TOWARDS A BETTER WAY OF WORKING LIFE

The leaves are falling and Tier 3 tensions are rising. Right now, it’s easy to feel down. But for all that, life carries on. We still get up and ‘go’ to work (wherever that may be); form new communities and rediscover old ones.

To help you on your way, here’s your monthly ARC round up of useful and interesting things. 

WORK

A lot has been written about working from home in 2020. But this remains our favourite article to date - covering everything from the impact on identity to coffee culture. 

ARC loves Bruce Daisley’s podcast Eat Sleep Work Repeat and its accompanying newsletter, Make Work Better. Recent topics include ‘What’s the value of an office?’ and ‘Burnout - the second epidemic.’ 

COMMUNITY

Take an autumnal stroll along the Southbank to check out an outdoor exhibition celebrating key workers by a diverse range of artists. 

Or bed down with Desmonds, the 1980s classic about a barbershop in Peckham, now available on Netflix.

CITY

The underground holds dangers other than superspreaders. Namely, GHOSTS. Check out this 2001 documentary for a Halloween treat.

Is the city over? The producers of Freakonomics Radio say ‘no’ in this fascinating data-driven study of New York City. 

HOW TO // STAY FOCUSED 

Get a plant. Good for the lungs. Good for the soul.
And then get Plantsit to look after it so you don’t have to. 

HOW TO // STRUCTURE YOUR DAY 

Switch your list game up with Todoist

HOW TO // GET AWAY FROM WORK

Let Harry Styles read you to sleep with Calm. 
Or take a hike with Vespucci Adventures (discount available to ARC Club Homerton members). 

HOW TO // SUPPORT YOUR NEIGHBOURS

Hackney Giving makes it easy to support a wide range of small charities and groups working on the ground in Hackney - be that through individual donations, payroll giving or volunteering.
