Wellness in a time of Extreme Change

 

The last three months have brought about a level of change that most of us will never have experienced in our lives before. CoVid has not only changed the way that we work, it has effected every facet of our lives – from the way that we shop for groceries, to how we interact with friends and family. While much of the world is now coming into various stages of opening and adjusting to a new way of live, we are by no means returning to what would have been normal for us when 2020 began.

 

Change can make the best of us anxious, and our wellbeing is something that can so easily be effected with this anxiety.

 

Because most working professionals spend a third of their time at work (a frightening statistic in itself!) the workplace is an important place to address wellbeing that is often overlooked.

The memory...

 

20th September 2019, the day I got married with the love of my life, a handsome Italian man by the name of Giacomo!  We have been together for more than 14 years and have traveled all around the world.

SafetyPois – a CoVid19 initiative

 

Many of us are entering new phases of our easing restrictions and re-opening our destinations and business’s.

 

As with anything new, it will take all of us some time to adjust.  As business owners, there are many questions which we are asking ourselves.

 

Overall, the most important question that we are looking to address being ‘how can I ensure a positive customer experience as I reopen?’

 

Created by Fabrizio Rametto, TCOMMUNICATION, in Italy- Safety Pois, a new product addressing this very concern, was born.

 

Safety Pois is a simple, effective visual signage system to manage the flow of people in a space, while respecting social distancing.

The fridge is not your enemy

By Audrey Thomas, CSP, Organized Audrey

 

After dreaming about what it would be like to work from home, avoiding a stressful commute, you have now discovered that dream is a nightmare. We recently polled more than 1,000 people who are new to working from home. They listed distractions and loss of productivity as two of their biggest challenges. Their comments included:

 

  • All I do is eat!
  • It’s taking me longer to get my work done.
  • I can’t get my spouse/kids to realize I still have a job to do.
  • I miss my team
    members...

 

First of all, recognize that the distractions you face today are not the same you faced in your office. You may now have kids, pets, and housework all vying for your attention.
