Have You Had Your Monthly Mental Health Checkup?

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology

Just as you visit the doctor for a physical or a dentist for regular tooth cleanings, you need to take responsibility for your mental wellness. How? Take a mental health day at least once a month, so that you can de-stress and recharge, says Dr. Michele Nealon, President of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. During these challenging times of crisis, it’s important to focus on your mental health as much as your physical health. “When your body is signaling you with a headache or stomach cramp, you need to pay attention to those symptoms,” she says. “Likewise, if you feel depressed or anxious, or if you feel constantly tired or unable to focus on tasks, it’s imperative you do something about that.” You may need to seek professional help, but Dr. Nealon suggests first giving yourself a mental health checkup as part of your self-assessment. Here are four inflation-proof tips to stay emotionally healthy: 1. Move your body. Try a new activity like stretching or going for a walk or hike to clear your mind and de-stress. 2. Eat a nutritious meal and hydrate. Focus on eating well and nourishing your body. 3. Catch up on sleep. If you are sleep-deprived, it can impact your mood and long-term health. 4. Be productive with your hobby and find balance. While crossing one item off your list can make you feel accomplished, spending the rest of the day doing what you enjoy will help you decompress. Taking time for self-care is a vital part of your mental health checklist regimen. And money should not be an excuse. “You do not need to spend money to relax,” says Dr. Nealon. About The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Integrating theory with hands-on experience, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology provides education rooted in a commitment to innovation, service, and community for thousands of diverse students across the United States and globally. Founded in 1979, the nonprofit, regionally accredited university now features campuses in iconic locations across the country (Chicago, Southern California, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Dallas) and online.

Minuteman Press Million-Dollar Circle Member Michael Levy Grows Sales for Levittown and Farmingdale Franchises

Minuteman Press International Inc

Michael Levy owns Minuteman Press in Levittown, NY located at 3000 Hempstead Turnpike. In June 2021, he also purchased the original Minuteman Press franchise in Farmingdale, NY located at 324 Main St. Already a member of the Minuteman Press International President’s Million-Dollar Circle, Michael has continued his strong sales growth in the first two quarters of 2022, including record monthly gross sales in March 2022. Key Drivers of Growth When asked about the key drivers of his growth in 2022, Michael shares, “Some would say luck, I would say persistence, perseverance and simply being known to be someone who gets things done. While there have been many challenges due to supply chain issues for the past year or so, I was able to use that to my advantage.” Michael further explains how he has been able to manage and overcome supply chain issues, saying, “For example, I had a customer contact me for a job I had never done before but I had done other jobs for this customer. It was a huge job, for 150,000 each of two envelopes. Someone else, who normally does this job for them, was not able to get the stock. So, the customer called me and told me what happened and asked if I can help.” He continues, “I spent two days researching and I was able to get both items for them and deliver them when they needed. One of the suppliers was through one of the field reps at Minuteman Press International, so it was great I could leverage that connection with my franchisor. I ended up producing $25,000 worth of envelopes I had never done before, and they just recently asked me to quote their next order of 200,000 of each one.” Michael sees the wide variety of products offered by his two Minuteman Press franchises as another competitive advantage. He says, “It’s examples like that envelope order plus the other items we offer that most other printers do not, such as in-house screen printing, embroidery, dye sublimation, and stamp production, that allows us to stay busy and grow. Another key is to have enough customers ordering products that when one is slow, others are not. This is a key ingredient, especially with my larger clients.” Promoting the Return of Live Events on Long Island As more live events, concerts, ball games, and trade shows return to Long Island, Minuteman Press is well-positioned to pitch in and help promote them. Michael shares, “It is very nice to be getting orders for tickets, programs, journals, and most importantly, items for trade shows and community events. Promotional items and apparel have really picked up over the past 6 months and that is because these events are happening again. That certainly gets me excited to be able to offer such a wide range of products that cater to all of my customers.” As for what advice he would give to other Long Island business owners right now, Michael shares, “Of course, every business is different, but one thing all businesses must do is to market themselves. Marketing is a very wide-ranging word and can be done in many different forms. Simply wearing a logo polo shirt is marketing. In addition, advertising, mailings, flyers, business cards, promotional items, apparel, and anything you can put your company logo on are all forms of marketing.” He adds, “That is exactly where I, as the owner of two Minuteman Press franchises, come in and help. We can put your logo on just about anything that allows you to market your business. I always tell my customers when they ask, ‘What type of marketing should my business do?’, to try a little bit of everything and see what works best for your specific business.” To find your local Minuteman Press on Long Island, visit their brand new consumer website, https://minuteman.com.

New A&M Fast Fashion Report Finds Retailers Up Against a “Gotta Have It Now” Culture

Alvarez & Marsal Consumer and Retail Group

· 50% of respondents want to buy a fashion trend within the same week they discover it · 40% aged 18-44 will compromise brand loyalty for immediacy · 70% are buying most often for themselves and 50% said personal brand drives their purchases Global professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal’s Consumer Retail Retail Group (A&M CRG) today released its Fast Fashion report, The New Evolution of Fast Fashion, which looks at the growing role and influence of fast fashion across all of apparel retail. Based on a survey of ~500 U.S. consumers that was conducted in June 2022, the report focuses on changes in fashion shopping, analyzing changing consumer demands, speed to market and brand loyalty; and provides guidance for fashion brands navigating the current environment. The study finds that fast fashion is poised to retain much of the ground it has gained during the pandemic. “As trend-conscious fashion shoppers became accustomed to shopping online for a plethora of instantaneously available new designs during the pandemic, even some high-end fashion brands and retailers are finding they need to adopt a fast fashion mindset to be successful,” said study co-author Michael Prendergast, Managing Director at Alvarez & Marsal’s Consumer Retail Group. “Retailers who are able to read social media sites for viral data indicators, deliver those or similar designs, and then adjust based on which ones do well or don’t on their own websites are on the right track.” The study also found that: · 49% of survey respondents buy their fashion trends online, while 35% shop for them in a mall · 32% get their fashion inspiration on social media, while 39% get it from retailer website · 30% of respondents purchase fast fashion at least once a week, while 65% purchase multiple items · Almost half of respondents said they’d check another retailer if a trend is not available; only 30% will check back with the same retailer for the same trend again “This craze reflects a massive opportunity across apparel retail—brands need to get the equation right and provide trends quickly and accurately, or risk losing out,” said Joanna Rangarajan, Senior Director at Alvarez & Marsal’s Consumer Retail Group and report co-author. “Companies can take steps to shrink their calendar, adopt a flexible and rapid design-to-delivery model, and make bold, data-informed decisions to keep pace with today’s insatiable customers.” The report provides insights into key fast fashion focus areas for retailers and brands to compete and survive in this new retail world. As detailed in the analysis, consumers keep raising the bar on their expectations of instant and constantly changing gratification, and retailers have no option but to try and meet them. Study Methodology A&M CRG’s Fast Fashion survey was conducted in the first week of June 2022, polling around 500 U.S. consumers ages 18-65 across all regions in the United States through an online panel survey. Income, age, and gender demographics were based on U.S. Census distribution. The Alvarez and Marsal Consumer and Retail Group (CRG) is a management consulting firm that tackles the most complex challenges and advances its clients, people, and communities toward their maximum potential. CRG combines the best of A&M’s broader firm's bias toward action and practicality with deep consumer and retail industry experience. CRG partners with businesses across a wide range of categories including Food & Beverage, Beauty & Personal Care, Grocery, Mass Merchandise, and Apparel & Footwear to drive significant performance improvement.
