January 29th is National Puzzle Day! Celebrate by exercising your brain with our office supply crossword puzzle and see how well you know your office supply trivia!
Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw, trivia, word searches, brain teasers or Soduku, puzzles put our minds to work.
Studies have found that when we work on a jigsaw puzzle, we use both sides of the brain, and spending time daily working on puzzles improves memory, cognitive function and problem-solving skills.
Word searches and crossword puzzles have the obvious benefit of increasing vocabulary and language skills.
Sudoku, a puzzle sequencing a set of numbers on a grid, exercises the brain as well. By testing memory and logical thinking, this puzzle stimulates the brain and can improve number skills.
The bottom line is, puzzles stimulate the brain, keeping it active and practicing its skills.
See how well you did!
Working in cold conditions isn’t just uncomfortable, it can be dangerous. Frostbite, numbness, dehydration and hypothermia are real concerns from chilly outdoor weather. If you’re working outdoors this winter, be aware of the dangers and stay safe.
Damp clothing can quickly drop your body temperature. It’s more important than ever to stay dry in the cold. Wear a moisture-wicking base layer to draw away sweat as you work. Wear waterproof gear as an outer shell to prevent your under
layers from getting wet. Remove any wet clothing immediately.
Just like you need to take breaks from your work throughout the day, your body needs to take breaks from the cold. Plan frequent, short warm-up breaks throughout your day taken in warm, dry shelters to avoid numbness and shivers.
Working in cold conditions isn’t just uncomfortable, it can be dangerous.”
Make sure to drink enough fluids, as you dehydrate faster in cold weather conditions. Dehydration causes headaches, dizziness and fatigue, and it’s important to stay alert outdoors. Eating enough food during the day, especially fats and carbohydrates, high-calories is also important. Your body uses those nutrients as energy to stay warm in cold temperatures.
and increases risks to your safety. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep to stay alert on the job when conditions are more dangerous. Avoid exhaustion and fatigue because they sap energy, and energy is needed to keep muscles warm.
