Apart, but never distant
Here’s how we're practising physical distancing while maintaining mental closeness:
"Mindfulness and meditation are not only great ways to recharge, they are excellent ways to spend downtime that can help with focus, energy, and fortitude. I’ve been hosting our usual weekly meditation session virtually. It’s a chance to shut off the noise and be present for 15 minutes. We chat afterwards like we would if we were together – it really helps!"
"When we are able to work in the office, I love to plan social events for the team! Even though we aren’t able to physically hangout anymore I’m arranging virtual yoga classes to replace our usual Monday night office yoga as well as games nights. It’s important to stay connected."

Operations and Human Resources
"Over the past few days of being at home, I’ve been able to share a virtual Saint Patrick's Day pint, and had a couple lunch dates with colleagues – positivity has been the most infectious thing that I’ve let into my house. We’ve also started to host a 5:00 pm social hangout with the work group. It feels great to reclaim that social time that you’d normally enjoy in passing, getting a coffee or a snack."
Director of Growth
"As a mom of two young children, I have found balance these past couple days spending time with my kids in between meetings building pillow forts with them, practising meditation, and taking long nature walks. Also, I hosted our first virtual whiteboard session meeting – a super cool feature provided by Zoom!"
Client Success Manager
"To stay positive during this time, my roommate and I have been taking time to do daily yoga and pilates workout classes. Last night, we hosted a virtual dinner party with some of our friends and it was a great way to catch up with everyone while doing our part to flatten the curve."
Despite the turbulence of the times, we'll continue working towards our goals, keeping each other accountable and keeping our spirits high. ThinkData Works goes far beyond our logo and website, and it's nothing without happy people – clients, partners, and employees alike. Stay connected, in touch, and positive.
