New nest

office view.jpgI’ve just moved into a new office at work. Still sharing — and in a slightly cosier-sized room than previously, but the environment overall is much more babycrow-friendly, so this is very OK. For a start I’ve swapped a slightly uninspiring rooftop view for a beautiful tree view. And if you look closely you’ll see there’s even a crow’s nest in the tree! Plus I get more sunlight on this side of the building and that is definitely A Good Thing for my personal happiness levels and therefore my professional productivity!

And now that I’m no longer in a glass-sided goldfish bowl of an office but have solid, not see-through walls, the never-sleeping yogini part of my brain starting wondering if it might be worth keeping a yoga mat at work. You know, for those days (when the boss isn’t in, obvs!) when you really want a good stretch out. It might be the one thing that can really tempt me away from my desk for a midday break instead of working solidly through the day as I usually do…

They’re already confused enough by my tendency to stand up during meetings as a break from so much sitting down. Somehow no-one takes up my invitation to stand up with me — maybe I should add ‘healthy lumbar spine’ to the top of each meeting agenda and do everyone a favour!
