Happy Friday! It’s been one of those weeks where it feels like I haven’t had a chance to relax so I’m ready for the weekend. I’m in denial that it could snow tomorrow but otherwise I’m ready for the weekend. Before work ends for the week, I wanted to check in and share a few things that I’ve been obsessed with this week. Have a great day 🙂
While browsing my homepage on LinkedIn, I came across this article. It goes into the benefits or open paid time off for employees. Open PTO is allowing employees to take off as much time as they want for vacation and sick days. The articles describes the benefits and that it leads to people being more productive since they aren’t overworked. I think companies will very slowly start to adopt this idea. It definitely makes you think about why the United States has some of the lowest vacation time around and there’s actually no guarantee that employees get any paid time off.
Gel Bead Ice Pack
This week, my knee has been feeling weird. Since my half marathon is in 9 days(!) I want to be as preventative as possible with it. Enter my ice pack. This one specifically was in the bag from a fundraising run my parents did. This thing is awesome! It stays cold for a while and since it’s made of gel beads, I can contort it to fit my knee. Once it’s put back in the freezer it gets cold so quickly. I actually brought it to work and left it in the kitchen freezer to use throughout the work day. Since this one was a freebie, I found this 2 pack on Amazon that looks very similar.
The Easter bunny killed it this year by bringing these jelly beans to us. Since I was a little kid, I have only liked Starburst jellybeans. Normal jellybeans are just eh but I’m in love with this kind. I have had a small handful a few nights this week after dinner and I’m enjoying each and every bean.
This probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone. How could you not love your new puppy?
