Fall Back Into A Healthy Work Schedule

September is here, kids are back to school, summer vacations are complete, and companies are no longer operating on a holiday schedule. It can be difficult to accept the change when those first leaves begin to hit the ground, so here are some tips to help you transition into a happier, healthier fall season, plus some on trend products that you can offer your clients to help them stay on track for the new season.

Don’t Be Late.

If you have children, fall means back to school and school drop off mornings. Even if you don’t have children, fall means adjusting your commute to school bus schedules.

Plan Your Schedule. 

Days are getting shorter, & it is important in the last few weeks of summer to think ahead regarding your new fall schedule. Get to bed earlier, finish up your fall shopping lists, and plan your commute and car pool schedule.

Take Vitamins. 

With shorter days and the end of beach season comes less sunshine which means less Vitamin D, essential for healthy bones. Stock up on supplements, and increase your intake of Vitamin D rich foods such as tuna, mackerel, and salmon.  and get outside when you can! A lunchtime stroll is the perfect way to squeeze in some autumn sunshine, even as it starts getting dark before you leave the office.

Get Your House And Your Office In Order.

The relaxed vibe of summer usually leaves some extra clutter lying around. While you start thinking about raking leaves at home, don’t neglect your desk-the change of a season is a great time for some office reorganization.

Stay Active. 

Shorter days can make it tempting to stay inside. Fight the temptation by joining a gym, or signing up for a yoga class. Make getting up early for a run part of your new fall schedule. Buy yourself some stylish cool weather active wear to make continuing to exercise into the fall months still appealing.

Think Spring!

Spring is just around the corner, and with a new season comes a fresh new energy to bring to your marketing approach.  Every business starts out with the best of intentions and lofty resolutions at the beginning of the year.  But by March, many of those aspirations have begun to fade.

Spring has become synonymous with spring cleaning and a fresh start.  It has become the go-to season for millions to deep clean homes, get rid of unnecessary clutter, and look at things from a different perspective.

Let the new season inspire you!

This is a great time to get rid of all the products and services that haven’t been as profitable as you’d like, and to put your brand on something new.  Your messaging should match the season with vibrant colors and a theme of renewal and revitalization.  Focus on a new look for your website, a new feature, perhaps a new product offering to go along with the spirit of renewal.

There are some great holidays in the Spring that are perfect for marketing opportunities.   Create a marketing effort related to the annual celebration of Earth Day.  Go local and sponsor a road cleanup project or a tree planting event, and invite the community to join in. The week of Mothers Day: send flowers or a card to your clients who are mothers.

Solutions that Travel

I have recently been communicating via our local train.  As I was observing commuters traveling into Chicago,  I was amazed at how many different products people were carrying with them.  Some of these products were branded with company logos while others were not.    The items I spotted were caps, beanies, brief cases, back packs, shopping totes, earbuds, lunch bags, tumblers, umbrellas, dress shirts, polo shirts, jackets, coffee mugs, water bottles, hoodies, head phones, sling bags, pad folios and even dogs with branded collars and leashes!

When a company logo is on a product your employees and clients, and even your pets, become walking billboards for your company or organization!  They peak interest and strike up conversations.  While one a plane, haven’t you ever looked with one eye towards the person with the laptop that had a mouse or laptop cover that was branded and wondered where that person worked?  Just think about all the people who travel by plane and how many times discussions regarding work come up with the person next to you and then you can’t get them to be quiet!

In short, branded items are a marketing solution that can travel the globe!
