TOGETHER WITH MIRO
How well do you know your team?
1 truth 2 lies is a simple icebreaker to do and creates healthy banter.
Here’s how to play:
- Team members populate a total of three sticky notes with 2 lies and 1 truth.
- Once completed, everyone uses dots to vote for the one they think is the truth.
- Do a round-robin where each person gets to share verbally what the correct “truth” sticky was.
This icebreaker is really easy, quick and fun, and is a great way to energize your team before starting a meeting.
FROM THE GOOD TRADE
My Experience In Pelvic Floor Therapy: What It Is — And Why You Should Try It
Of the many, many things I was not prepared for when I decided to have a child, the postpartum experience is at the top of the list.
I’m not talking about the sleeplessness, breastfeeding struggles, being touched out, or general terror of suddenly having a helpless little person entirely in our care; I’m talking specifically about all the ways my body would be permanently altered.
I’d read the books and gone to the classes and followed the Instagram accounts, but I still went into labor and delivery with only a vague idea of what I could expect my body to endure, let alone what recovery would be like.

A QUOTE TO LIVE BY
From Marissa Mayer
“I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.”
Other stuff we’re loving this week…

💋 Beauty: If you need your makeup to last — REALLY last — all day long, check out Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray. Even if you’re moshing through a crowd, this stuff really keeps your face in tact.

PETS OF THE WEEK
This loving baby boy is Rocco.
He is a Shih Tzu, and because of his small size, his owner wanted him to have a commanding name.
He thinks he’s a big dog because he’ll stand up to big dogs like he’s his owner’s bodyguard. He loves to chase squirrels around the yard and up trees.
And he’ll sit under the tree patching out showing how tough he is (or thinks he is). But he’s really just a lover at heart.
