Working from home: What we’ve learnt and are looking forward to

One year on since we all said goodbye to in-person working and soon realised sitting on the sofa to work is not practical! We’ve had our ups and downs. We’ve learned to love and hate video calls (because sweats and slippers are the new workwear, right?). But, even with this pretty big bump to our routines, we’ve proudly continued our mission to share CBD with the world whilst being apart, and we’re so grateful for everyone who’s joined our journey. Keep reading to learn more about the INTUNE Team’s experience whilst working from home, including what we’ve learnt and what we’re looking forward to… 

Nakita: 

What you’ve enjoyed about working from home:

  • I’ve enjoyed a slightly slower pace of life, being able to take the time to cook meals from scratch, experiment with mixing up cocktails at home (without the London price tag cocktails usually come with) and finding the time to do yoga and go running.

What you’re looking forward to now lockdown is easing:

  • Oddly, I’m excited to get back on the tube! Hopefully on the way to a gig, theatre show or to see some stand-up. Oh and for balmy evenings when it just takes one person to say the words, “shall we go for a drink after work?” as the seed for an impromptu night out.

Something that’s made lockdown easier 

  • Podcasts! During a three month stint living on my own, podcast hosts became my only company and kept me sane. We’d love to do an INTUNE podcast soon, keep your ears peeled.

Emma:

What you’ve enjoyed about working from home:

  • Not rushing, not having to care so much what’s on my lower half, my cat sitting on my lap while I work… quiet space, my own music and no complaining!

What you’re looking forward to now lockdown is easing:

  • Oh man, being surrounded by loads of people, chatter and dancing wildly and hugs, I miss hugs!

Something that made lockdown easier:

  • Yoga, and lots of walks, oh and my new kitten we got from Battersea.

Tilly:

What you’ve enjoyed about working from home:

  • Having extra time in the mornings to go for a walk and drink a pint of coffee, having access to the contents of my fridge all hours of the day.

What you’re looking forward to now lockdown is easing:

  • Being within walking distance of Doms Subs, the commute and the after-work drinks!

Something that made lockdown easier:

  • Peanut butter and my friends.

We’re so looking forward to being able to enjoy a drink out in a beer garden and dining alfresco! After-work drinks are back again, so we hope you’ll be able to pick up one of our recyclable cans and enjoy a drink in the park with your friends. You can place an order for your next picnic here, and if you’re in London we’re currently offering zero emissions next-day delivery in our CBD float, Cosmo.

 

Enjoy this new season as we emerge from our lockdown-living, stay safe, support local, and have fun!
