrition, staying hydrated, movement and managing stress can all help with our performance at work.
