STAYING SAFE ON 4TH OF JULY
At Spud Software it’s no secret that we LOVE animals of all shapes and sizes. While many of our employees enjoy the company of their pets at home it’s also widely encouraged for them to participate in supporting animal conservationist and rescue facilities, such as Lucky Day Animal Rescue, whenever they can.
That’s why, with the upcoming holiday festivities ensuing, it is important for us to make sure that everyone is taking the proper precautions to keep their furry friends safe. Fireworks, cookouts, and travel are great fun for humans, but many animals find our revelries to be frightening and in some situations, it may even become a dangerous experience in more ways than one. Holiday foods can be unhealthy; summer heat and travel can be dangerous; and potentially hazardous debris can end up lying on the ground where pets can eat or play with. Most commonly, however, noisy fireworks and other celebrations can startle animals and cause them to run away. In fact, July 4th sees more missing pets than any other major US holiday. Whether you’re planning your own Independence Day celebration or if you’re traveling to one, it’s important to take these precautions to keep your pets safe during and after your 4th of July festivities.
SCHEDULING VACATION TIME AROUND WORK
Taking time off from work can be difficult, especially if you have a hyper focused mindset. But the important thing to consider is that it is imperative to incorporate a healthy work/life balance if you want to promote a positive work environment with more productivity and less burnout. It’s difficult to give everyone 100 percent effort when you’re constantly running on all cylinders. There’s only one trick to a stress-free vacation, and that is to plan early.
