Not too dissimilar to the playgrounds of elementary schools, the workplace can be just as confusing and sweaty… Okay maybe not sweaty, but the wise words of our parents seem to flood back as we enter the workplace like when we were dropped off for school to follow the golden rule, “treat others the way you want to be treated”. But in the adult world of today and for the purpose of this article, we are going a step beyond just being nice to each other. We’re talking about being inclusive and becoming cognitive of people of all minority groups, religious backgrounds, sexuality, and gender identity.
Parents of today’s younger workforce group faced a different world than today. In the past five years alone we’ve seen our world change and evolve with various advancements. Studies on mental health and how it affects our physical health, technology (looking at you Apple), nutritional information, but one of the largest changes you can find worldwide is how work environments have evolved and changed as well as everything else we associate with a good work life.
Let me ask you a question, are you taking the vacation because you’re already tired or are you taking the vacation before you’re tired? Do you often still feel tired post-vacation? If you answered that you were tired in both questions, reason stands to blame burnout. But why is that such a big deal, that’s the purpose of a vacation, to recharge batteries once they're drained, right?
COVID-19 has aged people years, with stay at home orders in abundance, many people across the United States have started to contemplate their work life. One being that even at home they could get as much work done in a four-day work setting in 32-hours as much as they had previously in the traditional role of five-day work week in a 40-hour work week. But does the science back up the question that employees are asking employers?
Being a mother in and of itself is a huge career that is life long, but we wanted to highlight the moms who not only take their role as a mother seriously but also as a provider building her own career outside of the home. We reached out to women around us who are also girl-bosses and asked them what their thoughts were on being a mother while building up their businesses.
We had to ask what other people had been told that has stuck with them over the years, so we took to Instagram and asked our followers to tell us one thing your mom (or other female figure) taught you in 1-2 sentences. The answers were overwhelming! With some sweet and thoughtful, and others funny and quirky, we had to share the answers with all of you!

Throughout history, we have seen many ways in which various cultures express grief. Some through a set number of days in which family members and/or friends wear black, having funeral processions with wailing and villages involved in walking the casket from the point of celebration to where a community member is laid to rest. But as the years passed on some societal norms became irrelevant and outdated, where nowadays it seems that people have a kerfuffle when trying to help console someone who has experienced loss or how to address grief. For yourself or for others. We as a society have forgotten how to mourn, how to help others express their grief, and how to show support towards a family or community who have experienced loss.
