How to combat beginning of the week stress? Massages for the whole staff!
We are of course avid readers of health news. So imagine how satisfied I was when I read this NPR article asking what employers are doing about stress in the workplace. Here at MediaSource we have taken a pretty relaxing approach to the start of a busy week.
Is being the #1 health care PR firm stressful? Sure. We have high expectations - many of them created for us, by us. But in true MediaSource work hard, play hard style, we have a plan to manage stress. Today, stress management comes in the form of massages for our whole staff! 20 minutes of a relaxing table massage seems to be the best fix. One of our conference rooms has transformed into a calming spa for the day thanks to Studio 1 Massage. We can’t think of a better opportunity for a quick mental break.
Not only can I tell my co-workers feel pampered but the massages are increasing focus, energy and overall mental clarity. I’m impressed with the alertness and creativity sparking after the massages. Not to mention the sparks coming from the stress relief candles flickering around the office. We are definitely enjoying this energizing alternative to a second cup of coffee today. Thanks MediaSource for helping us keep calm and pitch on!
