The COVID-19 pandemic is having far-reaching implications on many aspects of our lives – including where we work. As offices and other organizations across the country have closed, Rebeca Huddle has found a way to make remote “work.”
How has the transition been to working at home? What have you noticed has been harder/easier?
I am saving lots of time not blowing my hair out and putting on makeup every day! Also, no commute = no traffic!
Do you have any new 'co-workers' (roommates, partners, children, pets)?
My new co-worker is our dog, Stella, who is a 6-year-old Boxer and is thrilled that we are WFH.
Tell us about your new office space – what do you like better, or is there anything you miss?
My WFH space is comfortable, but I miss being able to stand up and give a quick hello and have a quick visit with colleagues!
If you've taken on an 'teaching' role for your kids – what are some tips that have worked for you?
My kids are old enough that there is very little about their school work that I have to monitor on a daily basis—mostly, I remind them to be systematic about using their paper planners because they are an important tool for maintaining structure in this new environment.
Do you have a go-to activity to help you de-stress or relax?
I take walks in the neighborhood, sometimes alone and sometimes with my family.
What is your best tip for working remotely?
Make yourself step away from your laptop and desk from time to time. Change of scenery and fresh air are energizing.
What are you binge watching or listening to now that you have time?
Favorite movie watched during family movie night: JoJo Rabbit. Uplifting story and appropriate for my 13 and 11-year olds.
