Apples and Pumpkins and Squash, Oh My!
Adjusting to a Pandemic
We typically mark the seasonal transition with traditions we enjoy, like Halloween trick-or-treating and cheering with the crowd at sporting events. However, since many of our favorite pastimes remain restricted due to the continuing global pandemic, here are some suggestions on what we still can do:
- Plan an outdoor activity with colleagues or friends while socially-distancing, such as apple picking, hiking or picnicking
- Take a drive to check out the changing leaves
- Snuggle up with a cozy blanket and a good book
- Carve and decorate pumpkins and roast the seeds
- Cook up a pot of delicious roasted butternut squash soup, freeze it and save it for a comforting lunch on a chilly day
- Take an old and cold project and move it up in priority
- Dust off your resume and update it – in case you decide to go for that promotion or apply for a different job
Stay safe, stay sane, stay healthy!
When I think about work-life integration and wellness, I consider whether we are satisfied and growing as we want to in our current positions.
