Emails that ramble on, or one’s that you can’t find later in a search.  Your inbox can be a source of annoyance.  On the other hand, do you ever hesitate to send an email because you are unsure about the proper etiquette?  I didn’t graduate from college all that long ago, but even when I was in school, there wasn’t a class or lesson plan addressing what feels like a real cause for confusion.

Here are 5 rules to email etiquette to keep in mind:

*Keep it short
*Reply to all
*Descriptive Subject
*Searchable Emails
*Keep it Organized

Back to Work Pick-me-up! Hot Chocolate Hacks

As many folks have recently completed a time of holiday celebration and (hopefully) rest, you may find yourself back to work and immediately feeling overwhelmed upon return.  The inbox is full to the brim, multiple people to call back, and a long task list to finally tackle after putting them off until your return.  You might walk in to work refreshed, only to want to go back to vacation halfway through the day.

Pause!!

Don’t fret ya’ll!  Put off all your “edible themed” new year’s resolutions for one more day.  Warm up with a fun cup of hot chocolate, and pretend, just for a moment that you are still enjoying time off.  This may seem cheesy, but you know you want to!  (And for the record it’s not cheesy, it’s chocolatey)hotchocolatefinal

I think the salted almond cup sounds delicious.  I would also like to try the mint chip affagoto 🙂
