Spring Birthdays and Adjusting to Global Changes
Hi there, how are you doing? I know it’s been a tough month with a lot of ups and downs. All of our lives have been affected by the global pandemic. I hope you all are able to stay healthy and safe and find ways to connect with loved ones through this time.
Even with everything happening, I’m trying to focus on what I have to be grateful for, like warmer weather and longer days. Spring is also when my wife’s birthday takes place, and I am finding some creative ways to celebrate her on her special day.
Spring brings a lot of birthdays around our office too, including Claudia’s and Evelyn’s, and we just celebrated Karina’s. We celebrate our team members’ birthdays by going to lunch, and it’s always a nice chance to spend time together as a team outside of the office. Even with very full days, especially during H-1B filing season, it’s important to find time in our schedule to celebrate these milestones that only come once a year.
As of last month, I officially completed my second fitness challenge, and it feels great to be done! I noticed that it was a little easier this year — still hard, no doubt, but I think I’ve built on my strength and endurance from last year and was better able to keep up. It feels good once you’re in a regular routine, and you almost start to look forward to the workouts. Now I just need to stick with it and maintain the progress I’ve made! Through this time, I think turning to some form of exercise every day is a good way to stay mentally and physically healthy.
Speaking of fitness, I got to go up to the Sierras in February and go skiing, which was a lot of fun. I’m still on the bunny slope, but I’m getting a little better each time I go. It feels great to be outside breathing fresh air and enjoying the beautiful scenery. I’m looking forward to next season!
