6 podcasts to start your summer: 2020

June 18, 2020

If you’re not listening to podcasts, it might not be a bad idea to sit down and take a listen. Last summer, we put together a list of six podcasts that might strike your fancy. This year, we asked our Instagram followers to share the podcasts they can’t stop hitting play on, and we picked our favorite six to share with you! The full list of recommendations is at the bottom of this post.

The class of 2020 is stopping to smell the roses

The class of 2020 is stopping to smell the roses

June 11, 2020

2020 was set to be a defining year for many of my closest friends and for many college and high school seniors. The moment we’d been waiting, practicing, learning, growing, saving, and worrying for had finally come. We were poised to don our caps and gowns and take the symbolic step out of our academic cocoon and into the warm and bright future of tomorrow.

Finding courage and following your heart

Finding courage and following your heart

May 28, 2020

Ask yourself this: “If I had more courage, what would I stop doing right now? What would I start doing?” Courage is one of the cornerstone habits of great leaders.

Your health is your greatest retirement asset, so invest now!

Your health is your greatest retirement asset, so invest now!

May 21, 2020

Think of it this way: We know that someone who begins saving at age 20 will have more money in retirement than someone who begins saving the same amount at age 30. So, it makes sense that someone who began prioritizing their health at age 20 will be healthier later in life than someone who began at age 30.

Locked and loaded: joy triggers

Locked and loaded: joy triggers

May 18, 2020

So, what makes you happy? What are the simple, perhaps irrational, things that bring you joy? I found out the other day that these things are called “joy triggers.” And I loved that.

How to write a gratitude letter that'll blow someone away

Writing a gratitude letter may seem like an overblown thank you note, but that’s simply not true. Imagine how you would feel if you received an honest, truthful letter that thanked you for how you impacted someone’s life?

Rebuilding after the 2008

Rebuilding after the 2008 "Great Recession"

April 23, 2020

For Cassandra Essick, Employee Engagement Associate at Siegfried, the chaotic events of the past few weeks have reminded her of her struggle through 2008 and her journey back to enjoyable normalcy. The similarities between these two seismic events are striking, but Cassandra promises it will get better: “Even though it’s bad right now, and it might get worse before it gets better, my experiences in 2008 and others’ experiences throughout history show it will get better.”

Crafting peace of mind

Crafting peace of mind

April 16, 2020

Creativity has never been in short supply in my family, with many making a living in art and design one way or another. For decades, my grandmother has knitted and sewn her way through holiday gifts, with my mom recently following in her footsteps. Receiving and enjoying these gifts – from scarves to socks to bathroom bags to full-size quilts – has always filled me with an appreciation for the craft and what it takes to make something by hand, start to finish.

So, when I heard one of my coworkers was a certified knitting instructor, I was more than a little intrigued.

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of change and anxiety! COVID-19 has undoubtedly shaken all of us and impacted our lives significantly for the foreseeable future. It isn’t surprising that some people are jumping into action and making the most of it, some are in a holding pattern unsure of what to do with themselves, and unfortunately, some are slowly spiraling down a negative path.
