Winter has started even if it still feels like fall. Boston has had record high temperatures for winter so far (2018). As we anticipate for our #BosSnow, we thought it was a good time to remind our customers about steps they can take to insure that their delivery isn't damaged by the cold.
We deliver organic fruit and snacks to hundreds of offices in the Greater Boston area, but many of the people who work in those offices don't know that we *also* deliver organic produce and groceries to homes.
Boston Organics has started a new series of posts for Meatless Monday recipes in order to offer ideas for vegetarian dinners and also to encourage a reduction in weekly meat consumption. This encourages a more sustainable lifestyle. Meatless Mondays are a way to show our customers that vegetable-based meals can be hearty and delicious and that they are a nutritious and environmentally responsible way to eat. This week’s featured recipe is for BBQ Beet Burgers.

It's March, which means we will soon start to see green shoots coming up from the ground and everything, from beer to bagels, turns green in preparation for St Patrick's Day festivities. As we spring clean and get excited for a new season, it can be a good time to think about ways for your office to go green, and not just when you're looking through your tinted shamrock glasses. Check out these steps that you can take toward a green office.
We seem to hear about mindfulness quite a bit these days. Though the idea of mindfulness has its roots in Buddhist meditation, a secular mindfulness has been popularized over the last few decades, and recent research into the benefits of mindfulness practice have earned further attention.
Mindfulness is the practice of slowing down and becoming aware of each moment. This is often accomplished through bringing an awareness to the breath, your thoughts and sensations, and your surroundings. Engaging in these practices can have noticeable benefits, including helping to bring you a sense of calm as well as increased patience and compassion for yourself and others. By bringing attention to specific moments, you may find that you remember them, and others, more clearly.
Having an increased awareness of the moment can help slow knee-jerk reactions to difficult or stressful situations, allowing you to be responsive rather than reactive. This is useful in all areas of life, but particularly in the workplace, where it may be challenging to balance the demands of colleagues and clients while trying to cram productivity into every moment.
There are many resources for deep meditation and mindfulness practice out there, from classes to apps. If you're not ready to commit to a specific practice, or just want to experiment with mindfulness in your working life, here are five simple ways to bring mindfulness to work.
