September Letter from the Editor

We have two articles from guest writers this week. Tim Loy shares his first thoughts on a program to increase safety awareness at Mallory in his article, “Safety is Our Mission: Avoiding the Perfect Storm.” Tony Machado weighs in on productivity by asking us to pay attention to the signs in, “What is the Canary Telling You?” I am a walker and I always have been. Other forms of exercise have come and gone, but walking is something I hope to enjoy for the rest of my life, which is one of the things that I love about it. When I have had a...

July and August Letter from the Editor

Who doesn’t love summer? The longer, warmer days trigger a sense of relaxation and ease. Even though most grown-ups don’t get to take the summer off, we still get a whiff of the “School’s Out for Summer” feeling by the time the 4th of July rolls around. I hope you all get a chance to get outside with your friends and family and enjoy some summer fun. Check out “Summertime – and the Living is Healthy” for some tips on having a healthy summer. If you have any great ideas for articles, please let me know. Our statistics show that you all enjoy...

May Letter from the Editor

At some of our locations, it has been a long, cold winter. But spring is definitely in the air and the days are getting longer. Many of us feel energized this time of year and motivated to put down the comfort food and start moving again. I try to get outside all year around, even in cold, wet Portland, Oregon, but I admit that is much easier to get out the door and go for a walk or run when the sun is shining and the days are longer. I hope that you can take advantage of the extra sunlight and longer days and get outside after work. Check...

April Letter from the Editor

This month we are featuring a few of my favorite things, humor and pets. We could all use a little more laughter in our lives and science backs this up. Check out this Month’s Health article, “It’s No Joke – Laughing is Good for You.” It was tempting to do an April Fool’s Edition, but we opted for a little humor throughout, instead. We also have a few statistics about our first four Mallory Minutes and I was not surprised to learn that the most viewed article is the Employee Spotlight. It is also my favorite part of every edition. So, if you...

March Letter from the Editor

In the Pacific Northwest, this is the time of year when there is a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel. It is still 45 degrees and rainy most of the time, but the days are longer and there is a little taste of spring in the air. What better time to renew your New Year’s resolutions or try something new? Tim Loy is experimenting with a treadmill at his stand-up desk. If you are in Portland, you should pop upstairs and check out his set-up! Work-life balance is something we all think about. This month I’ve combined our articles on...

What’s love got to do with it?

What’s love got to do with it?

That is a question that occurred to me, via Tina Turner, as I did research for this month’s article on heart health. Associating love with the heart is not random, there is a real correlation between lowered stress levels and being with people you love. It surprised me to learn that this was true, even if you aren’t getting along with those people! Also, people in a relationship tend to live longer. According to an article I read on the Rodale News website, feelings of love produce oxytocin, which protects your heart. Feelings of love,...

New Beginning

New Beginning

A New Year is a new beginning, but it is also the middle of winter. The days are still short, but they are getting longer and the weather makes many of us want to hibernate, not start a new diet and exercise plan or learn something new. Yet the New Year’s resolution is a strong tradition that encourages us to make changes and start fresh. I haven’t made a resolution in a few years – it seemed that since I never kept my resolution, why make one in the first place? After doing some research for this month’s article on New Year’s resolutions,...

Here’s to a Healthier, Safer and More Productive Workplace!

We are proud to be launching a Healthier, Safer and More Productive Workplace campaign here at Mallory Safety and Supply. Mallory Minute is an email newsletter, a website, and, most importantly, a place to connect with your coworkers around the issues of health, safety and productivity. As I have been working on this, our first edition of the Mallory Minute, I keep trying to slip “Happier” into our tagline, because that sense of happiness is so essential to our health and well being. Each month we will focus on a different member of the...
