HALT: Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired
In an effort to maintain our humanity and sanity at work, the Skratch Labs team has an annual all-company mental health day the first Friday of October. By taking this day off, our team is able to refresh and recoup after a long, rewarding season of getting hydration and fuel out to all our amazing customers. As we’ve said before, sometimes you just need to HALT.
We’ve spoken about HALT before in a couple of blog posts, but it’s a technique used by coaches, substance abuse counselors and mental health professionals the world over to determine what kind of support is needed in the middle of a meltdown. When you’re starting to lose it, ask yourself if you’re Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired. Then take the necessary steps to meet that need. Eat, talk it out, call a friend or take a nap. We hope to give the Skratch Labs crew an extra day to ask themselves what they need to feel awesome, and then go out and get it.
Here are some things you may want to know about this mental health day and what it means for operations at Skratch Labs:
- Our warehouse team cranks out shipments like nobody’s business, but any orders placed after 3pm MST on the Thursday/day before the first Friday of October (OCtober 5th 2023), will be picked and shipped next week. If you need Skratch ASAP, support your local shop! You can find our store locator here.
- Have questions, need guidance, training tips or a great recipe? Feel free to send an email to our customer support team or comment on our socials, and we’ll get back to you next week. In the meantime, tide yourself over by visiting more of our blog or FAQ.
Thanks for supporting us to support you.
