What the Team has Learnt Since Lockdown

What have you learned since Lockdown?:

Jayla:

  • That I do not react well when I’m not in control.
  • How quickly the things can change for better and worse.
  • Don’t listen to all that you hear.
  • The strength of my team.

Kim:

  • How to be resilient and tolerant in times of uncertainty.

Heather:

  • Not to take things for granted and how to decorate!

Tony:

  • Normally the commercial world is full of bravado, which has definitely slipped during the crisis – People asking ‘how are things’ actually mean it now. 🥰

Charlie:

  • How resilient as individuals we can be.

Miriam:

  • That I am stronger than I thought and that the small things in life really mean so much.

 

Things you can’t live without?:

Jayla:

  • My children, my husband and my pooch.
  • The rest is a bonus.

Kim:

  • My family/friends and the support we have given each other even if it’s over Zoom/WhatsApp/catch up phone call etc that is invaluable.

Heather:

  • My phone!

Tony:

  • My barber 😮

Charlie:

  • My family.

Miriam:

  • Something to look forward to. i.e. Family holidays and meeting with friends.

 

Things you value most?:

Jayla:

  • True Friendship. True teamwork.
  • The power of a hug.

Kim:

  • It’s never the material things, it’s time spent with family and friends that has really hit home and to appreciate even the little things in life.

Heather:

  • Speaking to family/friends while not being able to see them and my dog Archie.

Tony:

  • Family and friends – Not having the usual levels of contact has been tough.

Charlie:

  • Family time.
  • Having the opportunity to contribute towards my daughter’s education, even if for a short period.

Miriam:

  • My little team Hunter. They have really been what is getting me through this. And true friendships which I think have really come to light during this time.

 

Things you have missed the most?:

Jayla:

  • Being able to plan and look ahead

Kim:

  • Taking my daughter out for the day.

Miriam:

  • Friends! Freedom! Hugs!

 

What change will you make after lockdown?:

Jayla:

  • I’ll take less for granted.

Kim:

  • As I’m wearing my own clothes to work (behind locked doors) it will be to wear my Simple Rec uniform again with pride (as always) and help people when we open up our doors fully again. 😊

Heather:

  • To make sure I do things that are planned and enjoy every day.

Tony:

  • Ensuring my family walks/rides and quality time doesn’t slip.

Charlie:

  • Appreciate the little things more.

Miriam:

  • Appreciating the smaller things in life more that I perhaps have taken for granted in the past!
