Back to School Prep

How is it already back to school time? Wasn’t it just March? As we approach the end of Summer, the students in our lives look towards starting the next chapter of their academic endeavors!  Summer has brought with it warmer weather, excuses to stay out late, travel and partake in activities out of our normal day-to-day routines. In order to properly prep for the coming academic year, we recommend starting to get back into your daily school time groove. Whether that is shopping for school supplies, planning a first day of school outfit or getting back to your regular sleep schedules, we know you will feel better the more organized you are!

The entire Western Mutual team wishes you a happy start and great success in the new school year!

Heat Safety

This summer has broken records for how abnormally hot it has been! Whether you are male or female, young or older, have preexisting health conditions or not, heat stroke is not something to take lightly. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), extreme heat causes more deaths than hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes, earthquakes and floods combined! Perhaps now is the time to brush up on some ways to stay cool this summer!

Please make yourself aware of the list below:

  • If at all possible, remain indoors during the peak heat hours of the day (10AM-2PM) in air-conditioned rooms
  • Avoid direct sunlight by wearing sunscreen and/or layered clothing to avoid direct contact with your skin
  • Take cooler showers and drink more water than usual
  • Remain vigilant to anticipate when extreme heat waves will strike your area
  • Be watchful of symptoms of heat illnesses
  • Make sure elderly family, friends and neighbors are safe in this extreme weather

Motivational Monday

It can prove difficult to concentrate and stay on task in the middle of summer while your friends inundate your social media feeds with their exotic travels. Snap out of #FOMO (fear of missing out) mode and practice some gratitude in your daily life. It has been said that the key to success and happiness is getting up early to launch your day without distractions, meditating to combat stress, eating clean to nourish your body, reading to open your mind and practicing daily gratitude. Incorporating one or more of these into your daily routine could help to lift your spirits, increase happiness and assist you in feeling better as a whole. So, put down your cell phones, get up from your desks and start your day in a positive way! Happy Monday to you all!
