Our amazing Client Relationship Specialist, Jennifer tells us all about the new hobbies she has picked up and how prioritising your health is super important during lockdown.

  1. What have you done differently compared to the first lockdown?
    I’ve been more intentional with my time and have been prioritising my health more. Going on walks, learning new healthy recipes, being more mindful, learning the piano etc.
  2. Did you keep up the hobbies you picked up in lockdown 1? E.g. walking every day, instruments etc.
    Most definitely as it helps to give structure. I’m still in playing the keyboard although I did pause for a bit. I’m still cooking although I could start baking healthy treats during lockdown 3.0. I’m an avid user of the DuoLingo language app – I am still practicing my French and (basic) Japanese skills daily.
  3. How has lockdown changed the way you look at your life?
    It’s taught me the importance of valuing relationships It’s taught me to celebrate the small wins – we should give ourselves a pat in the back more often! Not taking personal freedoms for granted i.e. travelling To literally slow down… and appreciate the most important things in life and to take care of your health
  4. If you weren’t in lockdown right now, where would you like to be?
    Definitely on holiday…most likely in Portugal to see my family there and to enjoy the beach
  5. If you were to arrange an online dinner party who would you add to your guest list? (This could include people you know or people you don’t know).
    Good question…I’d probably invite my immediate family or uni friends and I would invite some famous singer to sing to us.. maybe a judge from ‘The Voice UK’ as I’m really into Series 5 at the moment
  6. What is your favourite self-care routine you do when you need a pick me up in lockdown?
    I’ve recently bought a foot spa during lockdown and it’s a life changer!
  7. What is your most memorable work moment during lockdown?
    The wellbeing committee moments for sure! Exchanging of Secret Santa gifts, coffee catch-ups, PH Bake-offs etc.
  8. Who or what has an inspired you over the past 11 months?
    Honestly, just everyday people, my friends who work in the NHS who are on the front-line fighting COVID every day and my parents wo are home-schooling my brother.
  9. What is your top TV watch recommendation?
    I’m getting into ‘The Voice UK’ again – this year’s contestants are sooo good!
  10. If you could be an animal, which animal would it be and why?
    A true Eagle – so that I can fly away to a foreign land
