Chief Sender of Hugs, Faye Savory, on The Rest Room Podcast with Natasha Lipman

The Rest Room Podcast

Our Chief Sender of Hugs, Faye, was recently on the wonderful Natasha Lipman’s Rest Room podcast.

You can listen to, as well as read a full transcript of, the full episode, which focuses on chronic illness-friendly workplaces, at the Rest Room here.

“I think the biggest thing has been learning to put expectations in place at every stage. Expectations for myself, making sure that they’re more realistic because I am really prone to saying, “Right, I’m going to do all of the things,” and that’s just… Even if you are a healthy person, that’s not possible. But also, really importantly, expectations of others. If you are communicating those things really clearly from the outset, it’s much easier to build up gradually, and there’s not as much accidental pushing further than you should. So, you can do the same process of building a business, it just might be at a slightly slower pace, or you might have to work smarter and find workarounds which other people maybe wouldn’t have had to have done.”

A Little About BearHugs

We love helping people send all the warmth and comfort of a hug from afar.

When you order a ‘hug in a box’ gift hamper, you can add extra personal touches such as your own message. Every BearHugs gift box is hand-packed with love and then popped in the post so it can be sent directly to a doorstep of your loved one. 

We’re really proud of our signature 'hug' gift boxes which reveal outstretched paws and a ‘Consider this a BearHug’ message on opening. They never fail to make us smile and we love hearing that they’ve made recipients smile too.
