What is your favorite item in your workspace?
No doubt my plants 🌱🤩
They add so much life and joy to my space. Love to chat with them before any big design decisions too. Helps me weed out the bad ideas...
How do you spark creativity?
Being not in front of a screen or thinking about work! There’s so much creativity in nature and in the analog. Just doing manual tasks, getting present, going for a walk, or taking in other art like music or movies always inspires me.
How do you manage work-life balance?
I’ve had a long journey with overworking, but I’m finally getting to a place where I’m able to separate myself from my work, physically and mentally. I keep a list of my big goals that day and then try to do focused sprints with hard stops. Also lately I’ve been scheduling rest into my calendar like I schedule my time for work or life events. It’s helped so much to see my day blocked out and to visually see when there's an imbalance. The app Amie has been a huge help with this. Would highly recommend it to anyone!
What do you think is the main benefit of remote work?
Flexibility. I've worked remotely my entire career, so it’s taken me a long time to find a true work-life balance, having never had a separation between work and home. But it’s really empowering to get to be intentional about finding that balance and being remote helps with that. Flexibility around when, where, and how I work has been a game-changer for my productivity and mental health. Also, sweatpants. Every day!
