    "The house absolutely glows with a new-found beauty. Tom is a genius in his ability to coordinate the work done to my home. In between many raindrops, he managed to get the painting done in a few days and have Mike, the roofer, and his crew tear off and replace the shingles and wood in two days time. And even though I'm on the west side, Tom was able to catch me before I left for work around 8:00 a.m. Your company has really boosted the resale value of my house. I plan to engage you again for interior work in the coming years. Thank you for a job well done!"

  • The Best Workouts To Relieve Stress

    [caption id="attachment_2569" align="alignleft" width="313" caption="Working Out = Working Better"]stress relief[/caption]


    We all know that working out is a great stress relief. Getting out of the office, away from your cell phone and laptop, and focusing on improving your body, both physically and mentally. Here is some advice on relieving stress through working out:

    • Take baby steps. Thinking about 30 minutes of an activity may feel overwhelming when your energy is low. Decide you'll just do a few minutes of something. Chances are, you'll start to feel more energetic and will keep going.
    • Keep it simple. Sometimes the thought of changing into workout clothes can seem like climbing a mountain. Choose activities that require very little preparation like walking, gardening, cleaning the house or some gentle stretching.
    • Ask for support. It helps to have a workout buddy to keep you honest. Try to get a friend or family member to meet you once a week for a walk in the park or a local fitness class. Knowing someone's waiting for you makes it easier to get going.

    For some more information on how you can relieve stress in the workplace, The Daily PT has some great stories to motivate you into working out more. Here is a great example of how exercising can lead to a possible promotion in your office:

    Need an edge to land that big promotion at work? Are you nervous about an upcoming presentation? There is a secret that most successful CEOs share. They work out — almost every day.

    Staying in shape and eating right makes you work more efficiently and productively. What’s more, working out on a regular basis leads you to make better eating choices. For example, you’re more likely to have a healthy salad then eat yourself into a carb coma at lunch when you have a regular fitness routine.

    You’re stress level will also be reduced if you hop on the Stairmaster. Fitness improves oxygen delivery to organs, heightens circulation, and cuts back on doctor visits and sick days.

    Regular exercise and proper diet can improve your performance at work in many ways. Here’s how:

    • 7 a.m.: Do you find yourself constantly running late? Do you rush to catch the subway or rush to get into work on time? If you exercise regularly you won’t be sweaty, stressed, and or too winded to say hello to the people you do business with.

    • 9 a.m.: Early morning presentation? If you’re used to that 6 a.m. spin class, this speech will be a breeze to get through, with less hills to climb.
