Gratitude During a Pandemic

World Gratitude Day "Keep the good vibes going" Turtles
Be on the look out in your mail for our gratitude mail outs. 💖

Every year on September 21st we celebrate World Gratitude Day. Here at Corwin, we think it’s a perfect day to reflect on what we are grateful for and spread the love to our coworkers and clients. With our current climate, we have found that the negative bombardment has us being intentionally positive. You may be wondering, “How can I celebrate World Gratitude day with my community?” Well, don’t you worry, dear reader, we have you covered!

Three Ideas to Celebrate World Gratitude Day

  1. Self-reflection: Why not write down what you are grateful for? If you’re feeling stuck or suffering from a bit of writer’s block, we have free downloadable templates below to help spark your gratefulness.
  2. Share your gratitude with others: Gratitude is best when shared! We know it’s hard to get together now – but if you’re able to socially distance – check out our Gratitude Game. It’s a great way to get to know each other and yourself.
  3. Keep the good vibes going: For every new customer that shares/emails/tags a photo with us of your community celebrating World Gratitude Day with our printouts, we will offer an annual membership for free!

Common Sunscreen Mistakes

  1. Applying AFTER going outdoors. Sunscreen needs to be applied 15 to 30 minutes BEFORE going outside to give it time to be absorbed into the skin. 
  2. Not applying enough. Experts recommend that an adult should use about 1 ounce of lotion for adequate coverage. 
  3. Not reapplying after swimming or sweating. Sunscreen that is not labeled “waterproof” or “water resistant” does come off while you’re in the water or sweating. Even waterproof and water-resistant sunscreens provide a limited window of protection. 
  4. Not reapplying at all. Many people have the misconception that one application of sunscreen will provide all-day protection. Not true. Sunscreen generally needs to be reapplied every two hours or after exercise or water activity. 
  5. Using sunscreen only when it is sunny. Sunscreen needs to be used on both sunny and cloudy days. Harmful UV rays can still affect people when it’s cloudy. It’s important to keep in mind that all people are at risk of skin damage caused by the sun’s harmful UV rays, so it is crucial to wear sunscreen regardless of your skin tone or ethnicity.
