During this COVID-19 situation : our team (based in Paris, Shanghai, Singapore) found themselves, like a lot of us, in quarantine. After a month of home office and living locked up at home: we share with you their feelings and how they deal with this situation !
Quarantine has caused some unpleasant surprises in our daily lives. At the top of the list is a poor diet. According to the IFOP, the weight gain on average for the majority of French people (57%) is about 2.5 kg. After the quarantine, the gyms will be fully packed!
Let’s see how our team is holding up:
What’s up guys ! Can you tell us 1 habit you took during quarantine?
Lulu (UI/UX Designer): Practicing my Arabic language. Since it is Ramadan, the month that most Muslims look forward to!
Josh (E-commerce Customer Experience): Cooking!
Camille (Lead Creative): I guess maintaining a consistent indoor workout routine for myself everyday was new to me as I was used to being part of a training group.
Ben (IT Director): Eating a proper breakfast every morning. It feels so good!!
And 1 bad habit that you took during quarantine?
Lulu: Lazing around my bed with my PJs on some days even when I am working and during weekends!
Josh: Drinking, haha kidding binge watching tv shows.
Camille: Chocolaaaaate, but they say it’s good for mental health hehe.
Ben: No more proper workout.
What does your day look like?
Lulu: My quarantine day is inconsistent. I only get up, clean my bed and shower & start working!
Josh: Not sure what day means haha.
Camille: Wake up at 7, 3 sun salutations to start the day, check my social networks, work, eat, workout and then chill until bedtime around midnight!
Ben: My daughter wakes up around 6:30, breakfast with family, let’s work/code : Lunch with family, let’s work/coding, dinner with family, let’s work/code, Let’s sleep.
What does your quarantine outfit look like?
Lulu: I am either in my PJs or in my workout outfit!
Josh: Sleeping clothes all day.
Camille: Like week-end style ahah, between office style and homewear.
Ben: Shorts and t-shirt.
How do you disconnect from work?
Lulu: I am currently learning to bake cakes.
Josh: Getting a workout at the gym.
Camille: I never really disconnect actually, there is always ideas and inspirations to catch, app reviews to give, updates from the different teams, etc.
Ben: “Disconnect”? I don’t know this word :-)
Thanks guys : Stay at home and be safe !
We don’t know what life will be like afterwards, but it seems like some habits will stay: home office? Cooking ?
