With Lockdown 3.0 upon us, The Business Exchange is
asking for your insights regarding coping strategies, new habits and how to
stay positive throughout this third (and hopefully final) national lockdown.
Sam Laite, Founder of South West agency FWD Thinking Recruitment, gives us his thoughts on eating well, sleeping well and picking up the phone.
How are you keeping positive through Lockdown 3.0?
I’m focusing on the opportunity to spend time with the
family and play a part in their online/home learning, as well as thinking ahead
to the Spring and Summer months where, fingers-crossed, we can get back to
being out and about and meeting friends and colleagues again.
How are you structuring your day? Have you changed your
Monday to Friday I’m up at 7am, then it’s breakfast and
running kit on. I get the girls set up on Teams for their lessons and then get
stuck into work at 8.30am.
I go for a run or HIIT workout in the garden mid-morning to
break up the day. We have a family lunch and then it’s back to work until 3.30pm
(when school finishes) to walk the dog and catch up. I work into the evening,
talking to those looking for new roles.
Are you doing anything new?
I’m sticking to a really healthy eating plan Monday to
Friday; six well-balanced meals a day believe it or not! It keeps up a decent
level of focus and keeps the weight off despite not getting out of the house
too much. Daily exercise is really important in the week.
Have you changed your New Year resolutions?
I didn’t have any new year’s resolutions but I am determined
to eat and sleep well!
What are you most looking forward to when restrictions
Getting all of the marketers of Bath back onto the roof
terrace of the Ivy for a massive party – long overdue!
What is your biggest goal this year?
To deliver great customer experience to all of those that
come into contact with FWD Thinking Recruitment and
being recognised as a trusted and experienced recruitment partner.
What has the past nine months taught you and how has it
shaped your future for the better?
Pick up the phone and call people! You feel so much better
for talking rather than texting or relying on email. It made me realise how
important face-to-face contact is and not to take it for granted.
