Work-life balance

A tidy, dedicated work space is a must for me! It helps me feel zen and once the work day is up, I make a conscious effort to have ‘downtime’ in the living room.

- Rosie, Community Coordinator

Being comfy
Having a comfy outfit to WFH in is everything. I love something that feels soft and cozy, makes me feel stylish but requires minimal effort and is made from fabrics that are good for the planet and feel great against my skin. My go-to is our Pajamas.

Coffee + workouts
Lots of coffee, an electric milk frother machine and live stream workouts (as opposed to on-demand) as you’re more likely to do it when you can’t do it at any time.

- Sarah, Creative Producer

Music, walks + comfort
My Jazz, Electronic and Bossa Nova work music playlists help me stay motivated and a quick 15-minute walk, yoga or Headspace meditation on my lunch break clears my mind and helps me stay zen. Being comfy is also key—I love our soft, fuzzy Heavyweight Tracksuits.

Dancing
A quick 2-minute dance when you're feeling a little stressed helps your circulation and is a great mood booster.

- Dominique, Social Media Manager

Walking meetings + the 20-20-20 rule
At least one walking meeting a day or a quick walk during my lunch break. I also use the 20-20-20 rule for your eyes: every 20 mins look at something at least 20 yards away for 20 seconds—helps rest your eyes when you’re working on a screen all day long!

Music + workouts

Music helps me set the mood for the work I’m going to get done. I also make sure to carve out at least 45 mins a day during my lunch to workout so I can have a brain break and completely log off mentally and physically from work and focus on the task at hand.
