How our Wiss Team Members Decompress During Busy Season

By Wiss Associate While in the midst of busy season, it’s difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Early mornings, late nights, sacrificing weekends – it’s the life of an accountant: working endlessly January through April (and let’s not forget August through October) to make sure our clients are well taken care of. So, who takes care of the accountants while they’re deep in the trenches? While here at Wiss we do our best to create a fun and inviting atmosphere, encouraging...

12 Days of Self-Care – Day 12: Paul Lembo

When you hear about self-care, the first things that usually come to mind are exercising, spending time with family and friends and other types of activities that make you feel at peace. Don’t get me wrong, I love hanging out with my daughter just as much as the next dad, maybe more. I also try very hard to be in the gym 4-5 days a week. However, there is one hobby that I participate in which most people probably don’t think of when they talking about self-care. In fact, I am willing...

12 Days of Self-Care – Day 11: Laura Grigoriew

In this fast paced world that we live in it is far too easy to forget about self-care. As the holiday season and year end approaches, the to-do lists are only getting longer which is why I love working for a company who cares about prioritizing self-care on that list! When I think of self-care, I think of the pre-flight safety cards that stress the importance of putting your own oxygen mask on first. My favorite form of self-care is backcountry camping. Day hikes are great for a...

12 Days of Self-Care – Day 10: Floriana Allen

I have many way that I de-compress after a stressful day at work.  I love being outdoors and being physically active and I am very lucky that my family wants to participate.  We go for long bike rides, take our dog for a walk, play basketball, play soccer, go swimming, etc.  There is something about the fresh air outside that rejuvenates and energies us as the same time creating memorable memories. I really enjoy cooking with my family. My daughter especially loves assisting me and...

12 Days of Self-Care – Day 9: Carol Mott

The most wonderful time of the year has arrived and with it most often comes the most stressful time of year! Especially during this time of year, we need self-care or as I like to refer to it “me” time. This does not come easy for me. It’s something I need to make a conscious effort to do. One way I practice self-care is by exercising. Sometimes I may do it alone and other times I’ll do it with a friend. Either way, I always feel better after doing it. Spending time with my girlfriends...

12 Days of Self-Care – Day 8: Jill Clancy

Christmas is my favorite time of year. It has so much magic, a peaceful glow of love surrounds it. The joy and memories it brings to my family is everlasting. With that being said please don’t think my home looks like it came out of a HGTV Christmas Special! I have never been an overall “Martha Stewart” type of person. In that I mean, I can cook with the best of them but when it comes to crafts, decorating and gift wrapping I fall short. So I play to my strengths, shopping and cooking. Shopping...

12 Days of Self-Care – Day 7: Jay Jenco

Self-care is important, and it’s something that is easy to under prioritize in our busy lives. We spend most of the day working and doing things for others, and it’s important to take care of yourself. There are a few activities I do in order unwind and relax. Every day, I take my dog on long walks/runs early in the morning and late at night. This is time I use to clear my head, listen to music, catch up on podcasts, think or nothing at all. It’s my time alone (with the dog), and...

12 Days of Self-Care – Day 4: Lauren Stella

Christmas is my favorite time of the year, even though I often feel some stress in those last days of trying to find the perfect gift!  During the holidays, or any stressful time, I have a few favorite activities that I lean on for self-care. The first, and most helpful, is spending time with my fiancé and our families. I am extremely family-oriented and always do my best to spend as much time with family as I can. I can always depend on my fiancé for a good laugh, my parents and...

12 Days of Self-Care – Day 6: Lexie Chen

Self-care is extremely important, especially in an industry like ours.  As such, I try to do everything in my power to ensure that my work/life balance is in check. During the off seasons, when I have more time to myself, I try to unwind by doing the things that I love: eating good food, spending time with the people I care about, travelling and trying to find new and exciting adventures in the area and abroad! I love to try different cuisines with my family and friends and living...

12 Days of Self-Care – Day 1: Steve Nation

Self-care to me is making good decisions, living a healthy and active lifestyle and spending time with family and friends. This starts with making good food choices, foods that are low in carbs, starches and fat.  Don’t get me wrong, there is definitely some pizza going down but it’s in moderation. Living an active lifestyle is important. I do group fitness classes with my wife; it’s fun to spend time together and push each other.  I also lift weights and walk for miles wearing a...
