Ideas on the programs to motivate remote workers to exercise/be physically active?
Apart from step counts and paying for a gym membership. We already have monthly reimbursement but I'm looking into ways to engage people and motivate them to actually use the money for the purpose. Some internal campaigns or funny competition but how to measure progress?
Bringing your sick kid into the office and into meetings with you all day isn't cool. Don't do that shit.
Trying to decide between the elvie stride and spectra S1. I have 4 weeks of maternity leave and plan to go back to work ( physically be present in office) after that. Need to order a pump while I have no clue on my milk supply, what could work etc. Shortlisted these since I felt being wire-free through rechargeable batteries would be a nice!
🌚 I’m almost 8 months pregnant and I’ve been waking up after only 5 hours of sleep to go to the bathroom (can’t hold pee longer 😩) - and can’t fall back to sleep. But then I’m a zombie and need a 2-hour nap in the morning, which is disruptive. Is there a more productive way to do a full night? (Natural sleeping pills? Chocolate?)
People who have children: we get you’re busy & that’s why you cut off your childless friends, but don’t come back 5 years later because you realized you need adult friends & are finally willing to make the time for those relationships. We’ve moved on.
If you’re expecting a child or have a small child, involve the friends that you want to keep around. The babies don’t keep, but the friendships do.
Sorry to come on strong, but this is a hurtful pattern I’ve watched repeating all around me.
So at the tender age of 41, my wife and I decided it would be a good idea to add a non-fur baby to the family. I’m buying her a watch as a gift but while at the AD of course I’m now thinking I...

First baby on the way and looking for stroller recommendations. We live in downtown dc, so need something that can (1) handle rough sidewalks, (2) has a car seat that snaps out, (3) can grow with baby
Good news and bad news: We are expecting our first child in the next 2mo. Sadly, we’ve also just lost a close family member. As a result, we’ve come into a little money and would like to put maybe $10-15K aside to start a college savings for baby. Does anyone have experience with this? What’s the best way to go about it? I’m not hugely familiar with this, but want to make sure I understand the fees and taxes that may be affiliated with different options. Would be grateful for any insight!

About to have first kid and looking to buy a small or mid-size SUV. Deciding between the Mazda CX-5 and a Honda CRV. (Or maybe RAV-4.) I like the way the CX-5 drives so much better but it feels very cramped vs. the other options. Any recs or considerations between these from other parents??
I use Anthem BCBS insurance. Just got a bill from the hospital for my 20 week ultrasounds imaging services. It costs $513 out of pocket. Because the service was back in Dec 2020, so it went against my 2020 benefit. This year I’ll need to do a 32 week ultrasound again in the same hospital, it’ll be another $500 out of pocket. I never know it costs so much before even having the baby. My deductible is $500, the year max out of pocket is $3100.
Any creatives have experience moving from a small market to a big one (specifically NYC) and have any tips? I've done good work where I am, far exceeding my title in my smaller agency/market, but I'm not sure how to translate that into hireable cool-kid NYC job requirements.

30th birthday present watch accessory ideas.
A lot of knowledge on here so asking for some help. It’s my partner’s birthday and I’ve no idea what to buy him. He’s a watch fanatic - Pateks (sports and dress), Audemars (sports and dress), Rolex (sports), Omega (sports).
I’m obviously not buying him a watch for his birthday (in his dreams!) but any idea for some good accessories? He’s already got a PP watch winder, and has bought multiple nice straps for the dress watches. I’m completely lost.
