4 Foods to Avoid Before Bedtime

April 27, 2016 4:03 pm

If you’re the type of person who loves a good midnight snack, you may be wreaking havoc on your quality of sleep without even realizing it. While some foods are okay to eat right before bed, others will make it much more difficult to drift off into a dream state. Here are a few foods to avoid before hitting the hay!

  1. Potato chips. Foods that are filled with grease and fat, such as potato chips or French fries, take quite a bit more effort to digest. With your stomach working overtime, it is much more difficult to fall asleep.
  2. Ice cream. Think twice before having that bowl of ice cream while watching late night TV. Fatty foods like this are also more difficult to digest, which could lead to you lying awake with cramps and discomfort.
  3. Candy. Sugar-packed candies will cause your blood sugar levels to spike, leaving you feeling too restless for rest.
  4. Red meat. If you grab a fast food burger on your drive home after a late night, you may not be able to fall asleep once you actually crawl into bed. Red meats like this sit in your stomach much longer than other types of foods, and your body uses a lot more effort to digest them.

Administrative Professionals’ Day is Tomorrow, April 27th!

April 26, 2016 7:44 pm

Administrative Professionals Day also known as Secretaries Day or Admin Day is Wednesday, April 27. The day recognizes the work of secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists, and other administrative support professionals. Which, for the record, entails much more than taking dictation and answering phones.

Typically bosses gift assistants with cards, flowers, or lunches for the occasion. Or, if they're an especially appreciative boss, all of the above.

To help guide your gifting and minimize your time spent shopping (there isn't much time left, after all), we found 5 perfect presents to give your right hand at the office.

A bouquet of flowers or a potted succulent
Flowers make great gifts. If you're looking to switch up the tried-and-true bouquet this year, try a succulent for something that's a little different, but still fresh and earthy.

A decadent box of chocolates
Chocolate truffles from Godiva. There's not much not to like here!

A 'Thank You' card
Hallmark and Papyrus, though great options, aren't the only stationery stores out there.

A fancy candle
Candles are classic holiday gifts, and you can really never get or give too many of them since their wax eventually burns out. Opt for one with a crowd-pleasing scent —Diptyque candles are widely revered as some of the best you can buy, so there's much less risk of someone hating it.

Something they can use at the office
We all know those people who cannot really start their day until they've had their morning brew; maybe your assistant is one of them. Give them a travel mug!
