Happy Heart-healthy Valentine’s Day!

At OmniMount, we’ll be celebrating this holiday with loved ones and a heart-healthy gift or date. The American Heart Association has some tips about how to indulge your sweetheart on February 14th.

Consider … a handmade paper Valentine or poem … quality time gathered around a fire … raisins, grapes, or pretzels at school or day care parties … a romantic candlelight dinner at home … a volunteer date at a local organization … a beautiful fresh fruit gift basket … show Fido some love with a game of catch … got a box of chocolates? Enjoy a piece, freeze the rest … take a long romantic stroll with your sweetie …

Or, do what we do, and merge the team-building and social aspects of office hours with the benefits of regular exercise. Invite co-workers to a “Healthy Hour.” 

By supporting the American Heart Association, OmniMount hopes to play a part in the prevention, treatment and ultimate defeat of heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases.

Celebrate Worldwide Stand Up Days!

Several years ago, most of us weren’t aware of the dangers of sedentary lifestyles and prolonged sitting. Today, we know that many people – especially office workers – sit almost 10 hours a day, which is too much. Regular low-level movement is healthier, so switch from sitting to standing every 30 minutes or so.

To remind us to sit less and move more, engage with one of these upcoming stand up awareness days:

On-Your-Feet-America (00000002)

Happy Earth Day!

Earth-Day-2016-Poster-Earth-Day-Network
Join OmniMount in celebrating Earth Day today, and every day! The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans and helped launch the modern environmental movement. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world!

As an environmentally responsible company, we’re doing our part to protect the planet by reducing, reusing, and recycling. For example, our reliable PLAY25 will perform with the same ease in its 7500th motion adjustment as in its first. Plus, open-architecture design makes it easier to upgrade hardware without replacing the mount.

The theme this year is Trees for the Earth, because combating deforestation is one of the easiest ways protect our air and water. Check out this map to find tree planting and other green events in your area.

Reduce your risk of developing prediabetes

Diabetes_Facebook_NATIONAL_3A

Our friends over that the American Diabetes Association (ADA) are issuing a “wake up call” about the risk of type 2 diabetes. What can you do? Participate in the ADA’s prediabetes awareness campaign, then help spread the word about this critical issue to your friends, family, or neighbors.

Here are three easy ways to get involved:

  1. Talk about it. The ADA has a suite of online tools to help thoroughly educate you or someone you love. It takes less than a minute to find out if you have prediabetes, visit DoIHavePrediabetes.org to know where you stand. You can even text RISKTEST to 97779 to take the short test over the phone or via mobile device. According to the ADA, diagnosis is key, and research backs up that once people are aware of their condition, they are much more likely to make the necessary lifestyle changes.
  2. Take steps to make a positive change in your life. Cut back on sugar and carbs. Increase your daily activity level. Sit less. Stand more. Just move! The campaign features lifestyle tips and links from the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program. You may also want to consider a new app from Baker IDI Heart & Diabetes Institute in Australia, Rise & Recharge.
  3. Support the campaign. Share your favorite prediabetes prevention tools and ideas with co-workers, your community or social networks:
  • Check out the ADA’s public service announcements prediabetes at PSACentral.org.
  • Explore their fabulous Prediabetes Social Toolkit or link to the DoIHavePrediabetes.org site (hashtags include #NoOneIsExcused from #prediabetes).
  • Tack up posters and risk-test flyers on public bulletin boards located where many people gather.

However you choose to engage, do engage. If it doesn’t necessarily impact your life directly, remember, more that 86 million people in America alone have prediabetes. Your voice counts.

Office Spaces: Lifetime TV Has A New Take on Office Design

Prepare to see OmniMount TV mounts and Ergotron sit-stand workstations and monitor arms on a new reality show Office Spaces™ that has aired on Lifetime Television®, at 7AM ET/PT. In this new office makeover-type reality show, acclaimed Interior Designer, Kalyn Rothaus, transforms an outdated warehouse into a sleek, modern office space.

The twist? Her revolutionary renovation is for series producer BrandStar‘s own new corporate headquarters!

BrandStar is consolidating operations into one collaborative workspace for their 135 employees. Previously, teams were spread out over four floors and two buildings, which created team silos. Kalyn was up to the challenge with help from incredible partners and cutting-edge design and office products, including OmniMount ceiling mounts among others.

The premier episode of the 12-part series was released on September 24, 2015, on Lifetime, and the series aired on February 19. Tune in to see the show’s take on the latest innovations for creating the office of the future, increasing productivity, and recruiting talent. The episode featuring OmniMount and Ergotron will be airing March 11!

You can get in the loop with Office Spaces on social by visiting their WebsiteFacebook page, Twitter feed (hashtag #officespaces), or watch clips on YouTube.

This show should serve to inspire your next office rebuild.

Before the big game: Is your TV ready?

PLAY40_LS_2

Are you ready for this weekend’s Super Bowl 50? Whether your team made the cut for Sunday’s game or they were one of the 30 not-so-lucky ones, chances are you’ll still be tuned in to watch the Panthers and Broncos battle over the 2016 Vince Lombardi Trophy and NFL Championship title!

In either case, you should have the best viewing opportunity. Imagine it’s mid-day and the sun is up and there is a glare coming in from the window. You have a house full of people coming over at any moment, sitting at every angle, tightly squeezed into the space you call your TV room. Now’s the time to get your TV ready and OmniMount has a variety of styles and models for you.

In addition to the most anticipated game of the year, Saturday, February 6th is National TV Safety day.  While prepping for the big game, remember those little kiddos — and those big ones — that you will have over. The excitement can be overwhelming for all ages so make sure your TV won’t fall over, especially in high-traffic areas.

For extra peace of mind, secure your TV with one of OmniMount’s safety-certified wall mounts. Simply tether it to a surface with our TV safety kit. Or, better yet, mount it up on the wall with our full-motion TV mounts. Want your TV to be flush with the wall? Go with our deluxe recessed full-motion mounts!

Let us help you get ready for when the entire room jumps with joy at that winning touchdown!
