Since 2020 started, it is hard to believe that our lives have changed so dramatically in just four short months. More people are now home all day and some have even taken on new roles in their families lives. It is important that through all of this transition, we must take time to take care of ourselves along with those that we love. Here are a few tips to help you work toward overall wellness while practicing social distancing.
While looking after your wellness, other things you might try to add joy in your life could be trying a new recipe, a new hobby, learn a new language, or learn about a new topic. Use this time to create new memories, as we are getting the family time many of us want and need.
“Little girls with dreams become women with a vision.”
Women. When you think of a woman, you probably have other words that immediately come to mind. Mother, wife, sister, or friend. Throughout the ages, societies and cultures have viewed women quite differently. There were matriarchal societies in the past, like the Nubian Warrior Queens who helped to fight for their empire, to the modern-day society of Mosuo, where women carry on their family names and elect one woman as head of the family to govern their villages in the southwestern region of China. Unfortunately, there are still some societies and countries where women are not viewed with equal values. Women around the world are still fighting for basic rights that other people take for granted such as free speech, the right to vote, and the right to own property. Despite the trials and persecution throughout history, women have risen up all over the world and demanded equal rights and fair treatment. If you don’t already, there’s another word you should probably start associating with women.
Did you know that women* own an estimated 10.4 million businesses and those businesses, in turn, employ around 13 million people? In addition, women-owned businesses use technology more, as a way to create a more flexible workplace. This allows for flexible schedules and worksites for their employees.
Are you looking to start your own business?
According to census data, women are dominating startups here in St. Louis more than any other metro area in the country. Women lead 45% of St. Louis based startups. That’s almost 3,000 companies, which generate a revenue of an estimated $150-500 million, employing almost 7,000 people. According to the data, Austin, Texas, who is in the second spot doesn’t even come close to St. Louis’s numbers. In Austin, women lead 33% of startups. Still an impressive number, but St. Louis women are definitely leading the charge into the future!
*with a least 50% or more ownership
As you are probably aware, the word work isn’t always associated with the words care-free or relaxing. Whether you’re sitting in front of a computer or strategizing with coworkers, your brain is probably running a mile a minute. Wondering if you sent that email. Making mental notes to check your voicemail. Hoping you remembered to turn off your coffee pot at home. It’s just something we’ve become accustomed to in our ever-growing, fast-paced world. However, even the most hardworking person needs to take breaks every now and then. Get out of the office and move around a little!
This is when you should take advantage of our breakroom!
Did you know that even a 15-minute break has amazing benefits? It’ll help your brain slow down, relax and recharge, which in turn can help increase productivity. Taking this time in the breakroom can also give you a chance to socialize with someone new!

We all know that stress can alter our health and well-being. Did you know that stress causes immune systems to be less tolerant against antigens? It also increases your heart rate and causes high blood pressure over time. What can be done to manage stress better? Some of the things you can do are practice mindful breathing, exercise more often, dedicate a bit more time to yourself, make sure your diet is balanced, etc! Make it a point this year to manage stress better!
Superfoods are low in sodium, fat, and processed sugars. It’s important for our bodies to receive proper nutrition and to do that we have to consume a variety of superfoods that are nutrient-dense with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, Omegas, etc! There is so much information on the internet regarding superfoods but here are a few: Green Tea – High in Antioxidants. Research shows that it lowers blood pressure and cholesterol. Quinoa – High in Protein and nutrient dense. Broccoli – Packed with Vitamins A, C, Folic Acid, and the cancer-fighting agent, Sulforaphane!
Washing your hands often, especially before eating or touching your face, will increase your immunity against the flu, colds, and other viruses! Don’t forget to wash handles, doorknobs, your smartphone, office phone, and other common areas that get touched often!

It's almost time for Thanksgiving! Every family has their own traditions. We found some of the weirdest traditions out there. Have you heard of these traditions?
Breaking Wishbone- You take the clavicle bone of the turkey, which is also called a wishbone, and two people grab either side of it and pull it apart. Whoever gets the bigger half is the winner and they make a wish.
Turkey Pardoning- Every year since 1989, when President George Bush formalized it, the President will pardon a turkey from thanksgiving.
Turducken-Some families decide to do a turducken for thanksgiving instead of a turkey. A turducken is a chicken stuffed inside a duck and that duck stuffed inside a turkey.
Turkey Trot- People will dress up as turkeys and run marathons for charities on thanksgiving.
Turkey Bowling- This tradition started at a grocery store. Instead of using a bowling ball, they use a frozen turkey to knock down pins.
Turkey Toss-The turkey toss began by high schoolers who dress up dead turkeys in baby onesies set them on fire and then toss them across a football field to see who can toss them the furthest.
Automation not only helps you reach more prospects but also makes you more productive and saves money in the end.
