Lifetime Habits from Chairperson
Crisis brings people closer and therefore they are able to view the world very differently. The change in their outlook towards fellow humans is most certainly the positive change that has emerged in this crisis. In this situation, I appreciate the creative initiative by the Kathford HR Team to connect with the human capital at Kathford.
The Covid-19 pandemic has made it very clear that no matter whether you are out of work or bogged down with even more work; the world has taken a pause for everyone in some way, shape or form, and showed us that perhaps many of us we’re not living our lives in the way we really longed to live.
Certainly, the Covid-19 pandemic has led me to many positive changes. I am spending more time doing yoga every day. This has helped me maintain a balance between my body and mind. It has been a key technique for de-stressing during the coronavirus pandemic. This is something I want to continue for a lifetime.
I am spending more time with my family than ever before. I am finding joy helping in household chores. Spending more time with my family is a great stress buster for me. I consider making this part of my normal routine.
This pandemic has given me enough space to reflect on myself. It taught me the risks of continuously accepting more than I can handle, that would eventually lead to burnout. I am practicing setting limits during this time. I am challenging myself to keep making SMART work decisions when life returns to normalcy. For me, that means saying no when I can’t handle a new task/ project, asking for help when I need it, and being clear about my limits with others.
One of the most important things this pandemic taught me is that no one can control everything in life and that’s absolutely normal. Lastly, I would like to ask everyone to do things that keep you smiling. 😊
