Appreciation is a two-way street for both companies and customers. Customers hopefully appreciate the products they’re buying and the business should appreciate its customers. After all, you wouldn’t have a business if it weren’t for the customers. Sounds like a healthy relationship with a nice balance of give and take. But, that’s not always the case. Sometimes customers feel buried under promotional emails, flyers, letters, or phone calls. That’s because some companies can be so focused on acquiring new customers, that they sometimes forget to take a step back and say, “thank you” to the ones that are already loyal to them.

Being a mom has never been a more demanding job.
In the 1960s, the average mom spent about 10 hours a week on childcare, according to a study from Pew Research. But even though women now spend on average 25 hours a week working outside the home, we still devote more of our time to child care than our parents did.
The same study also found that nearly 8 in 10 adults think women face a lot of pressure to be an involved parent these days. Hop on Instagram and it’s easy to see why. We feel instant guilt when we compare ourselves to the mom who somehow found the time to not only pack their kid’s lunch, but also cut the sandwich into the shape of a dinosaur (what?!), decorate the lunch bag (why?!) and then snap the perfect pic for social media (ugh).
Spring may be here, but winter is coming in Westeros. The final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones kicks off April 14th and it is shaping up to be epic. Don’t have time to rewatch the first seven seasons? Need a refresher on who is related and who double-crossed whom? We can help. We created a printable chart and character descriptions to help you keep the major players straight, so you can be the one at your watch party with all the answers.

Resolutions may be hard to keep, but doesn’t mean they’re doomed to fail. According to psychologist John Norcross, you have the best chance of sticking to your resolution when you set one that’s realistic and attainable—in other words, one that you can work little by little.
“Track your progress by recording or charting the behavior in question,” says Norcross. “Reward your successes, [and] reinforce yourself for each step with a healthy treat or a compliment.”
