The buzzing feeling, seeking

Given the risk to coronavirus infection, some members work remotely (working from home).

It's been about a month since I started working remotely, so I asked them what they wanted most right now, and they said, "I want a buzzing feeling," which was both expected and unexpected.

To begin with, we have been preparing on three axes when starting to work remotely.

The first is to prepare the physical environment, the second is to redesign the work flow, and the third is to take care of the mental health.

At that time, we were predicting what would happen in a month's time, and that was that the physical environment would be mostly cleared, some issues would remain in the work flow, and the mentality would be depressed.

The result was an extension of my expectations, but I realized that I had to think more delicately and intricately on the mental side.

It wasn't just that I was depressed because I was worried about the future, but rather that I was beginning to lack and seek "something" to help me grow and develop comfortably in my work, in addition to vague concerns about the economic situation and the situation overseas.

Perhaps that's why remote work members are naturally starting to add innovations to their style.

In the morning, I would dress up and sit in a kimono on the computer, make tai-mei for lunch in a clay pot, and think about it while carrying a young child on my back.

But that doesn't fill the bill, so I think it's vaguely expressed as "buzzing sensation, seeking".

The buzz seems to have various connotations: you want to watch and copy the work of your seniors, eavesdrop on the discussion of a new project, share a little of your own personal story, or participate in a spontaneous cake baking event, etc.

It seems that there are hints of joy of working, food for growth, and new ideas in these ambiguous things, so I'll talk more about it.
