Sleep is so important! Although the amount of sleep required varies person to person, lack of sleep is linked to increased stress, burnout and can also cause cardiovascular disease over time. There are only a few (1-3% of the population) that are part of the ‘sleepless elite’: those that only require 5-6 hours and are able to function with continued high performance.

We all know a healthy diet is what we are supposed to practice. More than a century ago the United States Department of Agriculture began its healthy eating habits journey as a way to inspire people to think about what they consume and explore healthy habits. Familiar to many is the Food Guide Pyramid, recently changed twice since 2005 to represent the constant scientific studies changing what healthy eating habits look and taste like.

As the second position in M.E.D.S., EXERCISE may seem the most attainable, but can be one of the most difficult to sustain. Exercise must challenge you in order to make an impact. A workout is just that: WORK. This doesn't have to mean forking over hundreds of dollars for a crazy-intense program. It simply means adding physical activity to your daily/weekly routine that was not previously there. And, that can be difficult. You must work past your comfort zone, and here is where many of us fall short. Our own Shey P. describes how she still needs that beginning push to get her through her new program:

Meditation and Mental Health
This week, we focus on Meditation; primarily the importance of Mental Health and the paths we can take to keep each of our own healthy and in a ‘good place.’ This can be a challenge especially during time of uncertainty and unexpected changes. With the added stress of COVID-19 (Coronavirus,) our norms are flipped upside down and our daily lives along with them. This type of stress can wreak havoc on your mind. It can also leave even the most level-headed person feeling nervous. And, how about those who already battle with previous/current mental challenges? The constant worry, the anxiety of the unknown and the angst we all feel of just wanting this to be over can be overwhelming.
The impact of COVID-19 and the ongoing economic and public struggles leaves the Country feeling divided and unsure of where we will all end up. Many of us are left wondering, how do we proceed?

In a world secluded from one-another, some have never felt closer. It’s been said that ‘It’s sad that national/world disasters bring people together.’ Regardless of the cause, we dictate and share the effect. It is true we as a society are ready for COVID-19 to be over, but into what type of world are we reentering? That’s up to us.
As a merchandising company, we support grocery stores and retailers all over America. Our people are on the front lines, in stores, enabling essential services to continue during unprecedented times. These front line workers are truly unsung heroes.
Indeed, these are not usual times. On behalf of those working to provide essential services to all of us, we remind everyone to do your part.

As the Holiday Season approaches, we reflect on the previous year and our accomplishments, memories and events which influence next year’s direction and goals. At TNG Retail Services, 2019 is a year influenced by change. Change which began by the formation of a completely new company focused on bringing growth to retail via product movement. As we cross the threshold into 2020, we bring with us not only a new mission, but an important focus which will make 2020 our most important year yet: Our people.
