What is your favorite item in your workspace?
My favourite item has to be the standing desk. I’ve only recently upgraded my desk into a standing one and it was one of the best workspace decisions I’ve ever made. It boosts productivity, I’m a pacer when I think, and it’s more comfortable.
How do you spark creativity?
To spark creativity I’ve got whiteboard stickers on the wall next to the desk to scribble stuff down at any time, as well as a giant whiteboard in the hall. I love going analogue when coming up with ideas, just getting stuff on a whiteboard as quick as possible. As silly as it sounds, I also try to dedicate at least one hour a week to just ideation, to see what’s rattling round in my head.
How do you keep the work-life balance?
Work-life balance isn’t the biggest priority for me, as I absolutely love everything I do. I make sure I reserve some time in the morning and the evening to prepare for the day and then unwind, but otherwise things are flexible! Some days I’ve got plenty of time for myself, and other days can be a little busy. But I love it!
