By now no doubt you are all aware of all the health and safety recommendations that have been issued to keep us all safe (if you’re not sure, head to the World Health Organization’s website for the latest guidance) and most of you are working from home. We thought we’d share some advice and ideas that might help to make working from home a brighter experience for you and those around you. So here are some recommendations from the Staverton team, we hope they help make things a little better during this difficult time.
Working from Home with Kids
Since the schools closed, many of us find ourselves with children at home to care for and educate, alongside a full-time job. There’s some good advice on The Guardian and if you’re looking for educational sites your children can use, both https://www.sirlinkalot.org/ and https://www.twinkl.co.uk/ are both offering their resources for free for now. The Body Coach Joe Wicks is doing an online PE lesson for kids on his YouTube channel at 9am every weekday morning to keep kids active.
Being at home doesn’t have to mean being completely cut off from the world. Since people started working from home or self isolating, families, friends and colleagues have been using apps like Zoom, Messenger and House Party for video calls and group calls. And, from pub quizzes to Pilates lessons, there are so many clubs, classes and social activities happening on social media now. We’re excited about The Social Distancing Festival, a site that showcases artistic talents from around the world, live streaming events including music, poetry readings and dance shows.
Financial Help and Resources
It’s a concerning time for many people financially. There’s lots of advice and resources on Martin Lewis’s Money Saving Expert website and it’s updated regularly with the latest guidance and information on your rights and the financial help available.
Everyone at team Staverton would like to send a big thank you to all of our clients and friends for being there. We’ve got this far because of you; we value you and we will get through this together.
Please put the health, wellness and the safety of yourself and others first at this time.
