Filling the GAP in HR Services: Night Owl
I’m a night owl. Always have been.
Getting up at the crack of dawn has never been my thing, and consistently I’ve done my best work and had my best ideas once the sun has dipped below the horizon.
But, being a mother of two, I’ve had to adjust over the last two decades, because they really messed all that up.
With children, you’ve no choice but to be a morning person, even when your body is crying out for “just another five minutes”.
As the saying goes though, a leopard can’t change its spots, and over the years I’ve found myself craving the holidays, if only because those days don’t come with a pre-7am wake-up call.
In the early days of the current crisis, I was still getting up in the dark, because there was so much to do – furloughing was brand new, and my attention was needed in multiple places in a short space of time.
But as the pressure started dying down, so did my resolve.
I started hitting the snooze button more, because – well – why not?
