October 20 is World Osteoporosis Day, and living a long healthy life means taking care of your bones. Osteoporosis is what gives older adults the hunch-backed look, so stand tall no matter what age you are!
The season is off to a great start with October 10 being National Handbag Day. Yes, every day of the year has at least one interesting theme to it! We love our handbags and we also love our retailing clients. So how can we help you this quarter (and going forward?) If you’ve been reading our posts, you know that we manufacture folding table risers. It’s a portable and easy-to-use solution for preventing back injuries for employees who work standing up at folding tables, which were designed for sitting.
Are you a retailer in the business of supplying top-notch customer experiences? You’re probably making shoppers’ lives easier by providing gift-wrapping service during the holiday season.
We love our pets, and August 26th is National Dog Day! No, we don’t dress our dogs up in funny or cute costumes… they’re adorable and funny and cute all by themselves. (Though if you feel the urge and your dog won’t get you back for it later… go for it!) We may not dress them up, but we do like to have them groomed. In honor of our clients who are pet groomers, we found some interesting information about pooches and how to pretty them up.
This year, OSHA’s Safe and Sound Week promoting safety at work runs from August 9th to the 15th. It’s a great time to recognize the health and safety success of American companies. And to provide suggestions and information on how any workplace, whether it’s an office, warehouse, or even home environment, can be made safe for its employees.
Protecting your back is one of the best things you can do for your health, especially if you want to have a long and active life. According to the Health Policy Institute, back pain is the 6th most expensive medical condition in the US, and 8% of adults suffer chronic back pain that limits their activities. Ouch! You know we advocate standing instead of sitting all day, and lifting the surface of your folding table if you need or want to stand at it. However, there are daily habits that can also keep your back healthy and happy.
Modern life moves fast, and it can also be quite complex. It’s hard to know if you’re making the right decision when you don’t have all the facts. And when you don’t have the time to consider all the relevant details! Simplifying what you can is a great way to give yourself more breathing room for the more difficult decisions. One of the best ways to simplify is to create habits. And systems, especially for business owners. Whether you own your own business or not, there are a variety of ways to keep it simple.
Spinning turntables on top of folding tables is life for a lot of our DJ clients. They love to lift up the surface of their tables with our risers so they’re not straining their backs for the whole set. If you want to see a DJ and our risers in action, check out our friend Har Megiddo who was so thrilled to find our risers, he made this video for us for FREE on YouTube here!
Do you have administrative professionals (including virtual assistants) working from home?
