Rainy Days Bring Productivity!

Posted on October 1, 2014 at 10:39 AM Comments comments (136)
Who knew that rainy days could increase productivity?  Should be a productive day today!
Rainy days bring productivity to the office By Kelly Dickerson, published on July 01, 2014 - last reviewed on September 01, 2014

Sunny days ought to mean cheerier employees and more productive work days, right? Not necessarily: Research published in the Journal of Applied Psychology found that people completed data-entry tasks more quickly on bad weather days. The reason may be that on gloomy days, workers are simply less distracted by the desire to be outdoors. Harvard decision researcher Jooa Julia Lee's findings suggest that more-flexible working hours—allowing employees to save some of their work for when the weather outside is less enticing—could help improve productivity

Depression and Suicide

Posted on September 23, 2014 at 4:10 PM Comments comments (19)
Occasionally I will post articles or references to information that I find interesting and related to mental health.  Right now, Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of our minds due to the untimely death of Robin Williams. Please take a moment to read this article on how to recognize the symptoms.  Or if you are struggling with depression, please call for help immediately!  SUICIDE IS PREVENTABLE!

Warning Signs of Suicide
These signs may mean someone is at risk for suicide. Risk is greater if a behavior is new or has increased and if it seems related to a painful event, loss or change.
  • Talking about wanting to die or to kill oneself.
  • Looking for a way to kill oneself, such as searching online or buying a gun.
  • Talking about feeling hopeless or having no reason to live.
  • Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain.
  • Talking about being a burden to others.
  • Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs.
  • Acting anxious or agitated; behaving recklessly.
  • Sleeping too little or too much.
  • Withdrawn or feeling isolated.
  • Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge.
  • Displaying extreme mood swings.
Additional Warning Signs of Suicide
  • Preoccupation with death.
  • Suddenly happier, calmer.
  • Loss of interest in things one cares about.
  • Visiting or calling people to say goodbye.
  • Making arrangements; setting one's affairs in order.
  • Giving things away, such as prized possessions.

A suicidal person urgently needs to see a doctor or mental health professional.
In an emergency, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

If you feel you are in a crisis, whether or not you are thinking about killing yourself, please call the Lifeline. People have called us for help with substance abuse, economic worries, relationship and family problems, sexual orientation, illness, getting over abuse, depression, mental and physical illness, and even loneliness. 

No matter what problems you are dealing with, we want to help you find a reason to keep living. By calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255) you’ll be connected to a skilled, trained counselor at a crisis center in your area, anytime 24/7.

When you dial 1-800-273-TALK (8255), you are calling the crisis center in the Lifeline network closest to your location. After you call, you will hear a message saying you have reached the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. You will hear hold music while your call is being routed. You will be helped by a skilled, trained crisis worker who will listen to your problems and will tell you about mental health services in your area. Your call is confidential and free.
