For some people in Muscat, the lockdown period is definitely a time for working from home, but also an opportunity to stay connected with pets.
I am so happy that I can continue my work through these difficult and uncertain times – caring for and training dogs which keeps me active. As I cannot meet with clients in the conventional way I have had to find new ways of communicating with them, so I have been using new applications for video chatting and other social media to stay in contact with clients, friends and family. I have learnt to let go and live in the moment, reading, having fun, trying new recipes and having fun training dogs.
During this time I am actually very occupied – in fact, more so than I normally would be from a work perspective. I’d say I am working longer hours and am busier! But that’s a good thing in many ways. I find working from home productive and also peaceful. It means I also get to spend additional time with my cats. While they are asleep, I would normally socialise, spent more time on my photography as well as social media. And, I do try to get out for some fresh air, now and then.
