Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
I’m just finish 2 weeks of training in a new job. It’s still customer service agent on the phone, but for a new product and with some new CRM systems 📠.
It has been busy and hard, but not just because it’s a job for a new product, and I need to learn a bit about the product, and a new CRM system I need to learn to use too, but also because I’m actually older and learn in a bit different way then before. Maybe even in a other tempo as well.
And I needed to have the training at the office. I didn’t feel very comfortable with that. There’s a lots of good colleagues and people at the office, something that also means there’s a lots of different energies, and a possibility to be exposed for the coronavirus. And, unfortunately, I get very tired when it’s a mix of energies around me. And I have during the last year tried to do my best to avoid places where it’s a bigger chance to be exposed by the coronavirus. I have for example not been in a shopping centre since the Autumn 2019.
Like some of you maybe know, – Spain is at the moment a very “red” country on the map in Europe when it comes to the coronavirus. So I actually don’t need to do things on purpose to get the virus when it is like it is in the country at the moment. But when that’s said,- I’m not worried, I live my life, I enjoy my life and I meet up with my friends as well as testing out restaurants in the area, goes to the beach, goes to the stores and so on. But I’m careful and I follow the different restrictions, and I’m conscious about who, how, when and where 😊.
Most of the colleagues at my job are actually working from home at the moment. I think around 70 % are working from home, so of course there wasn’t to many people in the office, but still a bit. I’m working for a big company with many employees, so even when 70 % are working from home there’s still a bit of people left in the office. And a bit more people then I’m normally surrounded by.
I didn’t feel very comfortable with taking the train every morning either to my job and then back home again from my job. It’s a bit of people on the train too, and during this corona- situation I have tried my very best to avoid to be sourrende by to many people at the same time. Except from this two last weeks, and also last summer when I also worked at the office for a while. Like I mention, I’m very conscious about who, how many people and where I’m surrounded by people.
I actually did travel with a train 20 minutes earlier then I needed to travel with in the mornings just because I found out that the earlier train had less passengers then the train 20 minutes later 🚞.
I’m not the biggest fan of this coronavirus, and I try my very best to avoid to be exposed by the virus and the illness.
But okay,- sometimes it’s necessary to do what’s needed to keep up the flow,- like have a job 😊. And I’m very happy and grateful for this opportunity to still have a job and still be an employer for the company I’m working for 😊. And I’m going to continue to work from my home again too now, something I feel more comfortable to do even it’s a new job for a new product and CRM system, and I’m a very “newbie” in all of it, my “knowledge base” on the subject it’s not very much to brag about at the moment, but it will be better little by little, and I still feel healthy, just a bit tired 😅.
And, like I mention, I do different things in my time off from my job, I don’t live isolated or anything like that, I’m just more conscious now then before about when and where, who and how. And to be more conscious it’s not a problem or a challenge for me 😊.
I have actually learned to be more conscious about different things in my life and also about my self during this last “corona- year”.
And one of the things I’m more conscious about is my learning process. I learn differently now then before, and special when it’s something I need to learn but don’t have the most interest to learn 😅. I need to learn about this new product I’m customer service agent for, and I need to learn how to use the CRM system, but that’s because I’m interested to both do a good job as well as keep my job 😊. And I actually learn more when I’m working from my home and do the “studies” on my own with the possibility to ask for help if there’s something I don’t understand on the chatt platform Teams, then sit behind a desk in a environment together with other people and be teached.
When I sit in teaching environment I, unfortunately maybe, get bored and start to draw instead 😅. Drawing illustrations, images and different decorations I can use on the glassbottles or the canvas 🎨. I’m losing my focus. Maybe it’s the age ( my age) or maybe it’s the subject, I actually don’t know.
Like I mention, I have use the train to and back home from my job during the 2 last weeks. On purpose. It’s just a 5 minutes walk to the train station from my home, and it’s 2, 1 km to walk from the train station close to the office, and of course the same back again- but back again, it’s a bit up the hill walk 😅. I could used the bus too if I wanted. The bus stops just 1 minutes from my home and it’s stops closely outside the office.
When it comes to people in the bus or train it’s more and less the same.
When I use the train I can do some different errands in the town on my way back home, and I also get some exercise 🚶♀️🤸♀️. If I use the bus this is a bit more difficult to do. Of course I could do some exercises anyway when I was back home from the training, but after 8 hours with training I knew I was not going to do any kind of exercises. Maybe just a tiny walk or two at the beach. So then I choose “steps- and walk” exceriences instead to and back from my job 🚶♀️🤸♀️.
In the beginning I need to admit it was hard, special the “long” stairs up to the train station, and the “long” “up the hill- road” from the office 😳😊. But after some days it all went easier 😊. Maybe because I was getting a bit more “trained”, or maybe because I knew it was just less days left to take the stairs, and “up the hill” walk? I don’t know, and it doesn’t matter, because I felt good about myself with doing this “exercises” 😊. And, unfortunately, to do some exercises hasn’t been on my “priority list” for awhile even I know it’s so important, it has and is still on my “to do list”. But “to do” and “a priority”, then the priority comes first.
Exercises will come on my priority list very soon when the hottest summer heat is over in a couple of weeks 🌞 🌡.
So that’s actually more and less what I have been doing for the last two weeks,- been on training for a new job, done some stairs and walk exercises, eating and sleeping 😊.I haven’t had the energy to do so much more 😅. And missed my home office, of course- but I’m back home to my home office again now, and I will probably learn more about the new product I’m a customer service agent for and the new CRM system when I’m back in the “comfort zone” in my home 😊.
I really hope you have had some very nice weeks with or without any training or exercises, but hopefully still with some new experiences and knowledge 😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡
See you soon 😊
I have had two weeks of training in two different ways for the last to weeks 😊. One kind of training for a new job, and an other kind of training every day to get to and back home from the office as well 🚶♀️🤸♀️. “Exercises” both my body and my brain a bit 😊🤸♀️. It was a bit hard, I need to admit that- but that’s the way it is if you want to keep up the flow in different areas in life 😊💛.
