On Being Thankful
"Soup of the Day"...just got Serious!
“…being thankful has been standing out for me even more as of late: The value it brings, not just to others but really to one’s self… Find something, anything, and be thankful for it. If it is a person in your life, let them know. Maybe you had a passing thought remembering someone you have not spoken with in a while and it made you smile; Send them a note, text, or message them somehow. If they lifted your day maybe, just maybe, you letting them know that you thought of them will be the lift that they needed too.”
These wonderful sentiments are short excerpts from Barclay Hollinger’s piece on Being Thankful. Click here to read it.

Best Practice of the Day
Set yourself up properly and powerfully.
Get what you need. No more using the ironing board as a desk type of thing. No. Get a decent desk and a comfortable chair. If you need a printer, double monitor, headset etc., grab it! You’re here for the long haul. Set yourself up to WIN before you even sit down!
Thanks to Cindy Gillies, a TAC Member, for this guidance on working more effectively from home.
Webinar of the Week
TODAY at 2:00pm, join the Sport Medicine Clinic’s Joanne Ukposidolo for her 40-minute webinar on Stress and Diaphragmatic Breathing.
