Currently, we all have a little more time. Home working has afforded us the time to learn new skills, including home improvements, crafting and cookery.
Many of us have acquired a pet for company. 3.2 million pets have been bought during lockdown, with demand for puppies increasing by 104%. This has reduced social isolation and encouraged families to get out more.
We are now striving to achieve a better balance between work and home life so we can enjoy our family and friends more. Working from home or a mixture of home/office working is set to become much more common place, reducing stress and making our working day shorter.
So what does all this mean ?
- We will continue to value simpler things in our lives. Our family, friends, community and the great outdoors.
- We will buy less but buy well. We’ll invest in well made products designed to last, from companies that are committed to sustainability and reducing their carbon foot print.
- We will continue to focus on our well being, creating more ‘me time’ and doing the things that add value and purpose to our lives.
- We will strive to achieve a good work/life balance, creating time to pursue our interests and learn new skills.
