Incentivize your team to get moving 🏃



When someone takes part in Bike to Work Day, you can tell by the grease marks on their calves and helmet on their desk.

Why Do I Feel Guilty When I Relax?


Ah, the weekend is finally here. You settle in to watch that new show you’ve heard so much about. But no more than 5 minutes into it, you start to feel uneasy — maybe even a little guilty.

Your brain starts listing off everything you could be doing right now instead of relaxing: All those dirty dishes are really piling up. I should probably begin that new exercise program I was supposed to start last weekend. Why am I so lazy?

Ripple pet of the week

From Ripple’s owner:

“Since I work 100% remote, Ripple is my work-husband! He knows that when we start work, his job is to lay in his bed, attend meetings, bark at the mail carrier and occasionally play fetch.

He’s very sweet, curious and never repeats office gossip! When he’s not at work, he loves to sit on my lap or a fluffy blanket and relax. He loves people and being part of everything – no matter what it is (except a bath or nail clipping)!”

💌 We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
