Revitalize the Workforce

Change your mood with travel and entertainment and revitalize your workforce with TicketsatWork.com.

So I’ve been thinking about good weather a lot lately (mainly, as you can guess because we never get any). There isn’t a minute this week that I haven’t wished that we were heading into the month of June instead of the March freeze that we have before us.

Still, I’m not complaining (too much.) I’m just considering how weather affects our moods, or at least the way in which the weather affects mine. This morning’s ice storm left me tired and lifeless. Shuffling through slush creates a somberness that no amount of protein power smoothies can balance out.  And all the vitamins I gather up don’t seem to energize me one iota when there isn’t an occasional glimpse of sunshine on the horizon. Is it just me? Or does it seem as if we all could use something invigorating….at work, in school, in life?

As far as me getting my energy back anytime soon, all bets are off….but at least there is some hope for revitalization for you. Once you register your employees, as well as yourself, for TicketsatWork, you and your company will have access to countless ideas for energizing, revitalizing, and getting your groove back. So if it’s a Broadway show that tickles your fancy, or just taking in a movie, your energy level deserves a lift. Let’s all shift our moods in the right direction….

The Great Escape

With the chilly forecast this morning, it’s time to think about the best way to escape the frigid temperatures. This season, I am more than ready to plan the perfect trip for my entire family to sunny Orlando, Florida. I know from personal experiences this is the time of year when we need it most.

Last year, I waited until summer for our first-ever family vacation to Orlando, but I realize now that sooner would have been better. We always save when we use TicketsatWork.com; but if you plan a spring trip, there are even better deals to be had, and spring in Orlando is cool and fresh with just the right amount of heat. Mind you, last summer, we all had a blast. The best part of the trip for my family was Universal Studios, which seems to have a wide range of rides and adventures that appeal to everyone’s tastes. But we also enjoyed Walt Disney World; I made sure we all had Park Hopper passes and FastPass+ reservations for all of our preferred rides. It takes some planning, but it’s worth it.

Spring is on the horizon…. Let’s all try to picture it in our mind’s eye. Blue skies are everywhere. More sunshine than we have seen in months. The sight of fresh dew on the budding earth. The flowers just beginning to show their brilliant colors. If I close my eyes, I can even begin to smell the fresh scent of spring mixed with cool, quiet breezes. Everything is in bloom, and nothing is covered in ice….Imagine it….

Clearly, I’m as ready as you are for the next season to begin. And I’m also ready for all of the journeys ahead of us. This spring, let’s celebrate by not only cleaning out our closets, but let’s check mark an adventure from the bucket list as well. And nothing sounds better to clear off my to-do list, than visiting the Mayan ruins in the Yucatan. This calls for a trip to Cancun, Mexico!

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Winter

As the frosty air penetrates through my windows during wee early morning hours and I snuggle tightly within the safe haven of my comforter, I wonder what will motivate me to get out of bed. Oftentimes, I dream about ways to escape my mundane winter schedule in order to relax and unwind. I might consider taking a short, weekend ski trip to the snow-covered slopes of Vermont, a romantic weekend hotel getaway for two, or even an entertaining New York City stay with an outing to a popular Broadway show I have yet to see. Other times, I imagine a longer, warmer jaunt with the family to one of the Disney Park destinations or even to sunny SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida.
