Green Gifts For Your Great Boss

National Bosses Day is an opportunity to reflect on and celebrate the hard-working bosses who make our work lives a little easier every day.

She created Bosses Day on October 16th, her father’s birthday, to give employees an opportunity to reflect on all their bosses do for them all year long.

September is self-care month, and we want to stop a moment to think about what you do, and could be doing, to take care of yourself.

Meditating outdoors, in a garden or park, is even better because the connection with nature will nourish your mind, body and soul together at one time.
