June 21 marks the official beginning of summer and the productivity slump most businesses experience. The sun’s tantalizing rays draw your eyes from computer screens or conference room meetings to the outside world. A weekend of fresh air, sunshine, and cool evenings on the back porch infiltrate your mind. Your productivity is sapped, but you’ve still got work to do. So, what can you do? Here are a few ways to combat the summer slump. DEFEATING THE SUM 3 Ways to Keep up Productivity During the Summer

Relax the Work Hours If you’re in a management position, consider tweaking the standard 9-to-5, Monday through Friday schedule a little bit. Some businesses will implement a 9/80 schedule, meaning employees work 80 hours in nine days instead of 10, so they can get every other Friday off. Some businesses will let employees work half days on Fridays during the summer, and others will let employees work remotely on certain days.

Get Moving Sitting at a desk for eight continuous hours can stagnate productivity at any point during the year, but during the summer, there’s an easy way to remedy it: getting a little exercise. Since the sun is shining, why not take advantage of it while you work? Try scheduling a “walking meeting” outside, or implement exercise breaks every couple of hours. Moving around boosts productivity, and doing it outside can be a great change of scenery.

Dress Down If shirts and ties are the norm at your business, you might want to consider embracing the laid- back vibe of summer by relaxing the dress code a bit. It’s a small way to ensure employees don’t feel like they’re missing out on all the perks of summertime without losing productivity. Plus, who wants to wear a suit in July? It’s tough to compete with the allure of a warm summer day, but sometimes those days can work to your advantage if you make a few simple swaps in your everyday work routine.

QUICK, SAFE, AND EASY TO USE

QwikStrip Serrated and Abrasive Strips

Few moments in orthodontics are more lip biting than interproximal reductions and cleanings. One slip, and you might cut yourself or your patient — and they probably won’t be giving you a referral after that. That’s why we’re proud to offer the safe, innovative QwikStrip Serrated and Abrasive Strips. These colorful tools were designed with doctors and patients in mind. QwikStrip’s unique grip allows for confident, single- hand use. This gives doctors far better tactile control, even when working in spaces other instruments can’t reach. Beyond this superior ergonomic control, strips come in single-sided, double-sided, curved, and serrated models. No matter your specific needs or strip preferences, you’ll find the right QwikStrip for the job. Best of all is the safety inherent in QwikStrip’s design. The strips are firmly embedded within the grip, and have a depth-limiting design to help shield both your hands and the patient’s lips and gums from any accidental incisions. Reducing this fear of harm makes for faster, easier,

and more accurate interproximal work — meaning less chair time for patients and less risk for you. So, regardless of which aligner system you’re using in your practice, QwikStrips should be readily on your tray. With a simple, color-coded system, you’ll know you’re reaching for the right strip every time. Your sales representative can ensure

you never have to worry about running out of these extremely handy tools.

Want to see how QwikStrips compare to your old interproximal strips? We have intro kits available to let you get a feel for this innovative IPR system. You can order online or talk to your sales representative for details!

Roadside Attractions With Fun for All Ages PG4

Roadside Attractions Worth Visiting ENJOYING THE JOURNEY

stretch, these are three roadside attractions worth checking out.

like some believe, but visitors of all ages will get a kick out of the illusions messing with their perception. Plus, the nearby hiking trails through the redwoods offer a free added experience.

The Lost Sea; Sweetwater, Tennessee

The Lost Sea is the largest underground lake in the U.S. Lying 140 feet beneath the surface, it’s a fun escape from the summer heat, since it’s 58 degrees year-round. Kids and adults alike can learn about the history and geology of the area on a guided tour through forest above and lake below. And afterward, you can stop by the general store, ice cream parlor, or cafe.

Dinosaur Land; White Post, Virginia

It might not be Jurassic Park, but it’s still worth a look. Nestled in the greenery of Northern Virginia, this park has over 50 life-size statues of dinosaurs of all kinds. Tours are self-guided, parking is free, and children (or adults) with dinosaur obsessions are sure to smile and point out their favorites. It’s certainly something to “rawr” home about. Whether these spots are your destinations or you’re just passing through on your summer road trip, visiting these roadside attractions and others like them will add some fun to your travels.

The Mystery Spot; Santa Cruz, California

The United States can be a weird place, and some landmarks definitely reflect that sentiment. Along almost every highway, bizarre landmarks draw road trippers of all ages. Sometimes tourist traps aren’t worth the price of admission, but when you’re taking your summer road trip this year and your family needs a place to stop and

Advertising itself as a “gravitational anomaly,” this wacky spot in the middle of the redwood forest showcases a series of optical illusions such as balls rolling uphill and a cabin where visitors can lean toward the ground and appear to defy gravity. It might not be aliens,
